Brave New World? Science?

Brave New World? Science? Topic: Are mla papers double spaced
June 20, 2019 / By Eliza
Question: I have to read a book for my high school (junior) science class and write a one page paper/book report on the science in it. Would this book have enough SCIENCE to write a paper on it or is most of it more social studies, etc.? And would it be too hard to read for someone who's an above average reader that's not a fast reader but not dumb, that would only have like 6 hours to read it (I might use spark notes in addition to it... especially if it takes too long). What books could I do instead if so? Guidelines: [Quote:] The assignment should be a minimum of one page typed double-spaced. Times New Roman and 12pt. font. The top of the page should have the MLA reference for the book. The first paragraph should be a detailed summary of the main theme of the book. The second part should include an overview and justification for the science application in the book. Lastly, part three should be reflective on any application to today’s world. Is the science feasible? [End Quote].

Brave New World has a little science... but it's all unfounded as it's set in a futuristic society. For example, they have a drug called soma that basically fills you with euphoria while knocking you unconscious (and sometimes you won't wake up). It also includes the growing of children away from their families; some children that are meant to be "alphas" are raised well, while those who are meant to be lower ranked have alcohol poured into their "wombs." I don't know if that's enough science :\ But I honestly can't think of any other suggestions D: If you're in bio, you can look up books about islands where people are colorblind. There are several books on those, but I think many of them are quite lengthy! Hope that helps some x_x

Brave New World is Huxley's satirical look at a totalitarian society of the future, in which the trends of Huxley's day have been taken to extremes. When an outsider encounters this world, he cannot accept its values and chooses to die rather than try to conform to this "brave new world." People are bred to be something that is predetermined and are happy because that is the way they are put together. They are also given the drug "Soma" to keep them happy. As a result, these people have no system of values. In Brave New World the consequences of state control are a loss of dignity, morals, values, and emotions—in short, a loss of humanity. Interesting fact: The ironic title comes from Miranda's speech in Shakespeare's The Tempest, Act V, Scene I: "O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world That hath such people in't!" Edit Sunday morning: It isn't BS, but a very real concern for the future of our society. Much is being written and talked about today with stem cell research, designer babies, cloning, etc. It is a hot topic of ethical debate. Brave New World was a satire, but a very prophetic one. It was published in 1932 and Huxley wrote it as a exaggerated statement of the times. However, in 2008, we are MUCH closer to the realities of book - technology has advanced to the point where the world of Huxley's book is possible. The values that are referred to in this book are real human values, a system of what is important in life. In a Brave New World, no such value system exists. Technology has brought about the loss or abandonment of those values and the result is the weakening the fabric of society

I didn't like it either. It was bullshit (like most classics) and as usual, "values" means you've got to barf back what they want to hear at them (guess school hasn't changed much in 30 years). Sorry if that doesn't help you with your assignment...but you're not the only one who thinks/thought they were stupid.

I think the key to the values is that the BNW society is built around the principle of maximizing happiness. We say that our society is in substantial part dedicated to 'the pursuit of happiness', but any examination will show that we have many other values at least equally important. In this future, they are utterly committed to happiness. Thus freedom is disposable, and indeed unwanted, since free people make choices that they later regret, leaving them unhappy. A society must have people who will do menial, dirty, low skill jobs, thus one class is developed specifically for those jobs and trained from birth to want to do them. Sex tends to make people happy, but complex relationships fall apart more often than not and have huge unhappiness potential, so lots of casual sex is encouraged without real relationships, and with technology to prevent pregnancy and STDs. The Reservation is, in a way, the last outlet for happiness. Any society, to survive, much have an elite class which is self-observant and thinks about the future and evolution of their civilization, and makes key decisions about them. Such people are indispensable, but their work often makes them unhappy. For those who can't reconcile themselves to their environment and are prepared to accept the sacrifices involved, there is the reservation. For others whose dissatisfaction is more moderate, there is the knowledge that they are where they are ultimately by their own free choice, and can leave if they truly wish to.
