But the circumstantial evidence is more than enough to prove our case! A few pimples that decorated his forehead became noticeable as he brushed the hair off his face with his right hand.

In the rather curiously running conflict, which some see as an illusion and others as a street fight, between Snow's "Two Cultures," Aldous Huxley has left his final testament in this very stimulating and useful series of essays.
In them he faces the problems realistically, and not the least virtue of his work is to detach the argument from personalities such as Snow and Leavis.
As is so often true in stimulating and thought-provoking essays, Huxley raises more questions than he answers. He has come a long way from the early days when he looked upon human beings as "multiple amphibians. The past, present, and future meet in a man all in one nodal point even though wrapped up obscurely.

huxley literature and science
This study argues that the novels of Aldous Huxley written reflect the influence of Charles Darwin's The Origin of Species on the loss of faith and decline of traditional spiritual values representative of those times. An introduction places Huxley, his work and ideas, against the background of the late 19th century literary and scientific scene. It examines his position as a writer of popularity and influence in the years between the World Wars, in relation to his struggle to achieve a new perspective and sense of value. It also places Huxley in a critical context, suggesting that, while the decline in his literary reputation over the past 40 years reflects his weaknesses as a writer, his contribution to 20th century literature's revaluation of the role of man in an evolving universe, although generally overlooked, is significant. The first chapter looks at the ways in which Huxley's first two novels, Crome Yellow and Antic Hay , express his growing sense of the social and spiritual isolation of the individual in an evolving world, a world described by Darwin as 'an inextricable web of affinities'. This sense is brought about by his perception of the inadequacy of viewing the world in the traditional way, as a hierarchical ordering of creation with man at the apex, in God's image.
Literature and Science , published in September , was Aldous Huxley 's last book prior to his death two months later. The grandson of Thomas Henry Huxley , Charles Darwin 's "bulldog," and the grand-nephew of English poet and essayist Matthew Arnold , Aldous Huxley strived to harmonize the scientific and artistic realms. In Literature and Science , he hones in on language as the stumbling block that divides the realms. He analyzes and discusses how scientists and literary artists use language differently to achieve their desired effects. Recognizing that many differences in language use must persist, he nevertheless urges both camps to seek mutual understanding and appreciation.
He remains best known for one novel , Brave New World , a model for much dystopian science fiction that followed. Aldous Huxley was a grandson of the prominent biologist Thomas Henry Huxley and was the third child of the biographer and man of letters Leonard Huxley; his brothers included physiologist Andrew Fielding Huxley and biologist Julian Huxley. He was educated at Eton, during which time he became partially blind because of keratitis. He retained enough eyesight to read with difficulty, and he graduated from Balliol College, Oxford, in

- Ты уже задавал мне этот вопрос, помнишь. Пять месяцев. Я сказала. - Я знаю. - Он улыбнулся.
Ну, кто-нибудь. Разница между ураном и плутонием. Ответа не последовало.
Фонтейн насчитал уже шесть гудков. Бринкерхофф и Мидж смотрели, как он нервно шагает по комнате, волоча за собой телефонный провод. Директор АНБ напоминал тигра на привязи.
Мидж как ни чем не бывало стояла в приемной возле двойной двери директорского кабинета и протягивала к нему руку ладонью вверх. - Ключ, Чед. Бринкерхофф покраснел до корней волос и повернулся к мониторам. Ему хотелось чем-то прикрыть эти картинки под потолком, но .
У них всегда все было в полном порядке. - Все когда-то бывает в первый раз, - бесстрастно ответил Бринкерхофф. Она встретила эти слова с явным неодобрением. - Я все проверяю дважды. - Ну… ты знаешь, как они говорят о компьютерах.
Она поймет. Честь. Страна.
