Summary and Info
The Future of Man traces the gradual development of man into the most intelligent and most dominant creature on Earth. But as man progressed materially, his intellectual growth did not keep pace. At least half of the people now crowding this planet would never have survived the rigorous selective processes that operated on earlier man. The author proposed various ways to deal with vast human derangement brought about by the decline in average human intelligence. These include means of enabling the less intelligent to limit their births to the number desired-and means of encouraging a substantial increase of good minds to cope with the world's intensifying problems.
