The future of man and society rests with man himself. Just as our technological future depends on our understanding of the working of nature, so our social future depends largely on our scientific understanding of the future of the workings of society. If we are to control and direct social life toward ends we believe to be worthwhile, we must first be able to explain and understand the mechanism of society in general, and for our own society in particular. This study, called social science, is obviously of vital importance today, and for this reason, it has been selected as the subject of this book.
