The best way of understanding our civilization is to take an ordinary sort of day in the life of an ordinary sort of man, myself, for instance, and to see what he does. My house is in london.

The gas is supplied to me by the gas board for the area in which i live; it is part of a national system. The water is supplied by the city water board. After bathing i shave; the water for my shave comes from a kettle which has been heated by electricity ? So far as I am concerned, what happens is very simple. I put a plug in the wall and press the switch and the electricity does the rest I use a safety razor the blade of which made of very finely tempered steel, has been cut, together with millions of other blades, by a machine.

science has affected our life in innumerable ways. It has revolutionized transport and communications and thus made the world smaller. It has also made the world a better place to live in. We have well-lighted cities with good sanitation. Science has provided all kinds of substances and machines and sources of power. there is almost no end to the benefits that science has conferred on us. All the same, the work of science is no unmixed blessing. It has created new problems. Scientific industry is recklessly exploiting the new materials on the earth. Science has rendered life in cities less healthy. The overcrowding in cities, the air pollution largely because of smoke, cheap food deficient in vitamins - there are all dangerous to health. Again, people in big cities are denied sunlight, fresh air and exercise. Science has to attend to all these problems.
            Science has also to take up problem of social life. It has to work for freedom from war and various social and economic evils. Science can deal with these human affairs. There would be fewer follies, happiness and good feeling all round if we applied the scientific attitude to all our affairs. Properly using science and cultivating the scientific spirit man can control his density.
