Ethical And Logical Stand Point On Future Humanity

Throughout our course of the DHC Integrated Learning, the terminology used can help one determine whether or not the two worlds that Huxley and Wells have presented are an ethical and logical stand point on future humanity. In Brave New World, they are creating gametes in dishes and growing â€Å"perfect† humans that are genetically modified to serve society in a certain way, in a certain class system.

Having that outside influence makes the cast system, and the dystopian vs. utopian idea of society fail. In the novel Brave New World and The Island of Dr. Moreau, one can see the contribution of themes that expand on science and technology. Huxley and Wells created this world where science is the ruler of one’s destiny. One advancement of science and technology is presented in Brave New World.
