Science as a Force for Unity among Men

Auger, Pierre
June 1956
Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists;Jun1956, Vol. 12 Issue 6, p208
The article presents the author's comments on the task of science in unifying men among all nations. Men have made war at the level of the tribe, the empire, the nation, and, finally, at the level of world, however after certain conflicts, peace became established over wide areas where violent dissension had long reigned before. The author holds that this unity was achieved and will continuously be maintained by man through talking, working, and struggling together. Finally, he concludes that the common patriotism of man will find its sustenance in unity and the well-being and peace of mankind will benefit from it.
