Jerome Wiesner dedicated to Jerome B. Wiesner
Co-founder, MIT Media Laboratory
President, MIT, 1971-1980

Certainly we cannot hope to solve the problems facing us without a greater understanding of the modern world, based on the integration of knowledge. Humanists must be educated with a deep appreciation of modern science. Scientists and engineers must be steeped in humanistic learning. And all learning must be linked with a broad concern for the complex effects of technology on our evolving culture.
