“Can men live without war?” Post your comments!

Posted September 6th, 2006 by Remlee Green


In 1956, MIT’s Vannevar Bush predicted that “the end of all war is now definitely in sight for the first time in human history.” The Information Intersection in the Stata Center currently features a poster that highlights Dr. Bush’s question, “Can men live without war?” We revisit his essay on its 50th anniversary and ask you, the MIT community, to post your comments. You can find the essay in the Atlantic Monthly at call number AP.A881 in the basement of the Humanities Library (v.197, Feb. 1956).
