Words in Pictures: Aldous Huxley

The visionary novelist discusses the environment.


Perhaps in honour of Britain's first ever Green MP, Caroline Lucas, the above is a 1962 interview with Aldous Huxley in which he discusses ecology. The author of Brave New World (1932) and The Doors of Perception (1954) laments contemporary preoccupations with power politics and the Hydrogen bomb, warning that society should turn its attention to "the relationship between man and his environment".
