This website is the result of our group work
elaboration concerning Aldous Huxley's (1894-1963) novel 'Brave New World'
(1932). All in all there were 15 groups of one up to two pupils who
worked on four different topics. These four subject areas which one
can see in the left menu include the concrete group results.
If you have any comprehension problems regarding
quotes from the novel or if you just want to save money, please read the
New World' - online version.
Leonard Huxley was a
British writer who emigrated to the United States. He was a member of
the famous Huxley family who produced a number of brilliant scientific
minds. Best known for his novels and wide-ranging output of essays, he
also published short stories, poetry, and travel writing. Through his
novels and essays, Huxley functioned as an examiner and sometimes critic
of social morés, societal norms and ideals, and possible misapplications
of science in human life. While his earlier concerns might be called
"humanist," ultimately, he became quite interested in "spiritual"
subjects like parapsychology and mystically based philosophy, which he
also wrote about. By the end of his life, Huxley was considered, in
certain learned circles, a 'leader of modern thought'."
