PRESIDENTIAL ADDRESS-NAVIGATION AND ITS RELATION TO SOCIETY

Loren E. DeGroot

Peer Reviewed

Abstract: Increasingly, we have heard criticism leveled against high technology industries as a prime example of the misuse of scientific knowledge. Those opposed to technology speak with disdain about what they regard as the misapplication of scientific discovery. Because of their preoccupation with criticism, they would have us believe that engineers and scientists have done this country a great disservice. They have not recognized, or have deliberately ignored, the positive contributions that technology has made toward the improvement of man and his society.
