In the course of this enquiry I found that much more had been done than I had been aware of, when I first published the Essay. The poverty and misery arising from a too rapid increase of population had been distinctly seen, and the most violent remedies proposed, so long ago as the times of Plato and Aristotle.

Impact of science on society:

The great technological revolution has brought about online databases, personalized web pages, discussion rooms and chat rooms. The Information technology sector has fully transformed human communication with the likes of instant messaging, video conferencing and emails. Technology has helped people to construct bridges to reduce the distance in their head. One drawback that has come with all this is the changing of people into lethargic beings owing to the high technological trends. It has greatly reduced people’s ability to pay attention. Computerization, automation and robotics are on the move to transform our lives. Getting the robotics implemented will help us to get cheaper labor and higher efficiency which will result in more productivity.
