Orwell and Huxley

A look at two writers and thinkers: Aldous Huxley and George Orwell.

A discussion of two great writers of our recent past, George Orwell and Aldous Huxley, and how they have through their writings shown us a glimpse of tomorrow. The author examines their insight as belonging to the field of inner space, the area where philosophy meets religion, and scientific intention and invention.
“Huxley and Orwell were already respected writers before major success entered their lives. They had no reputation for hucksterism of any kind or much regard for organized religion and spiritual matters. These were simply men of tremendous talent and conscience deeply concerned about the world’s state of affairs. I declare that any prescience emerging from their work is derived from natural creativity and honest investigation.”
