Summary

#8: With the Vietnam War in full swing governments tended to involve scientists in the militarization of society and the May ‘68 movement prompted a whole generation of researchers to challenge this harnessing of science to destroy the world. Like the group "Survivre et vivre” (Surviving and Living), their criticism of nuclear weaponry evolved into protest against civilian nuclear power. By taking up environmental issues, they helped to lay the foundations of modern ecology.
