Introduction: the Greek way The Superconducting Super Collider (SSC), the dream of American high-energy physicists, would have had a circumference of 87 kilometres and a price tag to match. Its proponents justified the expenditure on several grounds. On the high ground, it would probe the universe to philosophical depths and thus ‘keep faith with the Greeks’. Below ground, it would advance tunnelling technique and give society perfect sewers. Congress cancelled it in 1993.

2. Medieval and Renaissance learning and practice The Indian Ocean and the Arabs factories established for mercantile trade in Guangdong. The Chinese began to re-establish their importance in the Pacific from the 13th century, and under the Ming dynasty in the 15th they were sailing to the west coast of India and to East Africa. It was in the same epoch that Europeans first sailed into the Indian Ocean from the west, though this was towards the end of the century, after the Chinese had disengaged.

3. From Stonehenge to skyscrapers An understanding of the past is an important influence on the way we approach the future. Through the past we learn for the future. The purpose of this chapter is to generate a sense of history of structure as part of human progression—not to describe lots of factual detail. I shall argue that one of the challenges of the future is to get back to some of the more integrated ways of the past.

1. “When the Negro was in vogue” The twenties were, as Langston Hughes remembered them, the period “when the Negro was in vogue” and “whites flocked to Harlem in droves.” In his memoir, The Big Sea , Hughes offers wry descriptions of the scene: the music, dancing, and nightclubs, fancy balls and house-rent parties, and the writers, almost all of whom he knew, respected, and mentioned by name.
