The Quality of Progress

The concept of progress—the notion that somehow or other steady betterment is taking place for individuals and for society— is being increasingly questioned. It is not that people talk sentimentally of the "good old days." They have always done that. It is that for the first time in many centuries the forward movement of all human society is seriously doubted.

This advent of disillusionment should not dismay us. It gives a great opportunity for redefining the terms of progress—terms that have not really been questioned since at least the beginning of the industrial revolution two centuries ago.
