The complete review ‘s Review:.
At that time the potential that scientific innovation held was largely seen in the awesome destructive power of the atomic and hydrogens bombs. Science seemed to have outstripped man’s ability to utilize it for the betterment of humanity.
The Cold War, the arms race, and policies of mutually assured destruction suggested that instead science was too easily being used for bad — indeed, literally world-threatening — ends. Man could not be trusted with the knowledge that physicists were able to discover.
Die Physiker by Friedrich Dürrenmatt
The Physicists begins with a murder. A patient has murdered a nurse at the sanatorium. Because he is believed to be insane duefrenmatt criminal investigation is a largely superficial one. But the inspector does note his annoyance: Three physicists live together in the wing.
In fact, however, the three physicists are all sane. And he doesn’t feel mankind is ready for the consequences: The result is — devastating. New and inconceivable forces would be unleashed, making possible a technical advance that would transcend the wildest flights of fantasy if my findings were to griedrich into the hands of mankind.
The murders of the nurses were necessary, because each grew too convinced that the patients were, in fact, sane. She too knows more than she originally let on, and before they know it the physicists find they have dug themselves a hole out of which they can not easily escape. The moral dilemma of the modern scientist no longer excites quite as much as it did at the height of the Cold War, but it is still a very effective play.
