Brave New World
Brave New World | Aldous Huxley
Huxley's bleak future prophesized in Brave New World was a capitalist civilization which had been reconstituted through scientific and psychological engineering, a world in which people are genetically designed to be passive and useful to the ruling class. Satirical and disturbing, Brave New World is set some 600 years ahead, in "this year of stability, A.F. 632"--the A.F. standing for After Ford, meaning the godlike Henry Ford. "Community, Identity, Stability," is the motto. Reproduction is controlled through genetic engineering, and people are bred into a rigid class system. As they mature, they are conditioned to be happy with the roles that society has created for them. The rest of their lives are devoted to the pursuit of pleasure through sex, recreational sports, the getting and having of material possessions, and taking a drug called Soma. Concepts such as family, freedom, love, and culture are considered grotesque. Against this backdrop, a young man known as John the Savage is brought to London from the remote desert of New Mexico. What he sees in the new civilization a "brave new world" (quoting Shakespeare's The Tempest). However, ultimately, John challenges the basic premise of this society in an act that threatens and fascinates its citizens. Huxley uses his entire prowess to throw the idea of utopia into reverse, presenting us what is known as the "dystopian" novel. When Brave New World was written (1931), neither Hitler nor Stalin had risen to power. Huxley saw the enduring threat to society from the dark side of scientific and social progress, and mankind's increasing appetite for simple amusement. Brave New World is a work that indicts the idea of progress for progress sake and is backed up with force and reason.

"what need have we of repose when our minds and bodies continue to delight in activity? of consolation, when we have soma?" Finally finished ! I freaking love this book. Its so Bentham/John Stuart Mill-esque utilitarian it's scary. I couldn't find one likable character in the whole book, but the philosophy and the moral lessons kept me going. One of my new faves ! ?

Huxley shows a future where almost everyone is content and #EverybodysHappyNowadays with their lives due to eugenics and recreational drugs. Not all that impossible for a possible trajectory of humankind if we‘re not careful IMO.😱

Brave New World was published in 1931, but it holds up - probably best suited to sociology students, and/or naïve teenagers who need a bit of a wake-up call. It‘s definitely less depressing than 1984, if that‘s your concern – they still have sex, drugs, and rock‘n‘roll in Huxley's version of the World State, after all.

wow this is the first negative person i've ever encountered on litsy, which thus far has been a welcoming community of book lovers. just seems unnecessary to me 🤷‍♀️ Haven't posted in a while and to come back to this was pretty disappointing. Either way, i'm getting through brave new world right now and hope to review soon. Happy reading to all the rest of you 😁

TheEllieMo Oh no, sorry you‘ve encountered such negativity 😔 It‘s the first such incident I‘ve seen on Litsy! It‘s normally such a good place, full of people with a shared interest/passion. I hope you won‘t let this impact on your overall Litsy experience. I read Brave New World when I was at school, which is such a long time ago that I can‘t remember it at all!! May need to reread.

⭐️⭐️⭐️ Huxley boldly created a dystopian society ruled by biological mass production and homogenization through a version of Fordism (assembly line). Babies are born in human hatcheries and inserted immediately into a caste system. The idea is that complete social control equals happiness. This was groundbreaking in 1932, and I appreciate that it‘s one of the original dystopian novels, but it didn‘t blow my mind. Clever names, but flat characters.

Alfoster Agreed. But what I loved about teaching it was every year it got a little bit closer to the technology we have now. Kids were always amazed by that. 4w
britt_brooke @Alfoster That‘s such a great point! It would‘ve probably held my attention more had I read it in high school. 4w
RamsFan1963 @britt_brooke I loved this book, and I see echoes of it every day in modern society. Most people were sure with Trump we were heading for a world like 1984, but I think BNW is a much more likely scenario, considering advancements in genetic engineering and biochemical modifications. 4w

This SF novel, Brave New World by Aldous Huxley is perfect for LC. This was my favorite book that by Sci-Fi Literature class read in high school. It‘s about a dystopian society where Henry Ford‘s assembly line is revered as a god-like. Pick up the book and read it today! https://www.huxley.net this link talks about each theme in the story as well as gives an insight to what this society is all about. #ucflae3414su19

Interesting overall, but this novel is definitely a product of its time. Parts of it haven‘t aged well, such as the worship/exaltation of Henry Ford and the submissiveness of the female characters. Worth reading if for no other reason than to see 1930s cultural norms being imposed on a theoretical future.

Compelling and provocative, Aldous Huxley‘s Brave New World illustrates an almost satiric, yet prophetic society that makes one wonder about the worth of our intrinsic values. The morality of happiness is questioned, and we are only left to wonder about the “right” to be unhappy.

"Actual happiness always looks pretty squalid in comparison with the overcompensations for misery. And, of course, stability isn't nearly so spectacular as instability. And being contented has none of the glamour of a good fight against misfortune, none of the picturesqueness of a struggle with temptation, or a fatal overthrow by passion or doubt. Happiness is never grand."

"You remind me of another of those old fellows called Bradley. He defined philosophy as the finding of bad reason for what one believes by instinct. As if one believed anything by instinct! One believes things because one has been conditioned to believe them. Finding bad reasons for what one believes for other bad reasons–that's philosophy. People believe in God because they've been conditioned to."

”How many goodly creatures are there here! / How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, / That has such people in 't!"
— Miranda in ‘The Tempest‘ by Shakespeare

Brave New World is a Classic dystopian tale which serves as a commentary on modernity and the costs of happiness. Ideas propounded are insightful, thought provoking, and relevant. Characters serve as vehicles for Huxley‘s ideas in this portrait of a future world. ?

Dogearedcopy 🎧 The recording isn‘t great (booth noises and odd pauses) but Michael York‘s performance was wonderful, conveying the wonder, bewilderment, and outrage of various scenes, and delineating character voices well. Plus, it must be said that I‘m always a sucker for an elegant British accent 😉 10mo

Found this dystopian Classic in my Audible library and started listening last night. Wow. Snide, insightful, still resonates ... and I‘m only two chapters in!

#nofemmeber #heretic

In a dystopia, like the one in Aldous Hurley‘s Brave New World, questioning society and its forms and rules is heresy. In this one, children are born in laboratories, families do not exist and occupation and class is pre-determined. Inhabitants are kept drugged, entertained and compliant and dissenters are exiled. An amazing, mind blowing classic. (Art claudiastocker.com)

Centique @rohit-sawant that happens to me too! And sometimes you need to be in the right mood. When I read it I was in the right space I think, early 20s and questioning society and how it‘s made. It was the first dystopian book I read so it sunk in like water to dry ground! I‘m more jaded about dystopias these days. (Also old 😂) 10mo
Centique @Jeg it‘s quite a tough one to push onto teens perhaps? I hope you had a good teacher! 10mo
Centique @Billypar thanks! And yes, they do, don‘t they? Aldous was writing pre WW2 which is amazing. He really foresaw a lot of things. Post WW2 he might have chosen even darker ways to deal with dissidents perhaps. 😳😳 10mo
Billypar @Centique I had no idea it was published in 1932!! 😯 If you asked me, I would have said the 1950s. You're right- that makes it even more impressive. 10mo
Jeg @Centique we did have a good teacher. We also read 1984. Both books on the curriculum. However Brave New World has always stayed with me. Had more of an impact than I realised. I usually forget content of books but remember how they make me feel. With that one I remembered content and feelings. 10mo

I am impressed with the foresight Aldous Huxley had in 1932. While I enjoyed the unique and at times shocking aspects of his dystopian society, the story itself didn't keep me interested. I didn't feel any strong character development so it was hard to form a connection.
