Gary T Marx

Gary T Marx, Professor Emeritus MIT, has been reflecting on freer, but less than perfect, societies for more than five decades since receiving his PhD from the University of California, Berkeley. This and related topics are explored in publications such as Protest and Prejudice; Muckraking Sociology; Undercover: Police Surveillance in America; Undercover: Police Surveillance in Comparative Perspective (with C Fijnaut) and Windows into the Soul Surveillance and Society in an Age of High Technology.

English translation: 'Utopias are believed to be reachable. Life points towards them. Perhaps one day intellectuals and thoughtful persons will find ways to avoid utopias and return to a non-utopian, less “perfect” but freer society'.
