Roszak examines some of the leading influences on the youthful counter culture of the late 1960s - Herbert Marcuse and Norman Brown, Allen Ginsberg and Alan Watts, Timothy Leary and Paul Goodman -- and shows how each has helped call into question the conventional scientific world view and in so doing has set about undermining the foundations of the technocracy.
