Abstract

In 1936, when H. G. Wells presented his proposal for a World Encyclopaedia to the Royal Institution, an actionoriented response commensurate with the magnitude of his idea did not ensue. It is a super university I am thinking of, a world brain no less, he said. The speech was printed in an obscure book titled World Brain, which is now out of print and hardly ever cited or discussed where it should be.
