Ascent of Man

A common assertion in some quarters is that science dehumanizes people. Jacob Brownowski counters that dogma and the search for absolutes are more dangerous, and more likely to bring out our capacity for inhumanity. View an excerpt from his television program, Ascent of Man, at this site. I found it quite thought-provoking. The program was made over 30 years ago, but Brownowski's idea remains relevant.
