The rapid development of machines and technology that has occurred over the past several decades has drastically altered the human evolutionary process by the interactions of these machines with biology, society, and the environment. The quality of our everyday life as well as our long-term survival depend on how we succeed in understanding and guiding this new genesis.

Dr. Bugliarello is the Chancellor and former president (1973-1994) of Polytechnic University. An engineer and educator whose background ranges from biomedical engineering to fluid mechanics, computer languages and socio-technology, he holds a doctorate in engineering from MIT, and has received several honorary degrees. He is a member of the National Academy of Engineering and a Founding Fellow of the American Institute for Medical and Biological Engineering. He is former president (1992-1993) of Sigma Xi.

The Norman J Field Lectures in Science were established in 1991 in memory of Dr. Norman J Field, and are cosponsored by the Monmouth County Section of the American Chemical Society, the Monmouth Junior Science Symposium, the Friends of the Monmouth County Library Association, the Monmouth County School Boards Association, and by the Rutgers University Chapter of Sigma Xi, an international scientific research society. Dr. Field was widely recognized for his contributions in the area of public education. He maintained a lifelong personal and professional interest in scientific issues. It is hoped that this lecture series will serve to promote similar interest in science and science education among both younger and older members of the community.
