Twentieth-century man is a baby in a wicker basket, wailing on the door- step of Doomsday. He has been abandoned, in all his vile innocence, to a fate beyond the reach of his imagination. No poet or painter can find the symbols to express the truth of man's fate, so much more terrible than he could make or will for himself.

Professor Wagar (late of Wellesley, soon of SUNY Binghamton) is on his holistic hobbyhorse again, cartographing a utopian cosmopolis of the future, very similar to what he did in The City of Man (1963) and with the same hectoring, self-assured naivete.

Wagar published 18 books. The City of Man; Prophecies of a World Civilization in Twentieth-Century Thought. Boston: Houghton Mifflin. Wagar's work on H. G. Wells began with his doctoral dissertation, which was published as H. Wells and the World State (1961), a study of Wells's political philosophy. The City of Man (1963) sees the imminent collapse of world civilization, which he regarded as an excellent opportunity: "There is no more opportune moment for radical change than in the aftermath of a world catastrophe". A Short History of the Future. Wagar, W. Warren (1982). Terminal Visions: The Literature of Last Things.
