Image of The Physicists

The Physicists (German: Die Physiker) (written 1961, performed 1962, and published 1962, Verlags AG "Die Arche", Zürich, Switzerland) is a satiric drama often recognized as the most impressive yet most easily understood work of the Swiss writer Friedrich Dürrenmatt. Informed by the Second World War and the many recent advances in science and nuclear technology, the play deals with questions of scientific ethics and humanity's ability to handle its intellectual responsibilities. The play was first performed in Zürich in 1962. It was translated into English by James Kirkup, and published in the US in 1964 by Grove Press, under its Evergreen imprint. - Wikipedia
