Published in 1974 and signed by numerous authors and others, among them B.F. Skinner, Jacques Monod and Andrei Sakharov. The author, Corliss Lamont, serves as nexus between Manifestos I and II. This second manifesto has a strong social-liberal tone. It highlights the need for economic and environmental planning that does not impinge on personal liberties, among them in particular the rights to suicide, abortion and the practice of euthanasia.
