Roger Scruton
philosopher and writer
In the next 18 years, society (i.e. Western society) should be addressing the issues of faith (whether, which and why), sex (whether, when and why not), food (what, why and where from), and children (whose and how many).
Todd Seavey
director of publications at the American Council on Science and Health, and editor of HealthFactsAndFears.com
The world's poor desperately need capitalism, the real engine of progress.
Hugh Sharman

Ben Shneiderman
professor of computer science at the University of Maryland in College Park, founding director of the Human-Computer Interaction Laboratory, and co-inventor of Nassi-Shneiderman diagrams
Human diversity is a strength and accommodating this diversity is a grand challenge that we should enthusiastically embrace.
Lionel Shriver

Victor J Stenger new
emeritus professor of physics and astronomy at the University of Hawaii in Honolulu, adjunct professor of philosophy at the University of Colorado in Boulder, and president of Colorado Citizens for Science

Dr Richard Sullivan
director of clinical programmes and centres at Cancer Research UK, and chair of the European Cancer Research Managers Forum
The personalisation of treatment is not only the grail for cancer research, but remains the only hope of ensuring that increasingly expensive treatments are affordable to society.
Professor Raymond RC Tallis
gerontologist, philosopher, and writer
The great challenge for the immediate future is to find a way of thinking about ourselves, about human nature, that does not fall into one of two traps: a supernaturalism that sees our destiny as predetermined by the essence that has been implanted in us by a Creator; and a naturalism that says that we are entirely parts of nature and subject to natural laws.
David S Taylor
creator of the People’s Petition for Medical Research
If party politics continues to revolve around focus groups and fads, rather than principles, the web will become the single most important engine for achieving political change in our society.
