Brave New World Revisited is a collection of short essays by science fiction author and futurist Aldous Huxley. Partly an elaboration of the ideas that inspired his most famous novel, Brave New World, it is a capacious survey of Huxley’s philosophical attitude and orientation to the evolution of humanity and the problems of the modern.

Brave New World has been called a "novel of ideas," because Huxley takes as his primary focus for the fiction the contrast and clash of different assumptions and theories rather than merely the conflict of personalities.
