The final session of my salon series with Interintellect, “The Story of Industrial Civilization,” is Sunday, May 22, 10am Pacific.
It’s only open to series ticket holders. But you can still buy a (late) series ticket!
Progress is possible. Progress is desirable. How can we keep it going? Is progress slowing down, and why? What are the root causes of progress, anyway? In this final session of the series, we’ll explore the prescriptions implied by our study of progress so far. We’ll discuss the philosophical and cultural underpinnings of progress, including how society used to celebrate progress. We’ll sketch out the new philosophy of progress that we need, and the future of the progress movement that promotes it. And we’ll close with an inspirational message to scientists, inventors, and entrepreneurs.
A series ticket, now available at a discounted price of $150, gets you access to past recordings as well, so you can catch up on what you missed before joining the final session live.
