Interview: 52 Living Ideas with Shrikant Rangnekar
I returned to Shrikant Rangnekar’s discussion group, 52 Living Ideas, for a conversation about the nature of progress. Topics included:
- What is progress? What is the nature of progress?
- What is progress in biological evolution? What is similarity and differences between biological progress and human progress?
- Is progress risky? Does it increase or decrease our safety?
- Just like there is a narrow concept of selfishness which is win-lose and a larger concept of enlightened selfishness which is win-win, are there analogous narrow & wide concepts of progress?
