    Like many nations, Japan is undergoing a surge in right-wing nationalism, the brand of nationism that is skeptical of globalization and outsiders. But while Japan's nationalism looks similar to other right-wing movements in the West, when you look under the surface, you see a totally different story.

  3. What people get wrong about climate change

    It's not about saving the planet.

    195 countries just made a historic agreement to battle climate change. But it's easy to get overwhelmed by the politics and details. Here we zoom out from the present moment, taking a look at where we came from to get a new perspective on where we're headed.

  4. Daniel Dennett on Tools To Transform Our Thinking

    http://www.intelligencesquared.com/events/daniel-dennett-on-tools-to-transform-our-thinking/

    Filmed at the Royal Geographical Society on 22nd May 2013.

    Daniel Dennett is one of the world's most original and provocative thinkers. A philosopher and cognitive scientist, he is known as one of the 'Four Horseman of New Atheism' along with Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris and the late Christopher Hitchens.

    On May 22nd he came to Intelligence Squared to share the insights he has acquired over his 40-year career into the nature of how we think, decide and act. Dennett revealed his favourite thinking tools, or 'intuition pumps', that he and others have developed for addressing life's most fundamental questions. As well as taking a fresh look at familiar moves — Occam's Razor, reductio ad absurdum — he discussed new cognitive solutions designed for the most treacherous subject matter: evolution, meaning, consciousness and free will.

    By acquiring these tools and learning to use them wisely, we can all aspire to better understand the world around us and our place in it.
