  1. The Reality Illusion

    "Seeing is believing". "Seeing is the truth". Yet cognitive scientists seem to have uncovered these views as incorrect. Evolution led us to perceive what is best for survival and it turns out this has little to do with what we call ‘reality’. Is reality then a creative construct that helps us to live but doesn’t reflect the world? Are physical objects a useful hallucination? Or is the very idea of reality perhaps a mistake, and neuroscientists have just got it wrong? Cognitive psychologist and author Donald Hoffman, professor of philosophy and expert on metaphysical relativism Maria Baghramian, and post-realist philosopher Hilary Lawson embark on a radical rethink of reality.

  5. Political correctness: a force for good? A Munk Debate

    The resolution? "What you call political correctness, I call progress…"

    On May 18th, the redoubtable Stephen Fry (self-admitted soft leftie) and I debated the duo of academic, author and radio host Michael Eric Dyson (https://bit.ly/2IzKSZz) and blogger/author Michelle Goldberg (https://bit.ly/2wVOTBZ). A press release describing the debate can be found here: https://bit.ly/2IUnG7j

    Courtesy of the Munk Debates: https://www.munkdebates.com/The-Debates/Political-Correctness

    64% of the audience prior to the debate disagreed with the idea that political correctness was a force for good, while 36% disagreed (and 87% said they were willing to change their mind). By the end of the evening, 70% disagreed, while 30% agreed.

  6. Harnessing Evolution - with Bret Weinstein | Virtual Futures Salon

    Virtual Futures presents a special event with evolutionary biologist Bret Weinstein on how we might take human evolution out of autopilot, and the new tension this may cause between science and politics.

    Bret Weinstein has spent two decades advancing the field of evolutionary biology. He has made important discoveries regarding the evolution of cancer, senescence, and the adaptive significance of moral self-sacrifice. He is currently working to uncover the evolutionary meaning of large-scale patterns in human history, and applying evolutionary insight in the quest to prototype a liberating, sustainable anti-fragile governance structure for humanity’s next phase.

    In conversation with Luke Robert Mason, Director of Virtual Futures.
