The Watchman's Rattle: Thinking Our Way Out of Extinction
This program is postponed until November 8
Rebecca Costa, Interviewer, The Costa Report, Author, The Watchman's Rattle: Thinking Our Way Out of Extinction
Sociobiologist Costa asks what happens to us when complexity exceeds our ability to handle it. The difference between the slow rate of evolutionary change for our biological bodies and the fast rate of technological change for our modern societies leaves us in a cognitive quandary as the complexity of our problems continues to increase faster than our ability to adapt. Will we succumb or overcome?
