Douglas Rushkoff: Team Human

In an age where society is only growing more divided, Douglas Rushkoff endeavors to explain some of modernity’s most divisive influences and the importance of overcoming them. In his newest book, Team Human, Rushkoff argues that humans are inherently social creatures, achieving the greatest success and fulfillment when working together. However, Rushkoff describes how major underpinnings of society, such as wealth, education and technology, are actually further isolating people.

Rushkoff has extensively studied the impacts of modern development and technology on human life. From his thorough knowledge and research, Rushkoff has concluded that we need to place greater focus on human cooperation to overcome modern isolating effects. Join us for this discussion with Rushkoff to learn how we can remake society together.
