Ideas, Lives, and Milieus 

Exploring the Historical and Biographical Contexts of New Ideas

The Future of Humanity: The Impact of New Technologies in Homo Deus

This facilitator led group will discuss books about the generation of new ideas in the 20th and 21St centuries. We will examine the lives of the main figures involved, explore the implications of their ideas for intellectual history, and seek to understand how their cultural and political milieus contributed to their thinking. The participants are requested to have a copy (ebook or print) of the book under discussion, read the part of the book that will be discussed at the next session, try to answer on their own the questions posed by the facilitator prior to the session; and be prepared to discuss their viewpoint during the session. 

Facilitator: George Melnyk
