Passion for Ignorance
Presenter: Renata SaleclLocation: 19 University Place, The Great Room
The lecture will explore the nature of this passion in times when we are facing political crisis, ecological catastrophes as well as changes in the way people are brought up, how they become social beings and how they internalize or not social prohibitions. It will also look at how science (genetics and neuroscience) contributes to the feeling of anxiety and how it opens new avenues of ignorance.
