The challenges of modern life - Towards an intellectual self-defence
Nature's only experiment in higher intelligence faces a number of grave, existential threats. What intellectual resources exist to help us think our way through these dangers? Can these resources become the foundations of an intellectual self-defence against the urgent challenges that humanity confronts today?
Exploring themes as diverse as religion, psychology, philosophy and social theory, Dr Scott Burchill, Senior Lecturer in International Relations at Deakin University's School of Humanities and Social Sciences, presents this unique, controversial and thought-provoking lecture.
