Comandante. La Venezuela de Hugo Chávez.

Philipp Blom

La importancia de la Ilustración: Gente peligrosa.

Xalapa 2013, 
Vivimos en una sociedad creada alrededor del pensamiento ilustrado y su apuesta por la razón; en cierta medida, este modelo ha pasado a ser entendido como la “racionalización” de todas las áreas de la vida, en la que los países se confi guran como “economías” y sus ciudadanos como “consumidores”. Este sistema no le sirve a la mayoría de las personas y además ha pasado a ser una especie de religión, que sustituye a los modelos espirituales que antes conformaban la organización de las sociedades, en la que no queda rastro del modelo racional ilustrado. La pregunta es: ¿tenemos alternativas? En su libro Gente peligrosa, Philipp Blom (Alemania) propone rescatar el modelo y enseñanzas de la menos conocida Ilustración radical.
Se ofrecerá traducción simultánea del inglés al español

All that Remains: A Life in Death

Hay Festival 2018, 

Sue Black confronts death every day. As Professor of Anatomy and Forensic Anthropology, she focuses on mortal remains in her lab, at burial sites, at scenes of violence, murder and criminal dismemberment, and when investigating mass fatalities due to war, accident or natural disaster. She reveals the many faces of death she has come to know, using key cases to explore how forensic science has developed, and what her work has taught her. There is tragedy, but there is also humour in stories as gripping as the best crime novel. Our own death will remain a great unknown. But as an expert witness from the final frontier, Sue Black is the wisest, most reassuring, most compelling of guides. Chaired by Hannah MacInnes.

The Meme Machine

Hay Festival 2000, 
Our minds are fashioned by memes just as our bodies are fashioned by genes. Memes are ideas, behaviours or skills passed on from person to person by imitation. Memes are replicators, and are all around us in our everyday lives, competing to get into our brains and minds. Examples include the way in which we copy ideas, behaviours, inventions, songs, ctchphrases and stories from one another. Memetics can explain why we talk and think so much, why religious, cults and ideologies have such power over us, and how our telephones, televisions and computers could have been designed for the replication of memes. Memetic competition shapes our minds and culture, just as natural selection has designed our bodies.
