For more than six decades, fellows in residence at the Center for Advanced Study in the Behavioral Sciences have explored vexing problems, extended knowledge of our world, and engaged in cross-disciplinary interactions that have led directly to breakthroughs in thought.
Each year CASBS is pleased to connect some of this extraordinary talent with public audiences. The Center's symposium series showcases current CASBS fellows and allows the public to consider their cutting-edge works-in-progress.
The 2017-18 symposium series continues this rich tradition. The featured speakers bring to bear the best in social science research with personal experiences that have influenced their thinking and should influence ours.
The consequences of contemporary technological innovations for the lives and values of future generations are enormous. The wide range of expected – and unexpected – applications require rethinking governance arrangements, legal regimes, economic structures, and social relations. Exploration of such topics is the subject of the 2017-18 CASBS symposium series.
