"Knowledge that cannot change behaviours is useless. But knowledge that is able to do so quickly sees its ability to grip things fade away. The more data we collect and the deeper our understanding of history, the faster history changes its course, and correspondingly, our knowledge becomes obsolete"
Israeli historian Yuval Noah Harari's words are the inspiration behind the series of meetings entitled How dare you? (from Greta Thunberg's quote that will remain in history, just like Martin Luther King Jr's I have a dream).
Three meetings to reflect with the philosophers Maura Gancitano and Andrea Colamedici on the legacy we are leaving ourselves and how technology changes how we understand ourselves, others and the world in which we live.
Philosophy is put to the test in the playing fields of the outside world and our inner worlds, in the open streets of the city and in the daily dynamics of life. In a society like ours where knowledge exponentially increases, and with it the complexity and uncertainty of living, the accumulation of knowledge inevitably leads to epochal, rapid and unpredictable upheavals.
