Opting for an abortion, wearing a hijab or being groped against your will: the female body remains a battlefield. Legal historian and media critic Madeleijn van den Nieuwenhuizen talks with gynecologist Gunilla Kleiverda about the anti-abortion lobby, physical integrity and our ambivalent thinking about physical autonomy.
Reality+: from the matrix to the metaverse (in English)
16:30-17:20 // David Chalmers & Miriam Rasch
According to philosopher David Chalmers, there is no scientific explanation for how and why we experience consciousness. This opens the doors to crazy thoughts about our relationship to reality (what reality?) and the metaverse (fake world, huh?). David talks about this with philosopher Miriam Rasch. Brace yourself for dizzying thought experiments!
You are ecological (in English)
18:00 – 18:50 // Timothy Morton
It’s actually quite simple: we’re not going to save nature if we don’t learn to look at it from a different perspective. That different view comes not in spite of, but thanks to the climate crisis, argues the radical philosopher Timothy Morton. He provides us not only with a philosophy, but also with a soundtrack for the post-anthropocene. Because we can think about the past, we must feel and hear the future.
Many of the problems we face today are too great for the nation state. Instead of reforming politics, we’d better create a new online structure. At least, that’s how many blockchain and crypto entrepreneurs reason. Including Kevin Owocki. He is the founder of gitcoin (not bitcoin) and firmly believes that thanks to the crypto economy we can build a new world in which not money but the well-being of people and planet is central. He will discuss this with Elisa Achterberg.
