Anthropocene Campus | Technosphere/Co-Evolution
Sat, Nov 15, 2014 presented by Jürgen Renn and Manfred Laubichler
Can the technosphere, geology, and the human perspective be thought together, beyond the usual forms of narrative? Is photosynthesis a bad idea? What about all the biological symbioses? What about the human being as an innovative techno-species? What other “brains” exist beside our own? On evolutionary dynamics, from the function of regulation of niches and other, new frames of thought for evolution. A presentation of the Campus seminar Technosphere/Co-Evolution, led by Manfred Laubichler und Jürgen Renn.
Jürgen Renn is director of the Max-Planck-Instituts für Wissenschaftsgeschichte. Manfred D. Laubichler is professor of theoretical biology and director of the Center for Social Dynamics and Complexity at Arizona State University.
