ECIPE Webinar: Open or Closed – Our History of Human Progress – and Stagnation

November 02 2020
Venue: ZOOM Webinar
Speakers: Johan Norberg
Time: 13:00

Please join us for an event with Johan Norberg.

Humanity’s embrace of openness is the key to our success. The freedom to explore and exchange – whether it’s goods, ideas or people – has led to stunning achievements in science, technology and culture. As a result, we live at a time of unprecedented wealth and opportunity. So why are we so intent on ruining it?

Programme

In a new book, Open – The Story of Human Progress, bestselling author and thinker Johan Norberg looks at world history in a new light. From Stone Age hunter-gatherers to contemporary Chinese-American relations, Norberg explores how across time and cultures, we have struggled with a constant tension between our yearning for co-operation and our profound need for belonging. He examines why we’re often uncomfortable with openness – but also why it is essential for progress.
