“I use ‘disruptive’ in both its good and bad connotations. Disruptive scientific and technological progress is not to me inherently good or inherently evil. But its arc is for us to shape. Technology’s progress is furthermore in my judgment unstoppable. But it is quite incorrect that it unfolds inexorably according to its own internal logic and the laws of nature.”
Join us for a discussion on the roots of conspiracy theories in the Middle East with Tarek Masoud, MEI Faculty Chair, Ash Center Faculty Affiliate, and Sultan of Oman Professor of International Relations at HKS.
Lunch will be served.
