“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.”
A seminar with Jonas Bergan Draege, Postdoctoral Research Fellow, Middle East Initiative. Part of the Middle East Initiative Research Fellows Seminar Series.
Moderated by Tarek Masoud, Sultan of Oman Professor of International Relations, HKS.
