Monstrous Technologies?—Philosophy Talk Live with Guest Persis Drell

Experience a live taping of Philosophy Talk radio, and see how much fun thinking can be

Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein raises powerful questions about the responsibilities of scientists to consider the impact of their inventions on the world. Are these questions as relevant now as they were 200 years ago? What insights, if any, should today’s technologists and disrupters glean from Shelley's story? What does it mean to take responsibility for one’s scientific or technological innovations? And what role should university educators play in ensuring that no new monsters are unleashed onto the world? 

Join our live audience at Stanford as we record Philosophy Talk, the nationally syndicated public radio show.
