Talk Title

The City of Idiots

Talk Abstract

In the city where expertise goes missing–either because there are no experts, or because we don’t know who they are–is mutual assistance possible?  Can we help each other without knowing how to do so?  According to Socrates, the answer is yes.


This event will be held in-person and live-streamed via zoom.
