Dialogues | Munk Debates

BIG IDEAS. SMART CONVERSATION.

Munk Dialogues

The Munk Dialogues explore the topic of reason and rationality, from the perspective of the individual to society at large. How do our brains actually work when it comes to our faculty to reason? What role does reason play in our evolution as a species and the development of the modern society? And, what is happening to reason and rationality today? Are we losing our capacity to reason together, and if so, why? The 2022 Munk Dialogues explore the cutting edge of how we think with some of the world’s brightest minds and sharpest intellects.
