Debate/discussion after the film The Singularity. Led by Rinie van Est of the Rathenau Institute, Doug Wolens, the director of the film, Rachel Armstrong, future thinker among biologists, Iain McGilchrist, psychiatrist/philosopher and authority on human’s nature, and Richard Fortey, expert on natural evolution, will enter into a debate on the unknown, strange and beautiful world that awaits us.

The Rathenau Institute promotes the formation of political and public opinion on science and technology. To this end, the institute studies the organization and development of science systems, publishes about social impact of new technologies, and organizes debates on issues and dilemmas in science and technology.
