Towards a New Enlightenment?
A Transcendent Decade
Eleventh title in the annual BBVA OpenMind series on the essential topics of our times
A review of the recent advancements in science and their technological applications, with a view to understanding the trends in current topics of interest (climate change, economics, globalization, gender, cyber security, etc.). The impact these changes have will depend upon the decisions we reach and on promoting extensive dialogue, in a “New Enlightenment” based on new philosophical and ethical foundations.
