Bitte beachten Sie, dass die Buchbesprechung auf Englisch stattfindet.
Hertie fellows are cordially invited to a book discussion with Roberto Mangabeira Unger (Harvard Law School). The author will present the main theses from his new book The Knowledge Economy which will be released on March 19.
The book explores the hidden nature of the knowledge economy and its possible futures. Unger proposes a way to a knowledge economy for the many - through changes not just in economic institutions but also in democracy.
In addition, Nesta Foundation will give examples of innovative projects from their latest report on the same issue that show how Unger’s proposals can be put into practice.
Join us for a discussion on the knowledge economy and its transformative potential, chaired by Kai Wegrich, Professor of Public Administration and Public Policy at the Hertie School of Governance.
Snacks will be served. Prior registration is required.
Professor Roberto Mangabeira Unger, based at Harvard Law School, is a philosopher, social and legal theorist, politician, and author. His books include Passion: an Essay on Personality, False Necessity, What Should Legal Analysis Become, Democracy Realized, The Left Alternative, The Self Awakened, and The Religion of the Future. His political activity helped the transition to democracy in Brazil in the aftermath of the military regime, and culminated with his appointment as Brazil's Minister of Strategic Affairs in 2007 and again in 2015.
He was also a key influence and inspiration to Obama (as well as becoming one of his toughest critics). His newest work, The Knowledge Economy, proposes the way to a knowledge economy for the many: changes not just in economic institutions but also in education, culture, and politics.
A joint event organised by Hertie School of Governance, Nesta Foundation and Hertie Foundation.
