09: We and The Digital World – Society and Business in Transition

-
Congress Centrum Alpbach
Breakout / Working Group
in deutscher Sprache

Everything is constantly available. We are becoming biased, we are not critical enough and cannot say for sure what is real and what is false. How does technological change affect our society, our political system, our economy – and are there systemic solutions for our digital future?

Dr. Richard David PRECHT

Honorary Professor, Leuphana University Lüneburg, Lüneburg

 Richard David Precht ist Philosoph, Publizist, Autor und einer der profiliertesten Intellektuellen im deutschsprachigen Raum. Er ist Honorarprofessor für Philosophie an der Leuphana Universität Lüneburg sowie Honorarprofessor für Philosophie und Ästhetik an der Hochschule für Musik Hanns Eisler in Berlin. Seine Bücher wie "Wer bin ich - und wenn ja, wie viele?", "Liebe. Ein unordentliches Gefühl" und "Die Kunst, kein Egoist zu sein" sind internationale Bestseller und wurden in insgesamt mehr als 40 Sprachen übersetzt. Seit 2012 moderiert er die Philosophiesendung 'Precht' im ZDF, für die er 2013 mit dem Deutschen Fernsehpreis in der Kategorie "Besondere Leistung" ausgezeichnet wurde. In seinen Publikationen und Vorträgen beschäftigt sich Richard David Precht seit vielen Jahren mit Fragen der Ethik. Was bedeuten Moral und Verantwortung in Zeiten globaler Krisen? Welche Auswirkung hat es, wenn wir unser Denken und Handeln nur mehr unter Gesichtspunkten der "instrumentellen Vernunft" - oder, wie wir heute sagen, unter Aspekten der "Effizienz" - bewerten? Wie müssen wir unsere Idee der "Bildung" erneuern, da die digitale Revolution unsere Lebens- und Arbeitswelt radikal verändert? Abseits verstaubter und abstrakter Debatten eröffnet Richard David Precht mit seinen Vorträgen neue Blickwinkel auf die wichtigsten Themen, die unsere Wirtschaft, Politik und Gesellschaft derzeit bewegen.
