David Berlinski

On a new episode of ID the Future, philosopher, mathematician, and Discovery Institute Senior Fellow David Berlinski answers questions from Jonathan Witt about Berlinski’s celebrated new book, Human Nature. Download the podcast or listen to it here.

Is evolution carrying us upward to new heights of human goodness, as some have claimed? If not that, then will a computer-connected Singularity take us on that upward trajectory, as Yuval Noah Harari argues in Homo Deus? With his famous quick wit, Berlinski says no, and warns of a new “explosion of religion,” but a new religion, one without rational grounding and with a great willingness to punish dissenters.
