    Philosophers' Café | Human Experience, Greatest Freedom and Society
    Does the current nature of human experience represent an existential state where all our natural capacities have developed to afford humanity the greatest freedom? Is the conception of natural capacities intrinsically linked to society? What, after all, is a society? What is at the core of the idea of “greatest freedom”? How compatible is ego with the idea of collective or society?

    Philosophers' Café | The Global Supply Chain
    A recent issue of the journal Science was fully dedicated to the global supply chain (6 June 2014: Vol. 344 no. 6188 pp. 1100-1103). The fact that we can buy the exact same iPod or car in both China and Canada is a result of massive globalization. The energy and resources needed to feed this system impose a major stress on the planet’s resources. Exploring changes to this system opens interesting discussions as to how we are facing our common future.
