Franklin Foer In Conversation
with Hanna Rosin

September 14, 2017
Washington, DC

Hosted in Partnership With

Sixth & I

Over the past several decades, a profound consolidation of knowledge and information has changed how we contemplate the world, says Atlantic National Correspondent Franklin Foer in his new book World Without Mind. In it, he examines how tech titans Amazon, Facebook, Apple and Google have produced a culture of misinformation, one he argues is diminishing our capacity for private contemplation, autonomous thought or solitary introspection. In order to restore our inner lives, Foer writes, we must avoid being co-opted by technology’s corporate forces and understand the ideas that underpin their success.
