Science: Robert Laughlin 'Crime of Reason'
Nobel-laureate Robert Laughlin argues that we are on the verge of a new dark age, as scientific and technical knowledge become the province of experts and the broader populace becomes more ignorant. In The Crime of Reason, Laughlin paints a troubling picture of a society in which the concepts of intellectual property are being applied to things as diverse as gene sequences and sales techniques. He describes the danger of allowing ideas to be legally elevated to the status of land and other physical assets so that their unauthorized acquisition can be prosecuted as theft. Presented as part of The Seattle Science Lectures, with University Book Store.
