ID: the quest for identity in the 21st century

Join Baroness Susan Greenfield for the launch of her new book exploring the threats to our individuality from modern living and what we can do about it.


Join RI Director Baroness Susan Greenfield for the launch of her new book exploring the threats to our individuality from modern living and what we can do about it.

What effect do video games have on our children's minds? How much information do the government and big companies really know about you? Our individuality is under the microscope as never before. Two huge forces – new technologies and old ideologies – are, in their different ways, threatening our minds. We have never more urgently needed to look at what we want for ourselves as individuals, for our children and for our future society.

Drawing on the latest findings in neuroscience, Susan shows how far we are in control of the development of our brains and minds - and looks at how we can promote our individuality and find fulfilment.

This event will explore what it means to be human in a world of rapid change, where we face an inspiring challenge to embrace creativity and forge our own identities.
