Event description

Description

From Plato and Machiavelli through Ibsen and Heinrich Böll to, of course, Meghan Markle or Taylor Swift, we humans have been touchy, naive, pontificating, suspicious, complicit, fearful, advisory, and always very, very serious about our own reputation, if less so about that of others.

What once likely functioned as an in-group survival tool in the tribes of our ancestors is today the driver of countless publicity firms, obscure social media algorithms, and the subject of a century of psychotherapy sessions.

While our reputations may no longer determine whether we live or die in a hunter-gatherer community, it has enormous bearing on our social rank, income, relationship status and, as a result, our future within society.

At this Interintellect Salon we will focus less on the evolutionary psychology of gossip or the technology ethics of online bubbles, and instead attempt to define and investigate the ideal of reputation, and how it has changed over the past millennia into that thing that is so very important to each of us, still, today.
