How to talk about the future

May 7th, 2008 | Posted by ptj in ProfPTJ's Podcasts

Here’s a talk I gave to the Phi Beta Kappa induction dinner at American University, 7 May 2008.

Note that I actually forgot to make the point I was planning to make about Battlestar Galactica: the show is effectively serving as a speculative world take on “alien-ness” by continually blurring the human/Cylon boundary. (That will make more sense after you listen to the podcast.)

Note that if you download this instead of playing it in the pop-up player, you get navigation menus — and a bigger image.
