After our popular book club reading Donald Braben‘s Scientific Freedom: The Elixir of Civilization, the author joins Anton Troynikov and Interintellects from around the world to discuss the future of research.


The subject of the first Interintellect Book Club, Scientific Freedom: The Elixir of Civilization, is an exhortation and roadmap for how to reform the way we identify, fund, and support scientists working on transformative research.

Braben is a fierce advocate for venture research – scientific programs that have a good chance of radically changing the way we think in an important field, and which are selected in face-to-face discussion – as a template for the creation of new scientific institutions for our era, to accelerate the engine of progress for the welfare of all humanity.

In this special “Author Salon”, join Donald Braben, the author of Scientific Freedom, in conversation with fellow Interintellect and book club Host Anton Troynikov, as we discuss the present state of scientific progress, the need for transformative breakthroughs, and the role of radical approaches in the academy.
