The “Interesting” Salon

February 21, 2021 at 2:00 pm - 5:00 pm IST

Start time where you are: Your time zone couldn't be detected

Fellow Interintellect Linus Lu invites you to fearlessly investigate what makes things interesting

What makes something interesting?

Why do different people find different things interesting?

What are some universal characteristics that make things interesting?

We’ll explore if and how things can be intrinsically interesting, and the process in which people develop interests through personal experiences, education, or maybe even through their genetics.

We’ll also explore the nature of the word “interesting”: how its colloquial use matches with its literal meaning, and what its pervasiveness in our everyday speech means for our culture and how we determine what is truly interesting.

As well as anything else that we find interesting along the way.

So if you’re interested…
