How does the history of ideas help us to understand what is happening today and will the multiple crises we are facing spawn new ideas about how we organise society? Professor David Runciman whose most recent book, Confronting Leviathan, explores the birth of new political ideas over the last centuries will be in conversation with Professor Arshin Adib Moghaddam, whose work investigates the impact of technology and AI on future politics and society. Chaired by Dorothy Byrne, President of Murray Edwards College. David Runciman is Professor of Politics at the University of Cambridge where he also hosts the weekly politics podcast "Talking Politics". Arshin Adib-Moghaddam is Professor in Global Thought and Comparative Philosophies at SOAS, University of London and Fellow of Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge.
