Susan Blackmore: Genes, Memes and Temes
36 minutes of Susan talking about memes - and their future. She lays out the case for her proposed "genes / memes / temes" classification scheme.
Blurb: Are ideas, like the genes in our DNA, battling it out in a survival-of-the-fittest evolutionary race? Psychologist Susan Blackmore explores the science of ideas, and what it might mean if technology were able to replicate ideas, 'temes', outside of human control.
Susan was speaking at the How The Light Gets In festivall at Hay (Wales, UK) in 2011. Sue discusses drugs in another video.
