Behind a technological smokescreen hides the nation of Wakanda, earth’s most powerful civilization. Wakanda’s innovations put them leagues ahead of other nations and grants them the power to aid those in need. Yet, the Wakandans are reluctant to help. We might ask why? Is this reluctance just selfishness and fear, or are there hidden costs in disseminating new technology? In this session of Young Philosophers, we will investigate this question along with others such as: What exactly is technology? Does it have an ultimate purpose? Does technology hold an inherent ethical dimension, or is the goodness or badness of technology merely relative to the one who wields it?
Young Philosophers is an online discussion for high-school-aged students. Join us for “Technology in Marvel’s Wakanda Forever” on Thursday, June 29, from 4-6 p.m. Pacific time. The discussion will be led by Gutenberg tutor Eliot Grasso. Participants should watch the movie before class.
