Fourth season of dirty philosophy just started

A new season of dirty philosophy started with lecture on moral panics and video-games!

Like any other extremely popular form of youth entertainment, video-games followed the destiny of comic books, rock and metal music - it's identified as a main culprit for youngs disobeying the adults and sure sign of the end of the world. A short history of moral panics movements is exposed together with main sociologial approaches to analyse it. In the end a logic structure of such arguments is exposed as flawed.

Biograd Public Library lecture

Biograd Public Library lecture

I had terrific opportunity to spread the viruses of both science-fiction and philosophy outside Zadar due to call of couple of my former students Kristina Barbaroša, Sanja Birkić and Tihana Jurišić from Briogad Public Library. As a part of The book night festival, I held a lecture on science fiction and fact, futurology and a bit of research ethics. It was a great experience to be guest in small community library and to interact with Sci-Fi fans of various generations. We had interesting discussion on impact of technology across the lifespan.
