Hi, I'm Sam H Barton
This space is where I post and share everything that I'm up to and interested in at the moment.
What I'm about in a sentence:
I'm fascinated by the nature of the world and what it means for how we should act within it.
Here's how this takes shape in my life:
Podcast, Videos & Events
I host the Talk of Today podcast where I interview experts about developments in the world and what they could mean for the future.
Philosophy and Complexity Science
I'm currently studying philosophy and complexity science at the University of Sydney. We're at a unique point in time of history, perhaps the history of life itself.
We're at the helm of spaceship Earth and we have no idea how to navigate the uncharted territories we face.
I believe philosophy and complexity science can help shed some light on how we need to operate as an emerging global society.
We face challenges today that transcend national borders. The institutions and incentives we have in place are ill-equipped to deal with these challenges.
I believe a part of the solution to these problems is the creation of a digital global citizenship -- citizenship for all. This digital country could be used to advocate for global interests and act as a vehicle to deliver access to basic needs and rights around the world.
