Plato at the Googleplex

by Rebecca Goldstein

Plato at the Googleplex

Rebecca Goldstein

Overview

Rebecca Goldstein is a philosopher, novelist, and intellectual. Her research focuses mainly on philosophical rationalism. Goldstein believes that philosophy, just like science, can help humanity make progress and allow us to expand our consciousness to make sense of our environment.

Over the course of her career, she has written numerous fiction and non-fiction tomes. This book, Plato at the Googleplex, poses this question, among others: 'What would Plato do and say if he were alive today?'

Would we trust and follow Plato's advice if he was alive today? Has philosophy become obsolete? If Plato has taught us one thing, it's to question everything – get ready to do just that.

"If we don't understand our tools, then there is a danger we will become the tool of our tools. We think of ourselves as Google's customers, but really we're its products."
