Imagining the New: Barriers and Opportunities

The products of science and technology often appear in the world with such force and drama that it is easy to conclude they are the world’s only sources of innovation. In the 20th century, developments such as antibiotics, the atom bomb, contraceptives, the space program, the Internet, and Dolly, the cloned sheep, altered the ways in which we imagine our capabilities and live. By casting science and technology as society’s prime innovators, we overlook other sources of innovative capacity that are particularly important to consider in a globalized world. Explore how an overly reductionist account of innovation contributes to global inequality.
