The Transcendental Club

The Transcendental Club

By Nick Watson
We discuss contemporary issues of technology, philosophy, and science, primarily focusing on the influence of key developments. The discussions will largely revolve around modern developments and what they may mean for the future of humanity, both in our lifetime and beyond. Though the conversations will be primarily philosophical in nature, we intend to include modern examples and references that keep the discussion connected to the world we live in.
