About Future Based

Future Based is an interdisciplinary discussion platform.

Why do we want robots? What about the ethics of new technologies? What is privacy? What is valuable? What role does intuition play in science? What is knowledge? And how do we obtain knowledge?

What is morality? What does ‘evolution’ mean? How do new technologies influence our norms of social interaction? What does science say about religion? How does religion deal with science? What is AI and can we speak of cognitive computers? Can we gather new insights into the world through art? Which role does art play in producing knowledge? What is intelligence? And how should we consider the intelligence of animals and plants? Are we hard-wired beeings? Does the world really change at a faster pace? What do the terms ‘sustainability’ and ‘innovation’ actually mean? What does it mean to be human? What are the consequences of my actions?

Asking questions can provide access into gaining insight. In many areas, too few questions are asked, or a subject is merely discussed unilaterally. Future Based organises discussions with experts in their field to ask critical questions. Not to necessarily find straight answers, but to formulate more specific questions, and to foster a deeper understanding of the world we live in. After all, the world is constantly changing. Nevertheless, there is a tendency to forget the importance of reflecting on how the world is changing, and in particular what the consequences of these changes might be.

With this Patreon page, we want to built a community of Future Based members; to foster new networks, reaffirm the power of conversation and asking questions. Philosophy as a form of activism to research and questioning established frameworks.

If you have questions, please contact us at www.futurebased.org or [email protected].

Thank you for supporting us and see you in the nearby future!


About the initiator:

Perhaps it’s something of all times….
to think we are on a turning point, but it seems to me that there are so many writings on the wall we can’t ignore that indeed we are, due to technology, living on the border of a paradigm shift. In my belief our world perspective will change dramatically in the coming twenty years. It’s just that we sometimes can’t see clearly what is right under our collective nose: our world isn’t only changing, it is changing faster than ever.

My name is Sabine Winters. I’m a 35 year old philosopher and free lance copywriter. As a professional in the world of philosophy and art, I’m practically oriented and interested in the process of idea development and the ‘how and why’ behind a theory or process. I’m an intrinsically motivated enthusiastic explorer, always open to new ideas and perspectives because I firmly believe in lifelong learning.

Over the last three years, I have encountered researchers, scientists, philosophers, artists, designers and entrepreneurs who are breaking the rules of their respective disciplines, often taken risks with new projects and experiments. I have had conversations over coffee with them, conversations by mail which got published in a book. Sometimes we did research together, or I followed them on their way. I wrote some of it down on my website earlier ( Denkkaders, (Dutch)), and organized lectures about crossover disciplines. Thanks to the possibilities of our modern era I connected with a curator in Milan and talked about the role of women in the world of art. I met values driven visionaries who are spreading their ideas through festivals, lectures and implementing their theories in society.

After a few years working in this field, it’s time to take this unbridled fascination on the ways we think to a new level. Through writings, podcasts and discussions, I want to contemplate with others - among, you! - about our ways of learning, about what we consider to be knowledge and how we try to find meaning in this faster than ever changing world.

Future Based values high the art of conversation, and I want to propagate this value by organizing meetups, lectures, courses and discussion. By doing so I want to facilitate not only a Future Based community, but also new networks and foster more crossovers between different disciplines and providing new insights about this fascinating time we live in.
