On 16 and 17 September 2015, Lord Rowan Williams, former Archbishop of Canterbury, now Master of Magdalene College, and The Dialogue at Cambridge University Society will host ‘Growing Wisdom, Changing People’: a Dialogue with the Dalai Lama.

Decline reading group end of term report

Jun 26, 2017

In 2017 the Forum on Geopolitics convened a reading group for a series of eight discussions titled: ‘From Thucydides to Trump. Decline in History.’ The reading group investigated the causes of the decline of nations, empires and civilizations, bringing together participants from the fields of history, law, business, public policy, urban studies, physics, and ecology. The group read texts by Herodotus, Thucydides, Plato, Ibn Khaldun, Machiavelli, Rousseau, Hegel, Nietzsche, and social theorist Joseph Tainter. The texts were chosen for their theoretical power, intellectual rigour, and capacity to shed light on the state of the world in the twenty-first century. In a future effort, the Forum hopes to expand its scope of inquiry by addressing the problem of developing grand strategy in the context of decline.
