Plants

30 April | 6:30 pm - 8:00 pm

All welcome | Free to attend | First come, first served at the door

 

Philosophers have long assumed that plants are inferior to humans and animals: static, inert, and unreflective. But recent scientific advances suggest that we may have underestimated plants. They can process information, solve problems, and communicate. We explore what plants can teach us about intelligence and agency, and ask whether plants think.
