Welcome to the Cognitive Engineering podcast. Occasionally coherent musings of Aleph Insights. We hope you like listening to them as much as we like recording them.


Are We Living in a Dystopia?

Quite aside from a pandemic, a brewing environmental catastrophe and a highly disruptive technological revolution, is the trend for protein shakes the real sign that we have moved into a dystopian nightmare?

We look at what constitutes a dystopia, how you can categorise different types of dystopia and why we conceive of them in the first place. We also attempt to measure how close we are to dystopia at the moment and explore whether we would be able to spot its arrival. Finally, we consider if there is such a thing as a good dystopia.

A few things we mentioned in this podcast:

- Are we living in a dystopia?
- Darren Allen’s ‘four kinds of dystopia’
- TV Tropes - dystopia
- British Social Attitudes
- The Economist - Global democracy has another bad year
