The Young Karl Marx 

The Dutch premiere of the film about Karl Marx is today at InScience! It’s 1844 when 26-year-old Karl Marx meets Friedrich Engels in Paris. Engels provides the missing piece of the puzzle that composes Marx’s new vision of the world. Between censorship, police repression and political upheavals, they preside over the birth of the labour movement.

Christian van der Veeke, a political philosopher from Erasmus University College gives insights about Marx as a critical scientist.

Robotsafari through Hollywood 

Science fiction films abound with robots. From the terrifying walking skeletons in the Terminator franchise to the adorable robot in Wall-E and the life-like human replicants in Blade Runner. There are even robots without bodies, like the treacherous HAL from 2001: A Space Odyssey and the seductive Samantha from Her. In this lecture, New Scientist editor George van Hal, author of Robots, aliens and popcorn, will take you on a robot safari and show you how science fiction and science influence one another and inspire each other to reach ever-greater heights.
