The Aspen Lectures

The Aspen Lectures convene some of the world's greatest minds in an interdisciplinary series that explores topics ranging from the Big Bang to representative democracy to Shakespeare. Presented by top intellectuals in their fields, the Aspen Lectures provoke, inform, and challenge us. These build on the legacy of the Aspen Institute as a commons for people to share their best ideas.
