Doha 2010 – Renovating the International System

www.weforum.org 30.05.2010 When states were the overwhelmingly dominant actors on the world stage and major policy decisions were commonly decided by a limited group of them, progress on international cooperation tended to be measured by the establishment of new intergovernmental legal frameworks and institutions. In a more complex and interdependent world, how can other potential dimensions of cooperation be more fully exploited, including practical, results-oriented coalitions, better information systems, strengthened existing institutions and more systematic integration of non-governmental expertise and resources?

Friedrich Hayeks lecture on Evolution & Spontaneous order at the 1983 – 33rd Meeting of Nobel Laureates at Lindau. We know that Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution is accepted by natural scientists. It describes how biological systems spontaneously evolve by the mechanism of natural selection. But is a similar spontaneous evolution taking place in areas of social construction and cultural behaviour? Friedrich von Hayek argues that this is the case. He underlines the complexity of the social systems and gives an historic overview reaching all the way back to Aristotle. As well as comparing and contrasting the mechanisms of natural and social evolution, and outlining the role of social evolution in the development and maintenance of civilisation.

  • @Malthus0 oh nice – now translation (although not perfect) will be possible 🙂
    If you would send me that file I would – after some time… – make a professional translation for you. I can’t upload such long videos, so you would have to add another subtitles to your video.
