Best known for her book ‘The Meme Machine’, Susan Blackmore will be speaking on the fascinating topic of memes: ideas, behaviours or styles that spread from person to person within a culture. Specifically, she will consider ‘temes’, which are memes that exist in technological artifacts instead of human minds, such as memes on the internet. She holds memes to be true evolutionary replicators, undergoing evolutionary change. She is also highly regarded within the skeptic movement.
