トランプ時代の島国根性、人類が直面する難題の解決に役立たない―ホーキング博士最後の警告

トランプだけではない。テリーザ・メイ(ブレグジット)、ウラジーミル・プーチン、安倍晋三・・・みな同じだ。 

Stephen Hawking's last warning from beyond the grave,Sydney Morning Herald,18.10.16

By Nick Miller

An insular, Trump-age mindset won't help solve challenges like climate change and population growth, warns physicist Stephen Hawking from beyond the grave.


Hawking’s family gathered at London’s Science Museum on Monday to launch his last book, Brief Answers to the Big Questions, which he began but did not finish before his death in March, aged 76.

With tears in her eyes, Lucy Hawking listened to her father's narration over an animation explaining his insights into the paradoxes of black holes: a problem that he was investigating – and publishing research on – right up to his death.

"It feels sometimes like he's still here," she said.

But if he were he would be speaking out not just on the exotic problems of fundamental physics and cosmology.Advertisement

"He was deeply worried that at a time when the challenges that present themselves are global - and need us to come together and work together - that we were becoming increasingly local in our thinking," Lucy Hawking said. "That at a time when we should be calling for unity we were becoming more and more fractured and divided.

"I think that was a huge concern for him and one that you'll find all the way through the book… it's a call for unity, it's a call to humanity, to bring ourselves back together and really face up to the challenges in front of us and to work together to find a solution."

The book is a collection of Professor Hawking's favourite answers to the questions he was constantly asked over his acclaimed career, such as "will we survive on Earth?" and "will artificial intelligence outsmart us?".
