About this event

‘Multi-Dimensional Man’ is inspired by the concept put forward by Herbert Marcuse, namely 'One-Dimensional Man', which refers to those who accept whatever the society gives them and give up other possible ways of life.
Thus we invite four speakers to share their experience and attitude towards a multi-dimensional life.
