EXPLORING POSSIBLE FUTURES, TECHNOLOGIES AND HUMANITIES

maize is a quarterly magazine that explores the complexities of innovation and the shifting dichotomy between technology and evolution, through the lens of philosophy, arts, and humanities.

WHERE TO FIND US

Technological acceleration is transforming our innate habits, leaving us euphoric, uncertain, and longing to understand the meaning of our existence. But even as we delve deeper into innovation, at our core we are humans who make sense of the future and our world by interacting with other Sapiens. Our aspirations and inventions can only exist if our inner world resonates with others.

maize curates a collective of international voices who authoritatively examine innovation and its human impact. These brilliant minds share their unconventional perspectives and opinions to help us make sense the complexity of today’s society.

Each issue of maize is an aesthetic monograph, which explores a central topic through compelling interviews, reports, short stories, personal essays and visuals. This magazine is for those who love open discussions, philosophical ideas, and contemporary thoughts. It is also for those who are eager to discover new ways to develop foresight, be inspired, make informed decisions, and participate in the innovation process — all while staying human.

N. 6 - July 2019

Anthropocene. Now what?

As a side effect of its behavior, humanity is changing the world. The effects of this new era are not just territorial or climatic: they’re philosophical, cultural, anthropological — in one world, structural. We won’t easily get away with this, but we should not despair either. Now what?
