Mary Catherine Bateson: Live Longer, Think Longer

Mary Catherine Bateson: Live Longer, Think Longer
We're not just living longer, we're thriving longer, but so far we seem to be thinking shorter. Aging societies the world over can benefit from increased longevity because human lives have added a new stage -- what Bateson calls "Adulthood II: the age of active wisdom." People of grandparent age, finding themselves with more energy and health than obsolete stereotypes had led them to expect, are seeing their lives whole and the world whole and taking on radically new activities in light of that perspective. These older adults have the potential to bring a longer perspective to decision making that affects the future.

Mary Catherine Bateson is a cultural anthropologist now 71, the daughter of Margaret Mead and Gregory Bateson. Her famed 1989 book Composing a Life showed how women were learning to treat their necessarily fragmented careers as a coherent improvisational art form. Her new book is titled Composing a Further Life: The Age of Active Wisdom.

IQ2: Feminism Has Failed

IQ2: Feminism Has Failed
Here, as part of Melbourne's IQ2 Debate Series, six very passionate feminists, including one male, go head to head.

After generations of effort, it's still very much a man's world. Women continue to bear a disproportionate burden of domestic labor, are under-represented in the senior ranks of politics, business and the professions, and they're still often denied equal pay for equal work.

But do women really only have themselves to blame? Is it female acquiescence that has prolonged male domination rather than macho-suppressive tendencies? Or should we be taking a different perspective altogether and instead be celebrating a wider victory, where concerns for equality have less to do with gender and are more driven by a concern for justice for all?

Regardless of the competing arguments, one thing both sides agreed on: there's much more work to be done.

Nixon in China, Hu in America

Nixon in China, Hu in America
Join theatrical director Peter Sellars and Orville Schell, Director of Asia Society's Center on US-China Relations, as they discuss the past, present and future of US-China relations as well as the role of culture in this constantly evolving relationship.

On February 2, Sellars makes his Metropolitan Opera debut with the groundbreaking work, John Adams's Nixon in China. According to Sellars, this exploration of President Nixon's historic 1972 encounter with Mao and Communist China "shows you what opera can do to history, which is to deepen it and move into its more subtle, nuanced, and mysterious corners."

The Metropolitan Opera's production of Nixon in China will be shown "Live in HD" in movie theaters internationally on Saturday, February 12. The production was originally created by English National Opera. The work was commissioned by the Brooklyn Academy of Music, the Houston Grand Opera, and the John F. Kennedy Center for the Performing Arts.
