"Dr. Strangelove" Speaks to Today's Strategists:
A Book Discussion of The Essential Herman Kahn
12:00 – 2:00 PM
Walters, Weinstein, and Schmitt
By his untimely death in 1983, Herman Kahn — founder of Hudson Institute and one of the models for the 1964 movie Dr. Strangelove — was recognized by both friends and intellectual adversaries as one of the world's most prominent public strategists. Kahn was a brilliant futures studies scholar and a founding father of the field. Kahn's work was followed all over the world, and the directions he traced in the public debate on sensitive issues of crucial public concern continue to this day.
What can today's strategists, scholars, policymakers, and politicians learn from Kahn's prolific work? The Essential Herman Kahn: In Defense of Thinking, edited by Hudson Adjunct Fellow Paul Aligica and Hudson CEO Kenneth Weinstein, brings together the most relevant, consequential, and interesting themes, ideas, and arguments defining Kahn's work. To discuss Kahn's intellectual legacy, Weinstein was joined by Gary Schmitt, Resident Scholar at the American Enterprise Institute. Hudson Institute Executive Vice President John Walters introduced.
