George Soros Lecture on Open Societies, Part 1

George Soros continues his week-long lecture series discussing open societies, the third pillar of his conceptual framework. In this first part of the lecture he reviews his personal experiences and philosophy, which led him to turn his attention from finance to philanthropy, with a focus on building open societies. Soros further explores the idea that Karl Popper's "manipulative function" takes precedence over the "cognitive function", leading to fallacies. See below for a transcript of the lecture.
