Associate professor of philosophy David Livingstone Smith, Ph.D. is one of 25 people invited to contribute an essay to the first anniversary issue of Forbes India. The special issue entitled "The finest minds on the planet speak on ideas that they promise will change India and the world". The editor, Indrajit Gupta writes "never before has such a constellation of the finest minds around the world graced the pages of an Indian magazine.
The 25 stalwarts who’ve written for this special edition are drawn from a wide array of disciplines: From neurosciences to design, from philosophy to environment, from the information economy to social business. We invited them to answer one central question: What is that one idea that could change the world? The result: An amazing array of essays that provide an exciting peek into the future". Smith's essay is entitled "Inside the mind that kills", and summarizes some of his recent research into dehumanization and violence.
