Philosopher Gloria Origgi has pinned down an elusive subject that, like it or not, affects all of us: reputation. From the ‘information age’, she believes, we are moving towards the ‘reputation age’, in which information has value only if it is already filtered, evaluated and commented upon by others - most of whom we do not actually know! Reputation has become a central pillar of collective intelligence today. Think of the Internet and social media. They allow for countless ranking systems and contribute to the creation of reputations in our social relations, in business, in politics, in academia, and even in wine. This is a fundamental paradigm shift in our relationship to knowledge. Join Gloria as she explains what reputation really is, why it matters, and how we can better understand ourselves and our behaviours by being aware of the subtle link between our reputation and our actions.


Gloria Origgi is an Italian philosopher, journalist, and a tenured senior researcher at the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS) in Paris. She is a best-selling novelist in the Italian language, a respected philosopher in French, and a cognitive scientist in English. In her research, she seeks to understand the impact of social relations and institutions on both cognitive processes and the organisation of knowledge.
