Marta Lenartowicz holds a PhD in humanistic management with an interdisciplinary background in social epistemology, cognitive science, and complexity studies. In 2023/24 she teaches 'Complexity and Evolution' and 'Technology and Society' courses at the Department of Philosophy VUB and 'The Locus of Thought' and 'Thinking Studio' classes at the Postgraduate School of Thinking. Lenartowicz is currently involved in the following projects: the School of Thinking (instructor), the Human Energy Project (senior researcher), Buckminster College (principal), and a Web3 governance decentralization project for NuNet (governance decentralization architect and lead).
Lenartowicz is interested in theoretical and comprehensive design approaches to the evolution of intelligence, cognitive development, and distributed cognition. In her work, she is seeking to advance the conceptual and infrastructural underpinnings that govern the evolution of intelligence in human cognitive systems at multiple scales. Her long-term most serious intention is to advance the design and implementation of the planetary-scale unconditional basic income paradigm ('love notes in currency'), as a way for unleashing human creativity and intelligence from the short-circuiting, narrow-minded optics of survival, paying the bills, and crossing off KPIs. She calls that desired emancipatory outcome the human takeover.
