Inhaltsangabe

Each year John Brockman, publisher of Edge.org, challenges some of the world's greatest scientists, artists, and philosophers to answer a provocative question crucial to our time. In 2014 he asked 175 brilliant minds to ponder: What scientific idea needs to be put aside in order to make room for new ideas to advance? The answers are as surprising as they are illuminating.

In This Idea Must Die:

  • Steven Pinker dismantles the working theory of human behavior
  • Sherry Turkle reevaluates our expectations of artificial intelligence
  • Andrei Linde suggests that our universe and its laws may not be as unique as we think
  • Martin Rees explains why scientific understanding is a limitless goal
  • Nina Jablonski argues to rid ourselves of the concept of race
  • And much more.

Profound, engaging, thoughtful, and groundbreaking, This Idea Must Die will change your perceptions and understanding of our world today...and tomorrow.

    "Religion is dead - long live the new religion"

    Ideas are like trees. Some have to die to give the saplings the chance to get big and blossom. Asking a multitude of high level scientists to act like foresters and define the trees that should be cut down is simply a brilliant idea and I am looking forward to the 2016 edition.

    Funny to notice the zeal with which certain trees are defended that are deemed cutworthy by others. I am not going to highlight the arguments in the decision process, but just would like to advice to read the book and behold the enlightment by the great minds when the forest roof opens when a tree is cut down. Only one small proposal: slightly less Anglosaxon science focus would brighten the enlightment further.
