This Idea Must Die!
Science writer and publisher John Brockman (host of the online science salon, Edge.org) has an astonishingly broad and diverse circle of scholarly friends, which includes some of the brightest lights in countless fields. Each year or so, he poses a question to the group, inviting each to contribute a page or two to a new volume exploring the key question. One of the very best in the series is This Idea Must Die!, which includes over 160 truly unique and intriguing essays on how ideas outlive their usefulness, how old ideas fade, how new ones are born, and much more. Jim will provide participants a list of all the essays, choose several that he finds most interesting, and invite the group to nominate several more. We'll meet famous minds, brilliant ideas, and controversies worth reflecting on.
