Description
In a rising tide of doomsday scenarios—climate change, global terrorism, pandemics, and more—it seems that things are bad and getting worse. Yet despite such dire predictions, scientists see many good things on the horizon. Spanning a range of topics from string theory to education, from population growth to medicine, this book presents an impressive array of reasoned optimistic visions from some 150 Nobel Laureates, Pulitzer Prize winners, Ivy League professors, and other intellectuals, including Steven Pinker, Richard Dawkins, and Jared Diamond. Their provocative and controversial ideas may rouse skepticism, but could also change our perceptions of humanity's future. Science writer and nonfiction literary agent John Brockman is also the creator of Edge Foundation and the website www.edge.org, an online forum for some of the leading scientists and scholars of the day. On his site Brockman annually proposes an open question; this intriguing and browsable book, like the others in this series, presents the collected answers to those questions.
