The Invention of Tomorrow | Thomas Suddendorf, Adam Bulley, Jonathan Redshaw | Avid Reader
Thursday, 9 February 2023
Avid Reader Bookstore, 193 Boundary St, West End QLD 4101
Join co-authors Thomas Suddendorf, Adam Bulley and Jonathan Redshaw in-conversation with Ashley Hay for a spellbinding exploration of the human capacity to imagine the future. This event will be recorded for ABC RN Big Ideas.
Drawing on their own cutting-edge research, the authors break down the science of foresight, showing us where it comes from, how it works, and how it made our world. Journeying through biology, psychology, history, and culture, they show that thinking ahead is at the heart of human nature-even if we often get it terribly wrong. Incisive and expansive, The Invention of Tomorrow offers a fresh perspective on the human tale that shows how our species clawed its way to control the future.
