Thinking Allowed

Here's a great way to energise your brain at the start of the year - browse through the latest musings from Edge. They asked 166 scientists, artists, philosophers and journalists to write on the topic of What Have You Changed Your Mind About?

Some of my favourite contributors are there, including Stephen Pinker and Nassim Nicholas Taleb; plus a few surprising and delightful contributions from the likes of Alan Alda and Brian Eno. I also like the contribution from James Geary, who changed his mind about neuro-economics: now he thinkgs it really can explain a lot of what's going on in society. Reassuring given my own focus on the topic from time to time in this blog!

Well worth a browse, and you never know, you might change your mind while you're there ...
