Thirty-five years ago, C. P. Snow, in a now famous essay, wrote about the polarization of the "two cultures" - literary intellectuals on the one hand, and scientists on the other. Although he hoped for the emergence of a "third culture" that would bridge the gap, it is only recently - when books such as Daniel C. Dennett's Consciousness Explained, Stephen Jay Gould's Wonderful Life, Stephen Hawking's A Brief History of Time, Roger Penrose's The Emperor's New Mind, and Steven Pinker's The Language Instinct became bestsellers - that science has changed the intellectual landscape+-+19987393158686ocn061303499book20060.24My Einstein : essays by twenty-four of the world's leading thinkers on the man, his work, and his legacyBiographyEssays marking the centennial of Einstein's special theory of relativity include contributions from Leonard Susskind, Janna Levin, Lee Smolin, and others on such topics as the Einstein myth and his influence on modern physics+-+60987902857389ocn733224087book20120.19Brockman, JohnThis will make you smarter : new scientific concepts to improve your thinkingThis Will Make You Smarter presents brilliant but accessible ideas to expand every mind.

Many thoughts that resonate today are dangerous not because they are assumed to be false, but because they might turn out to be true. What do the world's leading scientists and thinkers consider to be their most dangerous idea? Through the leading online forum "Edge" (, the call went out, and this compelling and easily digestible volume collects the answers.

What makes a child decide to become a scientist? For Robert Sapolsky-Stanford professor of biology-it was an argument with a rabbi over a passage in the Bible. Physicist Lee Smolin traces his inspiration to the volume of Einstein's work he picked up as a diversion from heartbreak. Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi, a psychologist and the author of Flow, found his calling through Descartes. Mary Catherine Bateson-author of Composing a Life-discovered that she wanted to be an anthropologist while studying Hebrew. Janna Levin-author of How the Universe Got Its Spots-felt impelled by the work of Carl Sagan to know more. Murray Gell-Mann, Nicholas Humphrey, Freeman Dyson, Daniel C. Dennett, Lynn Margulis, V.S. Ramachandran, Howard Gardner, Richard Dawkins, and more than a dozen others tell their own entertaining and often inspiring stories of the deciding moment.
