Philip Fernbach will speak about and sign his new book, The Knowledge Illusion, on Thursday, June 8th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
Humans have built hugely complex societies and technologies, but most of us don't even know how a pen or a toilet works. How have we achieved so much despite understanding so little? The Knowledge Illusion argues that we survive and thrive despite our mental shortcomings because we live in a rich community of knowledge; we're constantly drawing on information and expertise stored outside our heads and usually we don't even realize we're doing it. True genius can be found in the ways we create intelligence using the world around us.
