A very general lecture

Date & Time:
15:00:00 - 17:00:00,
Monday 17 March, 2008


The generalist seeks, not merely to know a lot of stuff, but also to tie it together in new ways. In this lecture I will talk about some insights, some startling, that have hit me in a number of different subjects, including education and evolutionary psychology.

This is a continuation of my ‘70th birthday lecture‘ at the University of Southampton: watch ‘Intertwingularity: when ideas collide’ (MP4)
