Elastic: Flexible Thinking in a Time of Change

Leonard Mlodinow
Thu 12 April 2018,

Drawing on cutting-edge research, Leonard Mlodinow takes us on an illuminating journey through the mechanics of our minds as we navigate the rapidly changing landscapes around us. He examines the new demands on how we must think in order to thrive in an era of unprecedented technological innovation and social change. How can we train our brains to be more comfortable when confronting change and more adept at innovation? How do our brains generate new ideas, and how can we nurture that process? Why can diversity and even discord be beneficial to our thought process? Mlodinow explores the qualities of thought that are becoming essential for our success and happiness and gives us the tools to harness the power of elastic thinking in an endlessly dynamic world.
