David Eagleman with Anthony Brandt

  • Kepler's Books 1010 El Camino Real Menlo Park, CA, 94025 United States (map)

Groundbreaking ideas do not appear in a flash of lightning. They’re cultivated by people and institutions who understand the implicit, human desire to innovate. 

Neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt celebrate their new collaboration, The Runaway Species, a comprehensive look at how and why we innovate. From Steve Jobs to Picasso, Eagleman and Brandt reveal the schematics of our innate creative software. What their combined look at the worlds of art and technology illustrate is a runaway species bursting with innovation, perpetually violating expectation in order to create increasingly more profound creative work.

Eagleman and Brandt go way beyond the open office. This is what creativity truly needs to thrive in our frenetic world. Kishore Hari, Director of the Bay Area Science Festival, joins these two leaders of their field on-stage for a conversation not only on how to harness our own creativity, but how businesses can (and, here in Silicon Valley at least, already have) curate environments where creativity can be encouraged and rewarded.
