The Future is what we make of it. But what will that be?

Population Explosion author and MacArthur Fellow Paul Ehrlich sits down to discuss the future before us and the world we want it to be, with Jeremy Lent, founder of the Liology Institute and author of the books "The Patterning Instinct" and Requiem of the Human Soul. 

Integrating science and meaning, Lent’s groundbreaking new book, The Patterning Instinct, reveals how our worldview has inherited preconceptions of the universe from
the past, and how shifting it could offer hope for a more sustainable future. Now, world-renowned biologist Paul Ehrlich, no stranger to unconventional thinking himself, shares an evening on-stage with Lent. Don’t miss these two major thinkers as they envision the world of tomorrow.

Jeremy R. Lent is a writer and the founder and president of the nonprofit Liology Institute, dedicated to fostering a worldview that could enable humanity to thrive sustainably on the earth.

Paul R. Ehrlich is Bing Professor of Population Studies and professor of biology at Stanford University and a fellow of the Beijer Institute of Ecological Economics. The author of Human Natures, The Population Bomb, and many other books, he is a member of the National Academy of Sciences and a recipient of numerous international honors.
