This Idea Must Die
Scientific Theories That Are Blocking Progress

Edited by John Brockman

Some concepts require a full book or two in order to lay the groundwork and make an argument; and some ideas only require a couple of paragraphs. This collection of short essays is a continuation of the series including the books "This Will Change Everything" and "What SHOULD We Be Worried About", which invite scores of respected thinkers to make statements on a subject. All of your favorites are here; Dawkins, Shermer, Norretranders… well, yeah like that last name, I have never heard of most of them, but they have some great, and for me, unexpected and exciting perspectives.
