Steven Johnson, best-selling author of books including Wonderland, Where Good Ideas Come From, and The Ghost Map, and the host of the PBS and BBC series “How We Got To Now” and the podcast “American Innovations”, joins us for an evening talk in the Intellectual Forum, Jesus College.

His writings delve into the intersection of science and technology within our lives, and have influenced everything from the way political campaigns use the Internet, to cutting-edge ideas in urban planning, to the battle against 21st-century terrorism. Steven is a regular contributor to Wired, The New York Times, the Wall Street Journal and the Financial Times.

In this talk, Johnson seeks to explore, if the hardest choices are also the most consequential, why do we know so little about how to get them right? In answering this, he will draw upon a number of important themes from his recent work and how we might best think about a world fraught with uncertainty, including insights from his new book, Farsighted: How We Make Decisions That Matter the Most.
