David Eagleman – The Power of Possibility



2012, Cultural Studies
Presented By: David Eagleman

David Eagleman discusses the value of uncertainty and coins the term “possibilianism” to describe an attitude that openly explores the space of possibilities and new ideas. The vastness of our ignorance should cause us to approach science, Eagleman argues, from a spirit of humility and a tolerance for holding multiple hypotheses simultaneously.
