David Eagleman, Anthony Brandt

In their new book, The Runaway Species (Canongate, £20), neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt look at the many aspects of human creativity and the history of innovation from the moon landings to Picasso’s ‘Les Demoiselles d’Avignon’. They offer a powerful examination of creativity, the strategies which stimulate it and how it can be a driving force to propel us into the future. Through understanding our ability to innovate – our most profound, mysterious and deeply human capacity – the authors believe we can rise to meet the challenge of remaking our constantly shifting world.  And at a time when the old ways of living are being torn up and re-modelled, human civilisation is facing challenges that require all our ingenuity and creative instincts.
