Mapping Mortality: The ways people die.
A Conversation with Deepak Chopra and Richard Saul Wurman on the book, "Mortality" by Richard Saul Wurman and Nigel Holmes.
Described by Fortune magazine as an “intellectual hedonist” with a “hummingbird mind,” Richard Saul Wurman has always sought ways to make the complex clear. He has written, designed and published 83 books on topics ranging from football and healthcare to city guides, as well as two books on Louis I Kahn (including the first to be published on him in 1962), his mentor, but he likes to say that they all spring from the same place – his ignorance.
Wurman also created and chaired the TED conference from 1984 thru 2003, the TEDMED conference from 1995 to 2010 as well as the eg, WWW and Intellectual Jazz conferences. He is currently developing the 555 conference, consisting of 5 experts, 5 predictions of future game changing patterns for 5 years in the future…FINDING THE FUTURE FIRST™.
This all sounds like he knows a lot about a lot of things.
The complete opposite is true.
His long suite is that he has continued to embrace his ignorance more deeply than others.
