Walter Isaacson: Great Ideas from People Who Think Differently

« back to classes page
ClassGraphic Ideas are all around us and some people have ones that change the world. We will meet these individuals through Walter Isaacson, the biographer of geniuses and a raconteur without peer. His talks inform and delight us because they explain how thinking differently works. In weekly YouTube talks he analyzes the minds that innovate and collaborate, blends art with science, and follows their curiosity fearlessly. Isaacson, President of the Aspen Institute, Pulitzer Prize winning author, former CEO of CNN, has encountered a rich variety of different-thinking idea people; he invites us to understand why they matter. We will discuss exciting concepts and ideas such as: poet Lord Byron’s computer visionary daughter, Chicago architecture, the Internet in your hand, genes, electric transportation, and the third revolution. Study group participants will watch Isaacson’s videos before each session, then discuss them together for seven weeks of great new ideas.
