Metro Minute with Jared Diamond

UCLA Prof. Jared Diamond kicks off the University of Alberta’s Festival of Ideas lecture series tonight.

UCLA Prof. Jared Diamond kicks off the University of Alberta’s Festival of Ideas lecture series tonight. Diamond has become a popular figure over the past 15 years with the bestselling science books, Guns, Germs, And Steel: The Fates Of Human Societies, and Collapse: How Societies Choose To Fail Or Succeed. Diamond’s lessons are both unsettling and comforting, but always interesting. They are unsettling because they explain much of human history from a geographic perspective that makes humans look less in control than we think, and they are comforting because they reassure us that someone is making sense of it all.
