How we change the world

Hardcover, 272 pages, EUR 21.00
With illustrations by Stefanie Harjes. Stefan Klein takes us on a journey through the history of creative thinking. From the innovations of the Stone Age such as painting to the invention of writing and the performance of the computers of tomorrow, Stefan Klein shows how the spirit has changed the world over and over again. We meet Neanderthals and Steve Jobs, Leonardo da Vinci and Ada Lovelace, Archimedes and AlphaZero. It becomes clear that we do not owe innovation and progress to the ideas of lonely geniuses - they develop in intellectual exchange. Because creativity, imagination and innovation are not individual talents, but arise between people. How did our world become the one we live in? How did we become what we are? And how does it continue? Every change starts with a new idea! The science author grippingly tells of the power of community, the future of thinking and the unlimited possibilities of our creativity.
Review note on Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, April 17, 2021
With the book by Stefan Klein, Wolfgang Krischke learns to what extent the development of the human mind depends on social framework conditions, on the density of the community and the cultural diversity. Political conditions do not appear in the book, explains Krischke, but Klein's reference to a "collective brain" as the origin of cultural achievements and his evidence from ethnological studies of oceanic cultures seem to him stable enough. The reviewer would rather not generalize Klein's results. He finds the book written alive.Read the review at buecher.de
Review note on Frankfurter Rundschau, March 20, 2021
Reviewer Arno Widmann identifies himself as a fan of Stefan Klein and was very happy to read his new book again. This time the author chased the critic "through world history in seven mile boots" to show him that change depends on human perception: our species is not geared towards knowledge, but rather on survival, which is why all inventions, including artificial ones Intelligence does not arise from pure logic, but also from feeling, summarizes Widmann. Klein stimulated and challenged the reviewer with his theses, but he also entertained him brilliantly with the illuminating anecdotes about them.
