Jim’s career spans both academic science and business. But he is also an award-winning popular science writer, and the nature of reality has always fascinated him. From his research on the social construction of reality he concludes that, as human beings, we rely utterly on the reality that we create in our own minds, derived from all our experiences with the social and physical worlds. What we perceive and understand to be reality is entirely personal, and therefore extraordinarily vulnerable.
At #TEDxTUBerlin 2019, Jim Baggott will share his thoughts on how we might come to terms with our own personal realities, and what we can do to protect them.
