Would you listen to 12 Essential Scientific Concepts again? Why?
Have you listened to any of Professor Indre Viskontas’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Yes - I'm a fan of her podcast, Inquiring Minds
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
The last two lectures on emergence
Any additional comments?
Professor Indre Viskontas provides a deft overview of 12 major science concepts, ranging from the macro - the creation of the universe, principles of physics and black holes to the micro - the human neuron and quantum mechanics. She communicates her excitement for the subject matter throughout, while acknowledging the limitations of current science and potential for future advancement.
The final two lectures, on the new science of emergence, were particularly fascinating to me, as it was a completely new topic to me, unlike some of the others.
The only flaws in the recording were a few missed edit points in later lectures - one line repeated twice.

Professor Indre Viskontas did a better job explaining the hard aspects of scientific thought than any other I have listened to. Great job Professor.

I look forward to revisiting these lectures soon after further background reading. I would definitely recommend.
I love every sentence of the book.
It is inspiring, educative, and fascinating. I would love to read more of the like.
