READING: Age of Discovery

  • BooksActually 9 Yong Siak Street Singapore, 168645 Singapore

BooksActually presents a one-night only exclusive: Chris Kutarna will be coming down to BooksActually to discuss his book, Age of Discovery

In Age of Discovery, Ian Goldin and Chris Kutarna show how we can draw courage, wisdom and inspiration from the days of Michelangelo and Leonardo da Vinci in order to fashion our own Golden Age. Whether we’re seized by Gutenberg or Zuckerberg, the discovery of the Americas or the rise of China, copperplate etchings or silicon chips, the Bonfire of the Vanities or the destructive fury of ISIS, the spread of syphilis or the Ebola pandemic, this Renaissance moment dares humanity to give its best just when the stakes are at their highest.

Turning the spotlight on the crises of our time, Age of Discovery shows how we can all define and create a lasting legacy that the world will still celebrate 500 years from now.

Ian Goldin is Director of the Oxford Martin School and Professor of Globalisation and Development at the University of Oxford; Chris Kutarna is a two-time Governor General’s Medallist, a Sauvé Fellow and Commonwealth Scholar, and a Fellow of the Oxford Martin School with a doctorate in politics from the University of Oxford.
