Atlas Hugged and Our Moment of Choice, with Kurt Johnson

NOW LIVE!: Kurt Johnson wears many hats–a distinguished evolutionary biologist, a leader of the Interspiritual Movement, an authority on the scientific career of the novelist Vladimir Nabokov, and most recently co-author of the anthology Our Moment of Choice: Evolutionary Visions and Hope for the Future. It was Kurt who introduced me to the Interspiritual Movement and who I invited to join me on my visit to converse with H.H. Dalai Lama last year.

In this podcast, we discuss how Atlas Hugged adds to transformative change efforts in the real world (go here).

“A response, and counterproposal, to Ayn Rand’s controversial worldview from a celebrated scientist–in the form of a sequel to her own novel–would be big news. And this is it.”

“This is an incredibly ambitious novel from one of the finest scientific minds on the planet–who just happens to be the son of the great American novelist Sloan Wilson. The goal of Atlas Hugged is nothing short of changing the world by uniting humanity and eliminating suffering. As a reimagined sequel of sorts to Ayn Rand’s famous and influential novel Atlas Shrugged, Wilson’s work is similarly full of philosophical ideas and illustrative parables. It’s didactic in the best sense of that word”
