    Our ability to remake our world is unique among all living things. But where does our creativity come from, how does it work, and how can we harness it to improve our lives, schools, businesses, and institutions? The Runaway Species is a deep-dive into the creative mind, a celebration of the human spirit, and a vision of how we can improve our future by understanding and embracing our ability to innovate. Composer Anthony Brandt and neurologist David Eagleman seek to discover what lies at the heart of humanity's ability - and drive - to create.

    After the triumphant end of the Napoleonic Wars in 1815, the British took it upon themselves to complete something they had been trying to do since the 16th century: find the fabled Northwest Passage, a shortcut to the Orient via a sea route over northern Canada. For the next 35 years the British Admiralty sent out expedition after expedition to probe the ice-bound waters of the Canadian Arctic in search of a route, and then, after 1845, to find missing explorer Sir John Franklin.

    Our relentless drive to create makes us unique among living creatures. What is special about the human brain that enables us to innovate? Why don't cows choreograph dances? Why don't squirrels build elevators to their treetops? Why don't alligators invent speedboats? Weaving together the arts and sciences, neuroscientist David Eagleman and composer Anthony Brandt explore the need for novelty, the simulation of possible futures, and the social components that drive the inventiveness of our species.

    Der weltbekannte Hirnforscher David Eagleman und sein Freund, der Komponist Anthony Brandt, widmen sich in ihrem Hörbuch der Frage, wie das kreative Neue entsteht. Dabei blicken sie auf die kreative Software des Gehirns: Wie funktioniert sie? Was machen wir damit? Wohin führt sie uns? Es erweist sich, dass der kreative Prozess vor allem von drei Fähigkeiten des Gehirns abhängt: Biegung, Brechung und Verbindung. An vielen Beispielen, von der Raumfahrt über die Wirtschaft und die Kunst bis zum Sport, demonstrieren die Autoren, wie unser Denken die Welt immer wieder neu erschafft.
