Risk

The Science of Fear

Based on the book by award-winning journalist Dan Gardner. What if we’ve been looking at things all wrong? What if the way we perceive risk is more suitable to our days as cavemen than as people living in the modern world? If so, humanity might be careening toward the edge of a cliff. Are we all at risk? Join Gardner as he uncovers the science of risk. His theory: our surroundings have evolved at lightening speed, yet our brains are still in the dark ages. Reactions and intuitions that would have once protected us from ancient threats now hinder us as we assess the dangers of a new world. The result? Human beings have become less and less capable of determining what is and what isn’t safe. And we’re paying for it in ways you could never imagine.
