Why do civilizations rise and fall? 
What are the origins and purpose of art? 
How does technology shape society? 
Did culture direct human evolution? 
Is the Internet an agent of democracy or dictatorships? 

An immensely powerful but little-understood force that impacts society, art, politics, and even human biological development, culture is the very stage on which human experience plays out. But what is it, exactly. 

What are its rules and origins In this fascinating volume, John Brockman, editor and publisher of Edge, presents short, accessible explorations of culture’s essential aspects, by today’s most influential scientists and thinkers. 

Contributors and topics include: 
Jared Diamond - Why societies collapse and how we can make better decisions to protect our own future?
Denis Dutton - The origins of art 
Daniel C. Dennett - The evolution of cultures 
Jaron Lanier - The ominous impact of the Internet 
Nicholas Christakis - The structure and rules of social networks, both “real” and online
Clay Shirky and Evgeny Morozov - The new political reality of the digital era 
Brian Eno - What cultures value?
Stewart Brand - The responsibilities of human power 
Douglas Rushkoff - The next Renaissance 
W. Daniel Hillis - The Net as a global “knowledge web”
