Fluke: Chance, Chaos, and Why Everything We Do Matter, 3:00pm Pavilion Arts Centrebutton--dates-and-timesDates & Times

If you could rewind your life to the very beginning and then press play, would everything turn out the same? And would you remain blind to the radically different possible world you unknowingly left behind?

In Fluke, myth-shattering social scientist Brian Klaas dives deeply into the phenomenon of random chance and the chaos it can sow, taking aim at most people’s neat and tidy storybook version of reality.

Drawing on social science, chaos theory, history, evolutionary biology, and philosophy, Brian provides a brilliantly fresh look at why things happen – all the while providing mind-bending lessons on how we can live smarter, be happier and lead more fulfilling lives.
