Each year, John Brockman, publisher of Edge. org—” The world’s smartest website” (The Guardian) challenges some of the world’s greatest scientists, artists and philosophers to answer a provocative question crucial to our time.

•Nina Jablonski argues to rid ourselves of the concept of race
•Alan Guth rethinks the origins of the universe
•Hans Ulrich Obrist warns against glorifying unlimited economic growth
