“Curious Minds: The Power of Connection” a book by Dani S. Bassett and Perry Zurn. Join us for a conversation with the authors, hosted by Alan Flurry.

Philosopher Perry Zurn and Physicist Dani Bassett are identical twins who build on insights from their respective fields, as well as from neuroscience, history, education, network science, and art, to explore what it means to be curious and what role human connection plays in curiosity. Their thought-provoking book delves into the profound impact of human connection on our minds and lives.
