Overview

This is a compilation of twelve lectures on the essence of man and life by Jeong Jaeseung, Korea's top neuroscientist.

Book Intro

This is the latest work by Professor Jeong Jaeseung of KAIST, who garnered attention by conveying exciting and clear scientific insights through popular television programs The Dictionary Of Useless Knowledge and Differential Class. It is Jeong's highly-anticipated first solo book published 17 years after Science Concert, a book that was beloved by many and described as having "changed the level of Korean cultural science" (Lee Jungmo, Director of Seoul Science Center). Twelve Walks is a compilation of twelve of Jeong's lectures from the past ten years that have received the most enthusiastic responses from the audience, personally selected and supplemented with updated information. It includes an assortment of scientific wisdom in preparation of the dawn of a new world, covering a wide range of topics from cures to indecisiveness to attitudes towards the Fourth Industrial Revolution (4IR).

The book is full of neuroscientific insights for the youths as well as leaders of Korea struggling daily for better choices and a better future. It turns conventional thought and wisdom on its head, connects facts and knowledge that are seemingly unrelated, and changes cold science and introspective intellect into life insights.

What goes on in the brains of creative people? How can neuroscience bring about better choices and decision-making? How will we discover new opportunities in the era of 4IR? Is there any advice for humanity who will live in the AI age? In the face of ever-changing times and life challenges, Jeong presents new questions and explores the answers with the readers. In turn, readers will be able to take a magnificent journey of exploration through a vast universe of humanity and a world that is yet to come.
