Understanding Human Behavior, Culture, and Everything through an Emergent System Lens: Consilience with Tom Beakbane [Episode 69]
This is an episode that is not to be missed. Tom Beakbane and Paul Krauss MA LPC discuss his new book How to Understand Everything: Consilience: A New Way to See the World. Tom and Paul discuss many topics including the hard science of how the body and mind interact, tribalism, culture, human behavior, communication and much more. Tom's journey to resurrect the concept of consilience began when he tried to understand why textbook explanations of human behavior did not account for the techniques routinely used by marketing communications and political operatives. Also he observed that textbook psychology did not explain the interpersonal dynamics he observed while providing services to his company’s clients. He realized that by weaving together developments on the front lines of biology, physics and computing and re-conceptualizing human behavior as an emergent system it was possible to explain the nature of understanding in ways that are all-embracing.
Tom Beakbane is president of a brand marketing company in Toronto, Canada. With an honors degree in biochemistry and neurophysiology from Durham University in England, he was puzzled by the gap between textbook theories of human behavior and his experiences creating business communications. He closed the gap by tapping into developments at the frontiers of science, explained in the just-published book How to Understand Everything. Consilience: A New Way to See the World.
