Representing Remarkable Writers

Roman Krznaric

Roman Krznaric

Roman Krznaric is a social philosopher whose internationally bestselling books, including Empathy, The Wonderbox, and How to Find Fulfilling Work, have been published in more than 20 languages.

He is the founder of the world’s first Empathy Museum and of the digital Empathy Library, and was also a founding faculty member of The School of Life. He is a Research Fellow of the Long Now Foundation in San Francisco, and a Research Associate at the Design Against Crime Research Centre at Central Saint Martin’s college of art and design in London.

Roman is currently working on a new book, 'The Age of The Long Now: Long-Term Thinking for a Short-Term World', to be published by Rider Books/Penguin Random House. Through exploring eight visionary ways we can expand our capacity for long-term thinking, the book offers an antidote to the pathological short-termism of the modern world - the politicians who can't see beyond the next election, the businesses that can't see beyond the next quarterly report and the dopamine-driven feedback loops that keep us constantly checking our phones. Along the way it confronts the big questions, such as whether democracy is past its sell-by date, and how we can harness the power of long thinking to tackle the major challenges of our age, from climate change to wealth inequality.

 

`Brilliant. One of those rare books that forces you to ask what the hell you're doing with your life.' George Monbiot, The Guardian (Praise for Carpe Diem Regained)
