From Wild to Tame and Back Again

Tor Nørretranders is a Danish author of non-fiction and popular science. His books and lectures have primarily been focused on science and its role in society, often with his own advice about how society should integrate new findings in science.

Tor has published twenty books and been translated into ten languages. His best-known books are on consciousness (the User Illusion, 1999) and creativity (the Generous Man, 2005), but he has dealt with many other issues such as network technology, the environment, quantum mechanics, joy and children’s questions about the world. He holds a M.Sc. in environmental planning from Roskilde University and is honorary professor in the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy at Copenhagen Business School.
