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. Tor holds an M.Sc. in environmental planning from Roskilde University and is honorary professor in the Department of Management, Politics, and Philosophy at Copenhagen Business School.
At the second MAD Symposium, Appetite, Tor comments on how we should take inspiration from the hunter-gatherer to expand our pantry and use ingredients from the wild.
