We don’t usually think of intelligence having a history—let alone an evolution. We’ll take a light-speed journey from prehistory to 2020—exploring the pivotal and under-appreciated roles of Plato, Aristotle, the Catholic Church and science in shaping the story of human intelligence. Then we’ll discuss where we’re heading, future challenges and our own part in the story.

Bio: Nathan Jaye is a speaker on super intelligence, financial journalist and founder of Ziprz, a new fashion company in San Francisco. A former contributor to Investor’s Business Daily, he has interviewed dozens of thought leaders, entrepreneurs, scholars and CEOs.
In more than a decade of research, Jaye has developed an understanding of many faces of intelligence: the origins of logic in ancient Greece, the evolution of science and rational thinking, the nature of intuition, the modern science of the brain, the future of artificial intelligence and the often overlooked value of intelligence to meaning in life.
In addition, Jaye has years of experiential and meditation-based observation on the nature of thinking.
