A struggle between innovation and conservation will define the 21st century, says Charles C. Mann in The Wizard and the Prophet: Two Remarkable Scientists and Their Dueling Visions to Shape Tomorrow’s World.
In a 10-minute conversation with The Bookmonger, Mann describes the ideas of Norman Borlaug (the wizard) and William Vogt (the prophet), explains why their clash defined our era, and how studying the debates of the recent past can help us understand the future.
