Humanity has learnt a vast amount about the universe, but our remarkable successes in acquiring knowledge have mainly taught us how much we still have yet to learn. For example, our current science only addresses 5% of the universe; pre-history is still being revealed; and the neurosciences of mind and brain are in their infancy. What do we know, and how do we know it? What do we now know that we don't know? And what have we learnt about the obstacles to knowing more? Grayling seeks to answer these questions across three crucial areas: science, history, and psychology.

About the author: AC Grayling is a bestselling author, polymath, and philosopher. He has written and edited over thirty books on philosophy and other subjects, including The Good Book, and Ideas That Matter.
