The big dilemmas of the day resist resolution. For decades we have relied on economics, science and the law for answers to pressing problems. "The complexity and urgency of twenty-first century problems demand new Ways of Seeing. For decades, the humanities and social sciences have withered in the shadow of market economics and scientific rationalism. Now more than ever, we need a human-centred approach to the big dilemmas of the day, learning from literature and philosophy and drawing on the creative imagination. Philosopher and author John Armstrong argues that the value of humanities is measured by their worth and relevance outside the academy. Award-winning historian Peter Cochrane reveals the importance of historical imagination; Tanveer Ahmed explores neuroscience and policy; Leah Kaminsky reconnects the physician with the narrative. This edition also contains essays, memoir and fiction by Ian Lowe, Robyn Williams, Robert Hillman, Amanda Lohrey and Julienne van Loon,
