Courage is contagious

October 4, 2013

Harvard’s ‘Nerd Hero’ Dr Brian Palmer makes his first public appearance at The School of Curiosity ‘End of Summer School’ following the launch of his new book 101 Historical Heroes. He’ll be with us for a whole three days and will also run a class to help you explore ‘What is happiness?”

You should come. It’s on the 23-25 October in beautiful Villefranche-sur-Mer. You can download the full prospectus here.

Brian likes to ask big questions. He’ll ask  ”What is it that fascinates us when someone risks everything to save a stranger?”, before bringing to life our bravest contemporaries and fallen friends. He suggests that their acts of courage touch the mystery of existence. And he explores why courage can sometimes be almost as contagious as fear.

We are going to be doing something quite different at The School of Curiosity. Have you got the courage to come?

Have a curious day!


Nerd hero heads for School of Curiosity

August 19, 2013

When he lectured at Harvard University he was described as a ‘Nerd Hero’, with up to 600 students queuing up to attend his lectures. Dr Brian Palmer’s popularity, enteratining and engaging style (as well as brilliant content) won him the Levenson Prize as Harvards best lecturer.

Brian loves The School of Curiosity and is coming to our ‘End of Summer School’ 23-25 October to work with us on “What is happiness, and how do we balance time and money?” It might just change the way you see the world.

As if that were not enough he’s going to regale us with stories from his latest book, 101 Historical Heroes, (with  Ola Larsmo).

If you’ve never seen this guy, believe us, he is a legend. They will be queuing around the block for him, though if you do get a ticket you’ll be interacting with him in a small class setting.

Don’t wait. The full prospectus will be released today, but you can reserve your tickets here
