We are addicted to prediction, desperate for certainty about the future. But the complexity of modern life won’t allow that; experts in forecasting are reluctant to look more than 400 days out. History doesn’t necessarily repeat itself, and even genetics won’t tell you everything you want to know. Margaret Heffernan joins us to discuss her new book, Uncharted, How to Navigate the Future, in which she drew on a wide array of people and places to look at long-term projects developed over generations that could never have planned for the way that they have been run.
