For tens of thousands of years our ancestors understood the world through myths, and the pace of change was glacial. The rise of scientific understanding transformed the world within a few centuries. Why? Physicist David Deutsch proposes a subtle answer.

A really interesting talk by the author of  “The fabric of reality”, referring to scientific versus non-scientific understanding, perceptions(through myths, ritual, theological interpretations and so on).
