We turn now to Europe, where many are concerned about the growing acceptability of anti-immigrant rhetoric and policies. Far from just being expressed by the extreme right wing, the anti-immigrant trend has entered the mainstream. German Chancellor Angela Merkel told a gathering of young members of her conservative Christian Democratic Union party this weekend that multiculturalism has utterly failed. A recent German poll found 13 percent of Germans would welcome the arrival of a new "Führer," and more than a third of Germans feel the country is "overrun by foreigners."

We dial up Professor Russell Stannard, emeritus professor of physics at the Open University. He thinks humans are fast approaching the end of what it is possible for us to know and understand. Caspar Llewellyn-Smith asks him about some of the themes in his new book, The End of Discovery.
Why is it so hard to pursue our dreams, and get started on the creative challenges that mean so much to us? How can we overcome our inner Resistance to doing the things that matter?

These are some of the questions I put to bestselling author Steven Pressfield in this fascinating audio seminar about the creative process and the life lessons he’s learned. In the course of our hour-long conversation, Steve was extremely generous with his ideas, and unflinchingly candid about some of mistakes he has made on his own journey, and what he has learned from them. He’s a terrific raconteur, using stories about his own experiences and drawing analogies with the lives and works of other creators. And the lessons he draws from them are full of hard-won wisdom.
