Roger Antonsen:
How a Change in Your Perspective is the Gateway to Understanding

Roger Antonsen. Logician, mathematician, lecturer and public speaker.  Rated as one of Norway’s best lecturers and science communicators.

This TEDx talk by Roger Antonsen is one of the most fascinating and engaging TED talks that I have come across in recent times.  Antonsen is a brilliant communicator and in this talk he demonstrates in a unique and compelling way how changing your perspective is the key to understanding and often results in unexpected insights.

In his talk he also makes excellent use of visuals with some fabulous illustrations to bring across key points of his message.
