    What If We're Wrong? With Chuck Klosterman, Moderated by Journalist Mark Caro

    How certain are we about gravity? What will we be considered the defining moment in rock music five hundred years from now? How seriously should we take what happens in our dreams? Have we reached the end of knowledge? Every generation assumes that what we’ve defined and accepted is pretty close to how reality will be viewed forever. But what if we’re wrong? Time passes. Ideas shift. Opinions invert. What once seemed reasonable eventually becomes absurd, replaced by modern perspectives that feel even more irrefutable and secure—until, of course, they don’t.


    What to expect: Journalist Marc Caro talks with Best-selling author Chuck Klosterman, who brings these questions to the Chicago Ideas stage with his implausible book about the things we cannot know, explained as if we did. It’s about how we live now, once “now” has become “then.”
