What can it mean to be a libertarian paternalist', a 'slacktivist' or a 'trans-humanist? How does 'peer-to-peer' surveillance differ from ordinary snooping, and where can one find a 'virtual anthropologist? When people murmur knowingly about 'the wisdom of crowds', what are they talking about?

Assaulted by a battery of buzzwords, it is easy to feel bewildered. Big Ideas explains where ubiquitous popular concepts like the tipping point', 'soft power' and

'metrosexual' come from, what they mean, and what their critics say about them.

James Harkin, a cultural commentator specialising in social trends, is the perfect guide to this fast-moving world of ideas.

His indispensable introduction is entertaining, always informative live.
