The ten speakers were Sendhil Mullainathan, June Gruber, Fiery Cushman, Rob Kurzban, Nicholas Christakis, Joshua Greene, Laurie Santos, Joshua Knobe, David Pizarro, Daniel C. Dennett. Also participating were Daniel Kahneman, Anne Treisman, Jennifer Jacquet.   We asked the speakers to address the following questions: What's new in your field of social science in the last year or two, and why should we care? Why do we want or need to know about it? How does it change our view of human nature? We also asked them to focus broadly and address the major developments in their field which included, but was not limited to, their own research agenda. The goal: fresh, up-to-date, and srcinal field reports on different areas of social science. HeadCon '13: WHAT'S NEW IN SOCIAL SCIENCE  was also an experiment in online video designed to capture the dynamic of an Edge seminar, focusing on the interaction of ideas, and of people. The documentary film-maker Jason Wishnow , the pioneer of TED Talks during his tenure as director of film and video at TED (2006-2012), helped us develop this new iteration of Edge Video, filming the ten sessions in split-screen with five cameras, presenting each speaker and the surrounding participants from multiple simultaneous camera perspectives. We are now pleased to present the program in its entirety , nearly six hours of Edge Video and a downloadable PDF of the 58,000-word manuscript. The great biologist Ernst Mayr (the Darwin of the 20th Century ) once said to me: Edge is a conversation. And like any conversation, it evolves. And what a conversation it is!
