IN THIS SUMMARY

For almost two centuries, both the physical and social sciences have focused on averagarian thinking—the notion that people and systems can be measured, evaluated, and managed based on the concept of the average human. Our educational systems, our workplaces, and even the way we think about each other have aligned with this notion at great expense to individuals and society. In The End of Average, Todd Rose examines the context behind averagarianism, shares how damaging it can be, and proposes a whole-hearted and societal-wide embracing of respect for the individual as the motivating factor behind all that we do.
