Brave Thinkers by
The Atlantic, November 2009

For more than 150 years, the Atlantic has told the stories of people who commit acts of moral and intellectual bravery by espousing unpopular or controversial positions. In a special issue of the magazine, the editors have chosen 27 leaders--from business and politics to science and media--who embody this great tradition today. These are people who are risking careers, reputations, and fortunes to advance ideas that upend an established order.
