Author Jonah Lehrer is really very sorry about lying

Jonah Lehrer — wunderkind science writer, former New Yorker contributor, and plagiarizer — would like to apologize.

Or, in Lehrer’s own words, “I am the author of a book on creativity that contained several fabricated Bob Dylan quotes. I committed plagiarism on my blog, taking, without credit or citation, an entire paragraph from the blog of Christian Jarrett. I also plagiarized from myself.”

This week, Lehrer was invited by the Knight Foundation to speak. And many wondered what, exactly, he would say — or rather, how, and how often, and to whom, would he apologize?
