To replace the early and unfortunate disappearance of Diamond’s book from our lives, from next week we will be reading a new book:
Straw Dogs: Thoughts on Humans and Other Animals by John Gray.
Finally, John Gray, the contemporary political philosopher and essayist who stands against human hubris and has been fighting the prevailing ideas that the Enlightenment is a panacea -treating a certain category of thinkers as Enlightenment fundamentalists. (p. 258)
On our Blog’s comment to that chapter I wrote:
Taleb cites also some contemporary anti Enlightenment writers and ideas and I have take note of John Gray to read some of his books.
So here we are.
You can find a schedule of chapters in our Reading Calendar.
