Interesting collection. Much of the predictable “singularity” stuff, starting with Ray Kurzweil, and going through all the apps and devices taking over our lives, but some good stuff in there.
A few for me …
- The Shareholder Value Myth: How Putting Shareholders First Harms Investors, Corporations, and the Public — Lynn Stout
- The Social Conquest of Earth — E.O. Wilson
- Not For Profit: Why Democracy Needs the Humanities — Martha Nussbaum
And ironic, posting yesterday, with today’s BBC story about the Cornish school about boys learning good old fashioned manners and etiquette:
- Choosing Civility: The 25 Rules of Considerate Conduct — P.M. Forni
And a completely unconnected school story … philosophy for reception class education at a Harrow primary school – Socratic dialogue, and league tables that make no odds.
