The Master and Margarita - Mikhail Bulgakov

How The Mind Works - Steven Pinker

Machine-Esprit - Alain Prochiantz



How The Mind Works is the best introduction to Cognitive Science I have read. It should be mandatory reading for about anyone even slightly interested in the topic.

On Sep 25, 2014 - 2:39 PM, 180 Proof responded: Capital commodifies desires - drives - so relentlessly that self-repression - fascisms - is the normative - Oedipal - tendency; we resist - become schizoid/anti-Oedipal - by de-commodifying desires.

Just finished Frankenstein by Mary Shelley
On Sep 27, 2014 - 12:22 PM, 180 Proof responded: cool Thoughts?
On Sep 27, 2014 - 12:50 PM, Maw responded: Adored it. Curious that feminist Mary Shelley has a man create new life, only to immediately be horrified and abandon it. Seems to be subtly praising womanhood. nod
On Sep 27, 2014 - 12:54 PM, Maw responded: Also wondering why the monster desired the creation of a female companion despite the distress and confusion of his own being. Should have taken the anti-natalist route.
