Here it is, our regular Friday diet of suggested readings for the weekend:
It’s an increasingly unequal world. But it doesn’t have to be. As the difference between Europe and the US clearly shows.
The symptoms of dying. Be prepared.
Smart people do foolish things. Good critical thinkers, not so much.
Steven Pinker may be wrong about decreasing violence in society. It may be the result of a scaling artifact.
RNA world or not, we’ll probably never know exactly how life originated on Earth.
Please notice that the duration of the comments window is three days (including publication day), and that comments are moderated for relevance (to the post one is allegedly commenting on), redundancy (not good), and tone (constructive is what we aim for). This applies to both the suggested readings and the regular posts. Also, keep ‘em short, this is a comments section, not your own blog. Thanks!
