Here it is, our regular Friday diet of suggested readings for the weekend:
Character is important, crucial, even. And yet, we still don’t understand much about it.
The only way to keep your resolutions? A bit simplistic of a separation between reason and emotions, but worth a read.
The millennia of “me too” in Mary Beard’s Women and Power.
The meaning of belief and the definition of religion.
Why Foucault’s work on power is more important than ever.
No depression isn’t caused by a “chemical imbalance” in the brain. In fact, we have little idea of what causes it.
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!
