Read full description of the books:
What was more interesting than the essays themselves, were the various ways in which these scientists and academics – by the very nature of their pursuits more fluent in the language and concepts of evidence, proof, belief, doubt, and faith than your everyday average person – deconstructed the question and reframed it in an answerable way.
THAT was the cool thing about this collection.
Mostly a mixed bag, but there were also several really great short essays. Particularly those by Scott Altran, Sam Harris, Seth Lloyd, Alison Gopnik, Esther Dyson, Jean Paul Schmetz, Nasim Nicholas Taleb, Carlo Rovelli, Kai Krause, and Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi.
