  1. ‘demon haunted world’ by carl sagan is one of the greatest books–basically popular. anyone who can read, can read it. i know someone who was a grad student of sagan but i think he has lost it. carl sagan’s son is a 911truther and aids denialist (ie the us govt bombed the world trade center, and there is no connection between hiv virus and aids—make some good money saying that. i also know a professor with a PhD from an ivy college–same 1 i went 2– who says ‘bigfoot’ exists (had a letter in NYT’s on this), and he’s also a 9111truther. ). ‘chance and neccesity’ by jaques monod–famous french biochemist is another (also a bit of a trip like say galois) , bertrand russel’s ‘unpopular essays’ is in same class along with some eintein popular science. (i am sort of a fan of the whitehead theory of gravity–whithead wrote a book with russel called principia mathematica–they proved 1 +1 =2 in only 800 pages; FOM-list (martin davis, .NYU, hilbert’s 10th problem—universal diophantine sets with julia robinson and matiyasevich (sic)–russian good set theorist) has a new short proof of the fundamental proof of arithmatic. ‘confessions of a confidence man, felix krull’ by thomas mann (german witer) is where i learned biology..

    i see NYR (new york review of books) has a review of ‘must we divide history into periods’ by jacques le goff. perhaps the brain constructs the visual world, end even herstory. i may look at that video
