London Guardian columnist Steven Poole provides a roller-coaster ride through the history of philosophy, science and society. He pulls together millennia of ideas and reflects on their modern incarnations. His narrative is lively, enthusiastic and conversational, and the content is dense and deep. Poole leads you down paths less traveled to explore esoteric ideas rejected long ago, but now in vogue. He teases apart wide-ranging concepts before returning to the main road. Scientists, researchers, social and political activists, and programmers will enjoy his complex insights.
