The Moral Animal – Robert Wright
Meant to add this one, but somehow it didn’t get added.
I would have added The Resistance by Ernesto Sabato but I can not find an English version.
A few books, such as the 48 Laws of Power, were already on my Free Man’s reading list and didn’t really fit this one, some didn’t fit either list, and some already had similar, preferable options. Macaulay, for example, seems to be a whig.
You are Not so Smart was added to the Free Man’s List under Mind.
Some asked for history and I think it would be a good addition, but I wasn’t sure where to start on this, but I found this list on Moldbug, so that sounds good:
Democracy and the Party System in the United States – Moisei Ostrogorskiy
A South-Side View of Slavery – Nehemiah Adams
The Origin of the Late War – Lunt
Here’s a couple more from the Free Man’s list:
Here’s a few more from other Mencius posts and Foseti:
True History of the American Revolution – Sydney George Fisher
The Shortest-Way With The Dissenters – Daniel Defoe
While you Slept – John T. Flynn
The Road Ahead; America’s Creeping Revolution – John T. Flynn
America’s Retreat from Victory – Joseph R. McCarthy
I think that should be enough history; if anyone has any other DE-related history books that should be read, feel free to suggest.
