Here’s a list of the books I purchased from Amazon during 2011 and have not finished reading yet.
Betraying Spinoza: The Renegade Jew Who Gave Us Modernity by Rebecca Goldstein, 9-Feb, read 172 pages out 0f 263. I was having difficulty following her. Should restart at the beginning.
Beware Invisible Cows: My Search for the Soul of the Universe by Andy Martin, 17-Feb, read 78 pages out of 303. This was fun but I’ll need to refresh myself on it before I continue.
God, Chance & Necessity by Keith Ward, 11-Apr, read 84 pages out of 204. Not sure I was following him, but was intrigued.
Uncommon Gratitude: Alleluia for All That Is by Joan Chittister and Rowan Williams, 12-Apr, no placemark, might have read a few selections. Was curious about Rowan Williams.
Science and Religion: A New Introduction by Alister E. McGrath, 1-May, read 80 pages out of 204. Fairly straightforward but not clear what he’s leading to.
Post-Secular Philosophy: between philosophy and theology edited by Phillip Brand, 3-May, no placemark, extremely difficult going. It was maddening trying to read this.
Lost in the Cosmos: The Last Self-Help Book by Walker Percy, 17-May, read 150 pages out of 262. This was fun but I think I became saturated. Must take it up again.
23 Things They Don’t Tell You About Capitalism by Ha-Joon Chang, 27-Jun, read 17 pages out of 263. This is excellent. I could learn a lot if I would continue.
New Proofs for the Existence of God: Contributions of Contemporary Physics and Philosophy by Robert J. Spitzer, 18-Jul, skipped around and read several chapters of the 291 pages. Tries to combine modern physics and Thomas Aquinas. Tried hard to follow proofs.
The Master and His Emissary: The Divided Brain and the Making of the Western World by Iain McGilchrist, 9-Aug, read 44 pages out of 461. I’m on this now. Fascinating treatment of the right and left sides of the brain and how predominant the right half is.
I learned about several of these books from reading Psybertron, a blog which I always consult for the latest meta insights on joining the dots.
Am I having fun yet?
