The Moral Animal – Robert Wright
The first book on evolutionary psychology I’ve read. I’m not sure how I feel about the author’s thesis – that most of our behaviors are based in a self-serving way. Makes you feel kind of uncomfortable at first. Although, the book does have a cool insight into psychology that I’ve never really considered. And it was interesting to read after Jung. I did like the book. I’d recommend reading it with Dawkin’s The Selfish Gene. Dawkin’s book helps explain evolution with genes as the unit of natural selection.
The Peloponnesian Wars – Thuycides (Book 2)
The war between Athens and the Peloponnesian League begins. The book is getting more awesome. I’m really enjoying reading all the speeches.
