The human condition

adamWhy Buddhism is True by Robert Wright. Hold the metaphysics. This is about minding our minds. “With great clarity and wit, he brings together personal anecdotes with insights from cognitive science to defend an ancient world-view”.   The Rise and Fall of Adam and Eve by Stephen Greenblatt. The author explores the origins of the story that put the fear of God in man. Greenblatt “tracks Adam and Eve from  the ancient origins of their story down to their post-Darwinian persistence in our own time. Endlessly illuminating and a sheer pleasure to read.”
