If you're searching for book recommendations, here are a couple I've finished over the past few weeks that were great. Klosterman's 'But What If We're Wrong?' tries to imagine what people in the future will say about our current age in light of the fact that human knowledge is always changing. It's full of great thought experiments and really forces you to embrace epistemological humility. Haidt's The Righteous Mind' takes a look through evolutionary psychology at how (in the US) conservatives and liberals build and function within different moral matrices.
