Напомните книжку, из которой я вспомнил следующий эпизод: гуляет человек по руинам города, обнаруживает, что улица покрыта всё более толстым слоем раздавленных людей, пытавшихся протолкнуться к дыре в земле, ведущей их к спасению.

The Self Illusion миленькая, но не вставляет совсем и не говорит ничего сильно нового для меня. Похоже, пора прекратить читать научпоп по нейрофизиологии.

"Mum," Harry said. "If you want to win this argument with Dad, look in chapter two of the first book of the Feynman Lectures on Physics. There's a quote there about how philosophers say a great deal about what science absolutely requires, and it is all wrong, because the only rule in science is that the final arbiter is observation — that you just have to look at the world and report what you see. Um... off the top of my head I can't think of where to find something about how it's an ideal of science to settle things by experiment instead of arguments -"

His mother looked down at him and smiled. "Thank you, Harry. But -" her head rose back up to stare at her husband. "I don't want to win an argument with your father. I want my husband to, to listen to his wife who loves him, and trust her just this once -"

Harry closed his eyes briefly. Hopeless. Both of his parents were just hopeless.

Now his parents were getting into one of those arguments again, one where his mother tried to make his father feel guilty, and his father tried to make his mother feel stupid."Mum," Harry said.

TiHKAL унылее. Шура несёт море фанатичной пурги про травы и злой DEA. Алису с её психотерапией я бы почитал моар.
Теперь шатаюсь в выборе между "Willpower Instinct", "Chaos & Cyber Culture", "Zen Mind, Beginner's Mind", "Thinking, Fast and Slow" и "Когнитивная эволюция и творчество".
