I’ve seen a lot of great accounts on Twitter, and Instagram that write weekly book reviews, but they tend to focus on fiction. There are so many fascinating books on science and philosophy that expose mind-bending ideas and truths about our world, so I thought it would be an idea to start writing some reviews of them!
I read a lot, and my shelf is home to books on a wide range of topics, from theoretical physics and mathematics, to evolutionary history and apologetics. I’ve learned many new and interesting things from books, and I’d love to share some of the best books I’ve read and the most intriguing ideas I’ve encountered.
In this new feature, which I’ve called “Plato’s Library”, I will aim to read a new scientific/philosophical book each week, and then write a short review sharing some of the most interesting new ideas I discover.
First up, is a “Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar…” a book that attempts to introduce the reader to a selection of philosophical topics through jokes and amusing anecdotes. I thought it was only appropriate to christen Plato’s Library with a book named after the man himself!
