Hello philosophers. Welcome to the most sporadic and inconsistent weekly round-up on the internet. Happy Philosopher’s Weekend Reading is a collection of great material I’ve stumbled upon and feel compelled to share with you.
Derek Sivers is one of my favorite writers. He writes infrequently, but it is usually something different and thought provoking. His take on parenting is an interesting one and worth reading.
On the darker side is this fascinating article on childhood psychopathy. I’m fascinated by personality and how the interplay between genetics and environment forms who we are. This one might scare you.
This next one is a wonderful read on the backfire effect, and why we tend to believe different things based on how they make us feel, not necessarily how true they are.
And finally, this is simply the best thing I’ve ever read about depression.
Short and sweet this week. Enjoy your weekend 🙂
