Dear fellow memetics-list members,
I noticed you guys (haven't witnessed any girls yet, sorry to say)
are quite educated and well read, judging from the frequent
reference to books on the list. I would like to exploit this fact
by asking each one of you what your favorite books are.
That is, please cite the titles of the books you learned
the most from. Also give a brief reason why please.
The last year I've become very interested in evolutionary
theory (biology, memetics, universal), intelligence and
neuroscience and am very eager to learn about these topics.
However, I have this problem that I don't read very quickly.
This forces me to be rather picky in choosing what books to read.
So, I would appreciate it if I could tap into your experience by
learning what books were most useful to you.
The books I've read or still are reading, include:
The Meme-Machine (Blackmore)
The Selfish Gene (Dawkins)
Darwin's Dangerous Idea (Dennett)
How The Mind Works (Pinker)
The Origin Of Species (Darwin)
Thanks much in advance,
This was distributed via the memetics list associated with the
Journal of Memetics - Evolutionary Models of Information Transmission
