The Brain

This topic (and Science) are very much a continuation of Philosophy. It’s extending those basic ideas into the very relevant topic of the mind.

To start we need a foundational definition of consciousness because it’s the longest standing question of the mind (going back before science was given a name). Hofstadter is where you’ll find it.

Next I would go to Copies because it’s an intriguing, hopeful and yet possibly terrifying extension of that definition.

Sight Dominance and Drugs explore the limits and biases of the mind. It’s always important to see the barriers.

Finally, the darker parts of the mind: Memetics and it’s immediate follow up, Understanding Fanatics.
