Explore the inspiring story of Abraham Lincoln's quest for a just and lasting peace after the Civil War. This groundbreaking history delves into how Lincoln's vision inspired future presidents and famous peacemakers, including Mahatma Gandhi and Martin Luther King, Jr. Discover how Lincoln's personal example of depolarizing bitter debates and balancing moral courage with moderation continues to inspire generations today in their own quests for peace.

If you want to read a great book about a great man who was the moral leader that America desperately needed, read @JohnAvlon's moving bio of Lincoln's last weeks, and the long reach of his early death. Here's my Amazon review of it:      fuente

La teoría de juegos y la lógica del destino humano
Robert Wright
Calificación de Goodreads
In his bestselling The Moral Animal, Robert Wright applied the principles of evolutionary biology to the study of the human mind. Now Wright attempts something even more ambitious: explaining the direction of evolution and human history–and discerning where history will lead us next. In Nonzero: The Logic of Human Destiny, Wright asserts that, ever since the primordial ooze, life has followed a basic pattern. Organisms and human societies alike have grown more complex by mastering the challenges of internal cooperation. Wright's narrative ranges from fossilized bacteria to vampire bats, from stone-age villages to the World Trade Organization, uncovering such surprises as the benefits of barbarian hordes and the useful stability of feudalism. Here is history endowed with moral significance–a way of looking at our biological and cultural evolution that suggests, refreshingly, that human morality has improved over time, and that our instinct to discover meaning may itself serve a higher purpose. Insightful, witty, profound, Nonzero offers breathtaking implications for what we believe and how we adapt to technology's ongoing transformation of the world. From the Trade Paperback edition.
Jonathan Haidt
My thinking has been very influenced by @robertwrighter's book NonZero, which is just as relevant today as it was in 1999. There IS a future in which digital media gives us a far better democratic society than we have today. But it may be hard to get from here to there.      fuente

Agridulce (Bittersweet)
How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole
Susan Cain - 2022-04-05
Calificación de Goodreads
Si alguna vez te has preguntado por qué te gusta la música triste... Si encuentras consuelo o inspiración en un día lluvioso... Si reaccionas intensamente a la música, el arte, la naturaleza y la belleza... Entonces, probablemente, te identifiques con el sentimiento agridulce. Esta obra maestra es una mezcla de investigación, narración de historias y memorias que ahonda en los sentimientos de tristeza y añoranza, llegando a la conclusión de que aceptar la condición agridulce de la vida es el verdadero camino hacia la creatividad, la conexión y la trascendencia. Susan Cain demuestra que el sentimiento agridulce es la fuerza silenciosa que nos ayuda a trascender nuestro dolor personal y colectivo. Si no reconocemos nuestro propio dolor, dice, podemos terminar infligiéndolo a los demás a través del abuso, la dominación o la negligencia. Pero si nos damos cuenta de que todos los seres humanos conocen, o conocerán, la pérdida y el sufrimiento, podemos volvernos unos hacia otros. En una época de discordia y ansiedad personal, Agridulce nos une de manera profunda e inesperada.
Jonathan Haidt
A gorgeous book was published yesterday. Bittersweet, by @susancain. My blurb for it: "She takes you to a room in your own heart full of treasures that you had forgotten about. This is a book to read, feel, and savor."      fuente

Let's Be Reasonable
A Conservative Case for Liberal Education
Jonathan Marks - 2021-02-09
Calificación de Goodreads
"Let's Be Reasonable" is a thought-provoking defense of liberal education by conservative professor, Jonathan Marks. Using the ideas of John Locke and others, Marks argues that the true purpose of college is to encourage people to be reasonable, and why the health of our democracy is at stake. He reveals why conservative nightmare visions of liberal persecution and indoctrination bear little resemblance to what actually goes on in college classrooms. This book offers a compelling case for why conservatives must not give up on higher education and shows why reason is more than just a tool for scoring political points.
Jonathan Haidt
This is a really good book, with new ideas for people on the left and the right about why universities are important and how to improve them in our polarized time. By @marksjo1      fuente
