Anbefalt læring

Jeg har lovet en oppdatert anbefalingsliste med diverse læringsmuligheter. Mot verdenshistoriens største tenkere, som har skrevet gode bøker om alle mulige slags tema, er våre egne ideer og tanker veldig lite verdt dersom vi starter fra bunnen av. Derfor burde det vært obligatorisk å lese seg opp før man entrer slike diskusjoner på et høyere nivå. Folk som bruker mesteparten av sin tid på nettforum, kommentarfelt og Youtube, og ikke prioriterer å pløye gjennom grunnleggende bøker, gjør gjerne ethvert forsøk på en innholdsrik diskusjon vanskelig. Der vil jeg starte med å anbefale Harry Frankfurt med den herlige lille håndboka On Bullshit.

Bøker har dessuten den fordelen av å kunne fortelle historier fra A til Å, og er ikke begrenset til få tegn i oppsummerende format. Så her er en oppdatert liste med lesverdig innhold, alfabetisk ordnet etter fornavn, fra både kristne og ateister. For mer info, kan du trykke på linkene. Overskriftene er noe glidende, men utgjør en grov oversikt:
