  •  Jaynes would be controversial - suggestions (6+ / 0-)

    Beem years and years since I read that one.  Thought it was pretty much discredited - will have to do some research (that's not a statement of fact - pls correct me if I'm wrong).

    I thought Guns, Germs and Steel was terrible, interesting idea, but too much trivialization of the history.

    Thinking about Hofstadter and Jaynes, you could add something by Daniel Dennet or John Searle.

    There's nothing wrong with finishing GEB either.
