Activism and psychology books

I know bold plans to read and discuss The Moral Landscape did not go as smoothly as one might have hoped, interrupted by more urgent undertakings.

That said, there are a trio of books I am planning to read that may be of interest to readers of this site:

  • Alinsky, Saul. Rules for Radicals: A Pragmatic Primer for Realistic Radicals.
  • Carson, Clayborne ed. The Autobiography of Martin Luther King, Jr.
  • Pinker, Steven. The Blank Slate: The Modern Denial of Human Nature.

If anybody feels inclined to read and discuss one of them, I can make it a priority reading task for myself.

I found The Blank Slate to be excellent, and really made me change the way I think about human nature.

Based on the recommendation above, I will be glad to read The Blank Slate.

I have a lot to read on my plate already, but I might watch this documentary
