People in the past sure loved reminding themselves of their inevitable demise. This week, a little excursion into the art of the memento mori.

    Servius Tullius was touched by fire in more ways than one.

    First was his conception (rumour has it that his mother was impregnated by a phantom phallus that appeared in a fire). Then as a child, he was seen wreathed in flame while sleeping. This was interpreted by the queen, Tanaquil, to mean that Servius was destined for great things and must be protected at all costs.

    Hot stuff from Rome’s sixth king!

    Work: A Deep History, from the Stone Age to the Age of Robots

    A revolutionary new history of humankind through the prism of work by leading anthropologist James Suzman.

    Work defines who we are. It determines our status, and dictates how, where, and with whom we spend most of our time. It mediates our self-worth and molds our values. But are we hard-wired to work as hard as we do?

    Visionary book, Unmasking AI, & commentary from Dr. Joy Buolamwini on AI & amplifying inequalities!

    "With the adoption of AI systems, at first I thought we were looking at a mirror, but now I believe we're looking into a kaleidoscope of distortion," Buolamwini says. "Because the technologies we believe to be bringing us into the future are actually taking us back from the progress already made."

    Virtue Politics: Soulcraft and Statecraft in Renaissance Italy

    A bold, revisionist account of the political thought of the Italian Renaissance―from Petrarch to Machiavelli―that reveals the all-important role of character in shaping society, both in citizens and in their leaders.

    Universal History and the Telos of Human Progress: How History Is Made

    For the first time ever, all the historians who have written world history textbooks for students or the general public since the beginning of Western civilization have been brought together. The goal: to ascertain the meaning they found in the whole human story.

    "It is worth getting inside Trump’s head a bit and imagining his mood following an election victory. He will have spent the previous year, and more, fighting to stay out of jail, plagued by myriad persecutors and helpless to do what he likes to do best: exact revenge. Think of the fury that will have built up inside him, a fury that, from his point of view, he has worked hard to contain. ..."

    Why do people believe that Trump’s revenge would not be like proscriptions of Marius or Sulla, but with the power of the surveillance state and tactical precision of drones?
