The Elephant in the Brain
“If you want to know what makes people tick, read The Elephant in the Brain. Simler and Hanson have created the most comprehensive, powerful, unified explanation of human natural behaviour to date.” — Jason Brennan, Professor of Business, Georgetown University
The Age Of EM
“This hellish cyberworld is quite cool to think about in a dystopian Matrixy way. … brilliantly weird extrapolations” – Steven Poole, The Guardian
