Alain Badiou recently wrote this article on Hegel's master/slave dialectic, but did so asking the question as to it's relation to real slavery. It answers the question quite nicely while also providing an extremely clear reading of Hegel's argument.

Frederick Beiser also wrote a book on Hegel (there are ways to get the PDF version of this if you look in the right places) that is clear and does a good job dispelling the common misreadings of Hegel.

Peter Singer's Very Short Introduction to Hegel (again, available as a PDF in the right places) is also extremely clear and well written.

If you're serious about reading Hegel, pick yourself up a copy of Phenomenology of Spirit and read through it with Gregory Sadler's Lecture series. He goes through paragraph by paragraph explaining the whole text. He's extremely engaging and extremely insightful.

If you can't get enough Hegel and you want to go all in, I'd recommend The Hegel Variations by Fredric Jameson, Hegel: Three Studies by Theodore Adorno, and Less Than Nothing by some Slovenian guy.

Sorry if that's overkill, hope it helps!

first thanks a lot, great comment. since it's obvious you are increadibly knowledgeable, i want to ask you a question: isn't the multiverse theory basicly a response to books like

that basicly says that the fact that we live in an inhabitable world in no shorter than a miracle? doesn't this theory try to explain in scientific way the unprobability of our very existence?

What John is essentially talking about here is Neoliberalism. If anyone is interested in learning more, David Harvey has a fantastic introductory book called A Brief History of Neoliberalism. Our current economic develop trajectory began in the 1970s and is increasingly creating these enticing investment opportunities for corporations at the expense of the masses. Whether you're liberal, conservative, republication etc., your government has been economically neoliberal for the past 45 years.

allow me to make such a recommendation! Ever since my Lit. teacher had me read "How to read literature like a professor" as summer reading, my entire ability to interpret novels on a deeper level--and not just novels, but lots of other media--was changed for the better

I like authors who kind of adopt the Edgar Allan Poe method of writing: don't mention the thing unless it adds to the story

Interesting. I hadn't heard of The School of Life, but I took a low-level college philosophy class and one of the required books was The Consolations of Philosophy by de Botton. I would definitely describe it as very light reading.

That anti-capitalist notebook is hilarious.

I'm currently reading a great book, Flash Boys , that goes into this. It's actually what got me researching and coming across this video. People were/are making millions from having this competitive edge, paying tens of millions to save literal nanoseconds.

I too am an outsider, and have no formal education/experience in the stock-market but this stuff is just so interesting!

As someone who understands the tech side well (computer science, complex adaptive systems, and robotics background) and the economics side poorly, I still disagree with the economist in this video.

I really do think this time automation is different. Eventually, every basic human need will be completely automated. Many typically "thinking" jobs will be automated such as the financial, design, and marketing industries. Researchers have already developed algorithms to "repair" minor problems in software, make art that people find enjoyable, and engineer structures.

People truly underestimate how much better a computer is at many tasks. They aren't just faster - they are unbiased, objective thinkers. People think that they can't figure out certain "unmeasurable" things, but we know that's not true: How to Measure Anything

We can't predict how humanity will respond well enough, but I don't think most people understand the scale to which computers are already impacting their lives, let alone how they will in the near future.

My personal prediction is this will be countered by a shrinking population, increased standard of living (eventually), and increased demand on nonessentials like the arts.

I love reading and hearing about model cities. Here's some other media if you like this sort of stuff.


One of the most engrossing biographies I've ever read, The Power Broker: Robert Moses and the Fall of New York is the story of a power hungry paperclip maximizer but instead of prioritizing paperclips over everything, Moses prioritizes wildly expensive highways. His fall, around the late 60s, lead to renewed interest in public transit and a counter-revolution articulated in Jane Jacobs' The Death and Life of Great American Cities.

Seeing Like a State A condemnation on the central planners infatuation with the top-down and observable over the bottom-up and functional.


Reports of the death of China's vacant cities may be [greatly exaggerated.](

Seeing Like A State: Book Review A fun review of the book mentioned above.


Every city planner has a plan until they get doused with a squatter's bucket of piss.

For those further interested in charter cities, see recently-ousted world bank chief economist Paul Romer's conversation on charter cities.

If UX and design piques your interests, Design of Everyday Things is a great book on the subject. Even if you don't ever planning on designin anything it gives you perspective to see things around you in new ways.

I love this stuff. For anyone interested in surprising statistical analysis of a sport check out The Numbers Game: Why Everything You Know About Soccer Is Wrong by Chris Anderson.

This is a really fascinating era. There's a book I've been meaning to read about this time period: 1177 BC: The Year Civilization Collapsed

This book. It had a list of all ships ever built and brief history about each one.
