I’d also be happy to suggest my own books!

Bring Back Satire is a lighter philosophy book about happiness. Find more info here:

Formal Dialectics is a deep dive into how language and thought work together to shape our rationality.

And last but certainly not least, Further From Home is a collection of short stories that are light on their own but form an interesting collection of deeper thoughts when taken together.

Happy reading, and stay safe out there.
