A few good links from today’s feeds:
- Locus Recommended Reading: 2007: Locus’ recommendations for the best science fiction and fantasy of 2007. I’ve only read two of the recommended books (The Yiddish Policemen’s Union & Brasyl) and I greatly enjoyed them.
- A Conversation with Jorge Luis Borges: A newly translated conversation with the great Argentinean fabulist. I adore Borges, so I can’t resist posting this bonus linkage to an illustrated version of The Book of Imaginary Beings and the Dictionary of Borges (.pdf warning).
- Evolutionary Psychology: This new entry in The Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy admirably summarizes the core of the theory, and the surrounding philosophical disputes, such as the massive modularity hypothesis. Still, Tooby and Cosmides’ Evolutionary Psychology: A Primer is an indispensable starting point for any one interested in EP and its many controversies.
