Most thought provoking book.
The Heretics: Adventures with the Enemies of Science by Will Storr.
With a subtitle like “Adventures with the Enemies of Science” you might think that The Heretics is a straight forward non-fiction book about amusing weirdoes. The author meets UFO spotters, new earth creationists, past life regression therapists and others who cling to ideas debunked by scientists.
But it is in fact a book about how the mind works. How we see what we want to see and ignore what we don’t. How we edit out memories to our advantage. And how we form opinions first, then seek evidence that proves them. This is a fascinating book and I would highly recommend everyone to read it.
