A collection of non-sequiturs and half-arguments. It’s possible this reviewer has simply conflated knowledge with cognition, which would explain this preposterous review, but either way, this book looks like a prime example of its tenet: there’s never been a better time to be dumb – especially if you can write a book as dumb as this, safe in the knowledge that there’ll be a market of numpties ready to lap it up.

And theories underpinning that taxonomy shifted and changed may times through the medium of print.

Would Darwin have tweeted from the Beagle? I’m not so sure. To the consternation of his colleagues, Darwin kept natural selection safely sealed off from the very-robust mechanisms of communication that existed in his time. The media didn’t prevent him from parceling out his work in pieces; cultural and personal concerns did the trick. Of course these things are interrelated—but in complex feedback loops. Then as well as now.

It’s an interesting thought experiment, though, to wonder what tweeting from the Beagle would have done for natural selection. “Another crank who thinks two plus two doesn’t equal four,” many would surely have thought.

Do you have reference for Tim Berners-Lee and linking in triples? I would like to learn more about that.

The comment and the blog post makes me to think the conversation I had with one of my friend. As my friend points out it is becoming impossible and difficult to come up with a reading lists of books similar to Mortimer Adler nowadays.
