1. The Sixth Extinction

There is something almost literary about the process of understanding deep history. There is, above all, the business of being able to read correctly what the different layers of rock and sediment tell us about life on Earth. There is the business of being able to read the signs around us of the living record, and to learn to think in the long, rather than short term. It is instructive to discover that we can date the concept of extinction to the year: 1795, when Georges Cuvier examined some recently removed mastodon bones from the graves and realised that the concept of a divinely ordered animal kingdom was invalid, and that species could be lost forever. It would seem now, though, that the panic is entirely down to us.

This is a book about that much-maligned, much-misunderstood generation coming up behind the slackers, who are being intelligent and active about the world in which they find themselves. It is a world in which all that is ‘alternative’ is sold, where any innovation or subversion is immediately adopted by un-radical, faceless corporations. But, gradually, tentatively, a new generation is beginning to fight consumerism with its own best weapons; and it is the first skirmish in this war that this abrasively intelligent book documents brilliantly.

The million copy international bestseller, critically acclaimed and translated into over 25 languages.

As influential today as when it was first published, The Selfish Gene has become a classic exposition of evolutionary thought.

Forty years later, its insights remain as relevant today as on the day it was published.

Ariel” depicts a woman riding her horse in the countryside, at the very break of dawn. It details the ecstasy and personal transformation that occurs through the experience. The poem begins with complete immobility in the darkness, while the rider waits on the horse. There is then a change – the intangible blue of hills and distances come into being. The rider is “God’s lioness;” she experiences the sensation of becoming one with her horse in a powerful entangling of knees and heels. The plowed field on which she rides soon splits and vanishes behind her, remaining elusive like the brown neck of her steed that she “cannot catch.”

When Betty Friedan produced The Feminine Mystique in 1963, she could not have realized how the discovery and debate of her contemporaries’ general malaise would shake up society. Victims of a false belief system, these women were following strict social convention by loyally conforming to the pretty image of the magazines, and found themselves forced to seek meaning in their lives only through a family and a home. Friedan’s controversial book about them – and every woman – would ultimately set Second Wave feminism in motion and begin the battle for equality.

And fifty years later, it still has many lessons to teach. With “The Structure of Scientific Revolutions”, Kuhn challenged long-standing linear notions of scientific progress, arguing that transformative ideas don’t arise from the day-to-day, gradual process of experimentation and data accumulation, but that revolutions in science, those breakthrough moments that disrupt accepted thinking and offer unanticipated ideas, occur outside of “normal science,” as he called it.

Why worship work and productivity if many of the goods we produce are superfluous – artificial ‘needs’ created by high-pressure advertising? Why begrudge expenditure on vital public works while ignoring waste and extravagance in the private sector of the economy? Classical economics was born in a harsh world of mass poverty, and has left us with a set of preconceptions ill-adapted to the realities of our own richer age.

His criticism on topics such as the paternalism of white progressives or on his own friend Richard Wright’s work is pointed and unabashed. He was also one of the few writing on race at the time who addressed the issue with a powerful mixture of outrage at the gross physical and political violence against black citizens and measured understanding of their oppressors, which helped awaken a white audience to the injustices under their noses.

I had heard and given lip service to the concept of the ideal mean (“The da Vinci Code”) but had not understood how it was derived until reading this book, nor did I realize that as people became more urban and modern (taller and thinner) the ideal changed, too.

Lots of information about what we don’t actually know about ancient art, which I found fascinating, like a forensic detective tale. I loved and guarded what seemed like every sacred minute of reading this book.
