Having recently gone to St. Petersburg and to a cemetery there were many of Russia's great thinkers reside I began wondering what produced these people. Subsequently I came across Isaiah Berlin's book "Russian Thinkers". It seems that Russian intellectuals were born of German Romanticism. In their youth Russians were encouraged to go to Germany for education rather than France. France was considered too revolutionary in though and a bad influence. But as it turns out Germany was more revolutionary in thought.

I like many books from Reslib.com library, especially "A logical journey. From Goedel to philosophy".

I've just started Stephen Hawking & Leonard Mlodinow's "The Grand Design". It's fairly easy, bedtime reading, so far appears pitched at a fairly broad audience. The perspective appears to be atheistic, although if that's so, the title is provocative. In fact, the first page is even more provocative:
"How does the universe behave? What is the nature of reality? .... Traditionally these are questions for philosophy, but philosophy is dead. Philosophy has not kept up with modern developments in science, particularly Physics. Scientists have become the bearers of the torch of discovery in our quest for knowledge." :roll:
There's a certain irony that, having killed God, some scientists are now killing Philosophy. I'm a scientist too, and I have a sneaking suspicion that some Physicists could do with more education in philosophy!
