波兰苏格拉底之死

莱谢克·柯拉柯夫斯基便是其中之一,他是一位全球知名的哲学家,在牛津、耶鲁和芝加哥等优秀学府担任教授,并为其全世界的同行们所敬仰。他的著作涉及斯宾诺莎、十七世纪荷兰的神学争论以及其他深奥的主题。

    Populist Plutocracy and the Future of America

    • Sooner or later, Trump's core supporters will wake up to this fact, so it is worth asking how far he might go to keep them on his side.

    The Man Who Didn’t Save the World

    A Saudi prince has been revealed to be the buyer of Leonardo da Vinci's "Salvator Mundi," for which he spent $450.3 million. Had he given the money to the poor, as the subject of the painting instructed another rich man, he could have restored eyesight to nine million people, or enabled 13 million families to grow 50% more food.

    Two Myths About Automation

    While many people believe that technological progress and job destruction are accelerating dramatically, there is no evidence of either trend.
