“Social Distancing, Reading, and Intellectual Growth In the time of Coronavirus”
While I am self-quarantining at home or practicing physical distancing, I plan to order first the new books that I do not own and second to read (them) voraciously –throughout the summer:
- “The Sword and the Shield: The Revolutionary Lives of Malcolm X and Martin Luther King Jr.” by Peniel E. Joseph
- “Begin Again: James Baldwin’s America and Its Urgent Lessons for Our Own” by Eddie S. Glaude
- “Capital and Ideology” by Thomas Piketty
- “Autochtonomies: Transnationalism, Testimony, and Transmission in the African Diaspora” by Myriam J. A. Chancy
- “In a Post-Hegelian Spirit: Philosophical Theology as Idealistic Discontent” by Gary Dorrien
- “The Enlightenment that Failed: Ideas, Revolution, and Democratic Defeat, 1748-1830” by Jonathan I. Israel
