I try to read as many books as possible when I’m not working (currently it’s David Hume’s A Treatise of Human Nature), but a lot of the time, all I have time for are work-related articles. Many are a little on the dry side, but every once in a while, come across new topics or ideas that are really interesting or even enlightening. I usually tell P about them, but recently was inspired by the idea of sharing some of them with you. So, here’s a new series of Talking Points, that is, ideas that I’ve come across that I think you might be interested in hearing about. This edition covers the concepts of ataraxia, interoception, and rational thinking.
