HOW TO THINK: A GUIDE FOR THE PERPLEXED
by Alan Jacobs
published by Profile Books

*

To think independently of other human beings is impossible, and if it were possible it would undesirable. Thinking is necessarily thoroughly, and wonderfully social. Everything you think is a response to what someone else has thought and said. When people commend someone for 'thinking for herself' they usually mean ceasing to sound like people I dislike and starting to sound more like people I approve of'. 

'I disagree passionately with Alan Jacobs about a number of very important things but this indispensable book shows me how to take him by the hand while we argue, rather than the throat. in troublingly stupid times, it offers a toolbox for the restoration of nuance, self-knowledge and cognitive generosity.' - Francis Spufford, author of Golden Hill
