Siri Hustvedt – The Delusions of Certainty

Siri Hustvedt, The Delusions of Certainty, Simon & Schuster, 2016.

Thanks. After reading the book I am less deluded than when I started. I now know that Hustvedt is an educated, well-read erudite. I now know that Hustvedt doesn’t like men, information, and computers nor technology in general. I now know that singular cases are not supportive of any theoretical stance, unless it is your stance. I now know that data is always biased if takes you to a different opinion from literature mainstream.

This book is worth reading. It is engaging, informative and challenging. It contains tons of valuable references for anyone interested in studying the mind. It shows how delusional is our own perspective of ourselves. It clearly shows that humanities are not keeping apace with the evolution of the human world and keep themselves deeply bound to renaissance ideas on humans.

Read it.
