Reading Suggestions: No Man’s Sky, Animals and Philip Kitcher

Peter Suderman wrote a great article about the videogame No Man’s Sky. That is how media journalism should be. Not just stating facts of the game and rate them but put them in the context of our social, scientific and ideological world.

Alva Noë reviews Jane C. Desmond‘s “Displaying Death and Animating Life. Human-Animal Relations in Art, Science, and Everyday Life”. Why do we love some animals more than others?

Philosophy should not be stuck in the philosophical institutions in universities. Philip Kitcher is a great example of a great allround philosopher.
