19th Selected Links

Some links to things I've been reading or watching that you might also enjoy:

1. Bertrand Russell is the Pope.

2. Frank Ramsey's Critical Notice of Wittgenstein's Tractatus, published in 1923. (The year before, a 19-year-old Ramsey had translated the Tractatus from German to English.)

3. A short video excerpt from John Kerry's 1971 speech against the Vietnam war. (Full transcript here.)

4. 'The Evolution of Reciprocal Altruism', Robert Trivers' classic 1971 paper.

5. Nassim Taleb breaks down the concept of standard deviation.
