The Science of Liberty: Democracy, Reason, and the Laws of Nature by Timothy Ferris
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a profoundly interesting book. In it, Ferris argues that the more-or-less simultaneous rise of liberal democracy and modern science is not a coincidence: both thrive on the open exchange of ideas and an experimental spirit. If you like the history of ideas, this is the book for you.
