Boydstun Posted May 2 Report Share Posted May 2 Measuring Civilization (by Jay Friedenberg and other bright lights) I think the Morris book he takes up is THE MEASURE OF CIVILIZATION: HOW SOCIAL DEVELOPMENT DECIDES THE FATE OF NATIONS. Jay is a friend of mine. Another friend David Potts has introduced me to the thought of Joseph Henrich, whose book THE WEIRDEST PEOPLE IN THE WORLD – HOW THE WEST BECAME PSYCHOLOGICALLY PECULIAR AND PARTICULARLY PROSPEROUS complements the one by Ian Morris.
