“He who cannot draw on three thousand years is living from hand to mouth,” Goethe famously proclaimed. Thomas Hobbes extolled “the principal and proper work of history being to instruct, and enable men by the knowledge of actions past to bear themselves prudently in the present and providently in the future.” It is this notion of “applied history” that cultural historian and philosopher Roman Krznaric — who gave us How to Find Fulfilling Work, one of the best psychology and philosophy books of 2013 — places at the center of How Should We Live?

Cognitive psychology : a student's handbook (Book, 2010. "This is an excellent textbook, the previous editions of which I have consistently recommended to students on advanced courses in human cognition.
This new edition has reinforced my view that this is the best textbook on advanced undergraduate cognitive psychology available to support student learning... The introductory chapter providing explanatory overviews is particularly helpful, and I very much welcome the increase in cognitive neuroscience elements throughout the chapters.
