Replying to LO3420 --

I'm delighted that John Warfield entered his own book. In case
anybody thinks there's too much hubris in that, I would put that book
on my list.

Given that entry, I also enter my own book "The Intelligence
Advantage: Organising for Complexity". I am saying this as a reader
rather than an author.

Here's some that were important to me that I don't remember seeing so

A pattern Language by Alexander
Unfathomed Knowledge, Unmeasured Wealth by Bartley
Boulwarism By Boulware
Grammatical Man by Campbell
Being In The World by Dreyfus
Science and Sanity by Korzybski
Passage to a Human World by Singer
Claude Elwood Shannon Collected Papers
Biochemical Individuality by Williams
Human Action by Ludwig von Mises
The Crack in the Cosmic Egg by Joseph Chilton Pierce
The Construction of Social Reality by Berger and Luckman
Inventing Reality by Gregory
The Six Pillars of Self Esteem by Nathaniel Brandon
The Tree of Knowledge by Maturana & Varela

The combination of interpretive philosophy, complexity theory and
Austrian economics provides a powerful social understanding.
