There is also a list of books which are not recommended. These are by authors featured elsewhere on the site or deal with topics mentioned here. There will not be many of them, and they are here because I don't want to be accused of ignoring opposing points of view and, as people are going to buy them, I rather like the irony of the situation anyway.
The Trouble with Science by Robin Dunbar. The title of this book might suggest that it is anti-science, but in fact the author posits that science is a natural part of human existence (and even that of some animals) because it is about how organisms explain and interact with the world around them. The author has produced a very good summary of the philosophical path through Popper, Kuhn, Lakatos and Feyerabend, and there is commentary about the relationship between religion and science which mightn't please Richard Dawkins but which provides a credible explanation for the ubiquity of religion across societies (and which allows for religion to be abandoned when better knowledge comes along).
