On June 1, Luke Burgis' book Wanting is released.
The book explains why we want what we want, drawing on the ideas of French polymath René Girard:
"Human desire is mimetic―we imitate what other people want. This affects the way we choose partners, friends, careers, clothes, and vacation destinations. Mimetic desire is responsible for the formation of our very identities. It explains the enduring relevance of Shakespeare’s plays, why Peter Thiel decided to be the first investor in Facebook, and why our world is growing more divided as it becomes more connected."
"A finite game is played for the purpose of winning, an infinite game for the purpose of continuing the play." — James P. Carse (Finite and Infinite Games)
Not too long ago, if you'd have asked me to explain what any of the above meant, I'd have no idea what you were talking about.
Now, I play them every day.
