Maria Popova

Yesterday on Live From Here with Chris Thile, author/blogger Maria Popova ("brainpickings.org") read the opening and closing lines of her brilliant book Figuring (as well as a passage on Rachel Carson, whose Silent Spring kickstarted the modern environmental movement). Popova's work marries cosmic philosophy to the atomism of Democritus, the happiness wisdom of Epicurus, and the naturalism of Darwin. Highly recommended.
