Food for Thought is weekly column in which we post something that we find especially stimulating. This can vary from graffiti to quotes, from videos to blogs, anything that we find particularly special and intellectually challenging.

Golden Oldies

From Herodotus to Habermas, from Machiavelli to Marx, from Russell to Rousseau, from Wilde to Wittgenstein, we aspire to display excerpts from classic texts by such renowned authors, as, in the words of Amy Powell, “the classics are always modern.” Look here to see what we call Golden Oldies; gems of writing and thought across almost 3000 years of history that we hope can help us understand the world today.
