Spring break readings

Welcome to our eclectic scholarly jungle! Our Spring Break is still a week away, but here is what we’ve been reading or rereading or will start reading over our break:

  1. Unwritten Rules, an essay by Stephen Sniderman.
  2. Fides et Ratio (pictured below), Pope John Paul II’s encyclical on the relation between faith and reason.
  3. The Art of Game Design, a comprehensive, interdisciplinary guidebook for game designers written by Jesse Schell.
  4. Ten Great Ideas about Chance (pictured below), a history of the main breakthroughs in probability theory written by Brian Skyrms and Persi Diaconis.
  5. Chapters 3 and 4 of Russell Hardin’s book Liberalism, Constitutionalism, and Democracy. (Chapter 3 is titled Contract or Coordination?; Chapter 4 is Agreement or Acquiescence?)
  6. Chapters 1, 3, 5, and 10 of Playing to Learn with Reacting to the Past, a collection of essays about role play games in education (edited by C. Edward Watson and Thomas Chase Hagood).
  7. Framing Contract Law, an interdisciplinary treatise by Columbia University law and economics professor Victor Goldberg. (My friend, colleague, and fellow contract law scholar Dan O’Gorman and I will be meeting on weekends to discuss the main ideas of this book.)
