The next pandemic won't erupt from the rainforest. It's coming by way of hospitals, refugee camps & cities. Archive: http://ow.ly/JK7uW
The next pandemic will erupt, not from the jungle, but from the disease factories of hospitals, refugee camps and cities

Last week's most-read essay, which argues that the Many Worlds Interpretation is philosophically inconceivable: http://ow.ly/JJZfO
Nobody knows what happens inside quantum experiments. So why are some so keen to believe in parallel universes?

‘Genius is no more than childhood recaptured at will,’ said Baudelaire. Neuroscience is starting to agree. ow.ly/JHuIe

Ritual acts are not intelligible in practical terms, but they are at the very center of human sociality. Archive pick http://ow.ly/JKqEb
Rituals bind us, in modern societies and prehistoric tribes alike. But can our loyalties stretch to all of humankind?

That initial assertion is unfounded. There is an unstated premise. Better that it be stated. Not to do so begs the question, and that is intellectually dishonest.

Story
Tagline
Aeon is an online magazine of ideas and culture. We publish original essays and short documentary films, free to all. aeon.co/magazine & aeon.co/film
Introduction

Aeon Magazine, which launched in September 2012, publishes an original essay every weekday. See a selection of our most popular essays.

Aeon Film, which launched in November 2013, screens contemporary and classic short documentaries.

Our content is organised around five themes:

World Views takes on contemporary culture clashes, ancient philosophical conundrums and the many ways in which our beliefs shape experience.

Nature & Cosmos looks through the eyes of cutting-edge scientists, explorers and other attentive observers to bring the universe’s myriad patterns into focus.

Being Human puts our own nature under the microscope, comparing insights from psychology, anatomy, evolutionary theory and simple introspection.

Living Together searches for fresh lessons and hopeful developments in the greatest and most complicated of human projects, co-existence.

Altered States explores ritual, play, recreation and imagination: whatever it takes to get beyond the everyday world.
