The Servile State book by Hilaire Belloc  "The Servile State" [1912] by Hilaire Belloc
This book makes the case for the natural instability of pure capitalism. Belloc argues that attempts to reform Capitalism lead to an economy where state regulation has emasculated it, removing its essential freedom – the effects of Socialist doctrine on Capitalist society produces a third thing different from either of its two begetters, an endpoint that Belloc calls 'The Servile State'.

Descartes's Error book by Antonio Damasio  "Descartes' Error: Emotion, Reason, and The Human Brain" [1994]
by Antonio R. Damasio

Neuroscientist Damasio shows that the concept of the dualist separation of mind & body and of rationality & emotion proposed by René Descartes is invalid; modern science (led by Damasio) now holds that the body and our emotions both have a key role in the way we think and in rational decision-making.

The Feeling of What Happens book by Antonio R. Damasio  "The Feeling of What Happens: Body and Emotion In The Making of Consciousness" [1999] by Antonio Damasio

Self Comes To Mind book by Antonio R. Damasio   "Self Comes To Mind: Constructing The Conscious Brain" [2010]
by Antonio Damasio

Neuroscientist Damasio rejects the long-standing idea that consciousness is separate from the body, and presents scientific evidence of evolutionary development of a human self as a challenge to nature’s indifference; this opens the way for the appearance of culture, perhaps one of our most defining characteristics as thinking and self-aware beings.

Ancient Greek philosopher Diogenes the Cynic [4th Century BCE] of Sinope {Turkey}
This is the guy who carried a lantern around Athens in the daytime, saying that he was looking for an honest man. What is known about him is scraps
from other writers of the era. Originally a banker's son, he made a virtue of extreme poverty, begging for a living and living in a ceramic wine cask.
He was captured at sea and sold into slavery, but escaped and then settled in Corinth.
