“The New Organon,” by Francis Bacon (1561–1626) . Bacon, like Seneca, was both a brilliant scholar and a player in the political arena. His career in politics, however, also had many ups and downs. In our day, he is best known for treatises such as The Advancement of Learning and The New Organon. Written as a series of aphorisms, The New Organon lays out principles of scientific investigation that aided the revolution in science during the 17th century.

Dune by Frank Herbert. Dune will be forever considered a triumph of the imagination. Set on the desert planet Arrakis, it is the story of the boy Paul Atreides, who will become the mysterious man known as Muad'Dib. Paul's noble family is named stewards of Arrakis, whose sands are the only source of a powerful drug called "the spice." After his family is brought down in a traitorous plot, Paul must go undercover to seek revenge, and to bring to fruition humankind's most ancient and unattainable dream. A stunning blend of adventure and mysticism, environmentalism and politics. Join the library book club that is going to discuss all things geek culture.
