I read Shakespeare and Doug Hofstader with great appreciation (as well as the Bible). I'm not sure that the former have as much value for a life better lived, or understood. I'd prefer institutional authority be guided by the Bible over the other works you cite.

What am I missing in those other works, that might guide me in my roles in the family, the state, the marketplace?

Thanks in advance.
