I'm not well-versed on the human brain, and I'd like to know something.
What do you think is the ideal age to make a child read a complex, 'adult' book?
I want to exercise the critical thinking of my little brother who is 7. I thought about forcing him, or at least encouraging him to toroughly read great books like War & Peace, The Gulag Archipelago, aswell as The Red Wheel. I want him to become diligent and disciplined, this is why I believe it would be a good idea to make him start much, much sooner.
I'm French, and I also thought about teaching him Latin and English. I also decided to increment a few advanced algebra and geometry exercises so he gets accustomized to logical thinking.
Do you think this is too much for a kid whose balls haven't even dropped yet? Is he too young?
Alternatively, do you have some books for this purpose?
By the way, my goal would be to make him join a Grande Ecole (France). This is why I'm counting on this to improve his reasoning skills, along with his short-term memory.

So, how do you think science might be different if it had been developed with a feminine perspective? Are there potential insights that mainstream thought has made us blind to?
I believe that there would be a much higher priority on into practical, daily life kind of things--nutritious, sustainable food distribution, better lifestyle (not this one-size-fits-all capitalist garbage), and psychology would actually not be vague proto-science. Medicine would probably be about the same. On the downside, there'd potentially be a lot less research into aerospace, exploration, far-out dreamer stuff.
