t'aurais pu citer camus en français qd meme, espece d'impie! :p

Have you been able to read much in basic physics (to nail down some of those concepts)? If not, we thought perhaps the Feynman Lectures. Another book that is fairly basic are Essentials of Astronomy (Motz and Duveen) which is an introductory text for people who think they want to be astronomers.
For ideas more on the biology side you might try S. Gould or Loren Eiseley. Gould, in particular, was writing for the nonspecialist.
I have also enjoyed some of Carl Sagan's books.
I would also go to our catalog and look at the tag 'philosophy'. While many of these books are not directly related to science, many are, and you may may find some ideas of books to look for.
Please feel free to comment or ask questions at any time.

Actually your English appears to be quite fluent.

About your request. I need to talk to my husband (jmh) and see what he thinks. My first reaction was to recommend titles that I see you have listed in your catalog. What exactly are the areas you would like to explore? History of science, philosophy of science, other?

Meanwhile , have you come across 1) Revolution in Time by David S. Landes or 2) Hamlet's Mill by de Santillana & von Dechend. Both are in our catalog.
