A timely reminder that doubt is a good thing
I would recommend this to all who are afflicted by doubt. It is all to easy to treat doubt as a sign of moral weakness or the result of insufficient effort. Doubters are often treated as subversive or self serving. This short collection is an excellent summary of the history and importance of doubt.
