- Katherine Tait, My Father Bertrand Russell (Harcourt, Brace, Jovanovich, 1975).
- Chris Mooney, The Republican Brain: The Science of Why They Deny Science - and Reality (John Wiley & Sons, 2012)
And that humans do not follow reason is a theme of Mooney's. The science of motivated reasoning, behavioral economics, etc., shows that humans cannot be made to follow reasoning. I've previously noted some of the studies on which Mooney draws.
So these two books share a common anti-utopian theme.
