The science journal Nautilus devoted its 11th issue to exploring and understanding light. A very well-done collection of articles, I found several that offered unique perspectives on both the science and impact of light.
In particular, I enjoyed:
Take Light, Not Drugs: A piece looking at the history of light therapy for SAD and other possible disorders.
Why Light Inspires Rituals: A cultural anthropologist is studying how natural, dynamic patterns of light lead to wonder
Drowning in Light: The author questions if we will reach a “saturation point” of artificial lighting
