Yet another newb question

Can anybody recommend any books or videos that talk about the philosophy or academic underpinnings of Kotlin?

I’m new to the language but an experience programmer. My current language of choice is Clojure, and when I was learning that I found resources like The Joy of Clojure and Rich Hickey’s talks really valuable because they focused on the *why* of the language design. I haven’t found anything like that for Kotlin yet – the beginner stuff is focused on syntax, and the more advanced stuff is either feature descriptions or demonstrations of syntatic sugar. All of that is awesome and useful, but I’d also really appreciate some of the more eggheady stuff.
