What are your favorite philosophy books?

I dont mean introductions or anthologies or any kind of text book but what are your favorite primary texts?

Descartes - Meditations on First Philosophy

Hume - An Enquiry Concerning Human Understanding

Nietzsche - Genealogy of Morals, Beyond Good and Evil, Thus Spoke Zarathustra

Spinoza - Ethics

(Bernard) Williams - Ethics and the Limits of Philosophy, Truth and Truthfulness.

David Kellogg Lewis - On the Plurality of Worlds

This book sounds interesting. I have practically no background or knowledge in philosophy, do you think this will be too much for me?

Keep a philosophy dictionary nearby. Oxford is a good one. If you’re generally a smart person, and you’re pretty good at reading, then you’ll probably be ok. He covers alot of ground in that book.

Okay thanks. I have a PDF of the Oxford book on my pc.

seuss - the sneetches


Oh my god man. I’ve loaned out my copy and I’m afraid I may never get it back. You think you could email me that .pdf? I can trade you tons of philosophy texts.

Sure. I actually have the Cambridge Dictionary of Philosophy and the Oxford Companion to Philosophy. Which one do you want? And also which texts do you have to trade? Do you have On the Plurality of Worlds?
