  • Slavoj Zizek for modern philosophy. Any book.

    For literature, anything Oscar Wilde. The Picture of Dorian Gray is one of my favorites. Great book. I love Oscar Wilde. He had such unique thoughts.

    As for mythology, the Iliad--which I guess everyone has read--or the Oedipus plays. Sophocles's three Theban plays.

    • Yeah. Some philosophy is really convoluted, has a lot of parts to consider. :/ Kant is pretty heavy. I'll give Thus Spoke Zarathustra a shot, too, when I'm feeling brave. xD

      Incidentally, a lot of the classics you can get for free on kindle app. Oh, there's also an app called "Overdrive", where you can check out e-books from libraries. I haven't bought a book in awhile, 'cause I just borrow e-books. I really like reading on a smart phone, because you don't have to have the light on. Plus you don't have to go to the library to get them, just click and done.

    • yeah you re right, ill try them, thanks :)

    Reflections by Idries Shah: en.wikipedia.org/.../Reflections_(Sufi_literature)

    Bite-sized philosophy for those on the go. STILL manages packs quite the cognitive punch, because that's just how good he is.

    Mahabharata: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mahabharata

    THE Sanskrit war epic. Deeply intertwined with Hindu philosophy.

    NOTE: Do NOT attempt without substantial amount of free time, if you're the type to get sucked in. Two words: 18 books.

  • One of the best books I have ever read, Love & Responsibility by Karol Wojtyla.

    One of these days, I'd like to read Aquinas' Summa Theologica.

  • The Dresden files Its about a wizard who lives in chicago and is a PI
    From one of the bookjackets
    “Let's get something clear up front. I'm not Harry Dresden. Harry's a wizard. A genuine, honest-to-goodness wizard. He's Gandalf on crack and an IV of Red Bull, with a big leather coat and a.44 revolver in his pocket. He'll spit in the eye of gods and demons alike if he thinks it needs to be done, and to hell with the consequences"
