Re: Essential Reading = ?

Re: Essential Reading = ?

For my money I would go Plato, Gibran Kahlil Gibran bin Mikhael bin Saâd, Henry David Thoreau, Augustine of Hippo, Siddhattha Gotama, Immanuel Kent, Descartes, and Donatien Alphonse François. Kent and Descartes are really hard reads so I hope you are a good readers, I might even save them for latte...

I am really a n00b in philosophy, theology, and the like, and I was wondering what you (Metacrock) and the others here wou...
