"On The Nature of Things" - Lucretius. "Meditations on First Philosophy" - Descartes. "The Demon Haunted World: Science as a Candle in the Dark" - Carl Sagan. "The Portable Atheist" - Christopher Hitchens. "Being and Time" - Martin Heidegger. "Beyond Good and Evil" - Friedrich Nietszche.
I hope to broaden my range as a reader and engage in interesting discussion with fellow bibliophiles.
I've never heard it put better than this; "In science it often happens that scientists say, 'You know that's a really good argument; my position is mistaken,' and then they would actually change their minds and you never hear that old view from them again. They really do it. It doesn't happen as often as it should, because scientists are human and change is sometimes painful. But it happens every day. I cannot recall the last time something like that happened in politics or religion." — Carl Sagan
I am an Undergraduate currently studying for a double major in Science and Philosophy. I also have a keen interest in Politics, Social Justice and the Arts.
