Reason as the Leading Motive

Books/Authors – Past and Future

Posted by Jerry on December 30, 2005

Books/Authors that I read in 2005 [this list does not mean I liked all of the books/authors that I read, nor is this an exhaustive listing of all my reading activities]:

The Idiot – by Dostoevsky

The Da Vinci Code – by Dan Brown

Judgement Day – by Nathaniel Branden

What Art is – by Louis Torres & Michelle Marder Kamhi

The Irrational Man: A Study in Existential Philosophy – by William Barrett

Philosophy: From Hellenes to Heidegger – I don’t remember the author’s name

Objectivism and the Corruption of Rationality: A Critique of Ayn Rand’s Epistemology – by Scott Ryan

Digital Fortress – by Dan Brown

The Russian Radical – by Chris Sciabarra

We The Living – by Ayn Rand

Books I’d like to read in 2006:

Brother Karamazov – by Dostoevsky

Madame Bovary – by Gustave Flaubert

The World is Flat – by Thomas Friedman

I can’t think of any other one’s I wish to read.

Any other suggestions? I typically read non-fiction works, though I don’t like reading political non-fiction.

    Try Confederacy Of Dunces, by John Kennedy Toole.

    Definitely read Madame Bovary. Flaubert is, in the words of a friend, “tits.”

    Confederacy of Fools… that’s the one about some political shit, and Bush.. I remember seeing it at Borders, and confused it with Confederacy of Dunces.

    And yet, it doesn’t seem like my “type” of book… a farcical comedy? Hmm… nah.
