Once there was a thread about books in here, but probably it has been deleted because it actually had nothing to do with philosophy. I am asking for recommendations of philosophical works now. I would like to get a better education in philosophy, best through the original works of the original thinkers. This might also include not strictly philosophical stuff like Freud or Jung, Spengler or Adam Smith... So far i have only read some Nietzsche and Plato's Republic, am fighting with Schopenhauers Welt als Wille und Vorstellung right now and have read some essays by Werner Heisenberg about Philosophy and quantum physics. Reading reviews on amazon i found hints of many interresting ideas and books but you never know what is the actual centerpiece of the works of a philosopher and what you should read... And there is so much.. what do you recommend - Aristoteles? Wittgenstein? Frege? Quine? ..? If you think this thread does not belong here because it only asks for recomendations in philosophy delete it - or open a new subforum for literature.
