I plan to read more this year. I’ve made that resolution almost every year for the past 5 years, but have either failed miserably or read way less than I set out to. Or if I was planning on reading a specific title I just took a shortcut by reading a book-interview with the author or listening to a podcast where she summarizes her main arguments (I almost exclusively read non-fiction).
These are a couple of books I purchased recently and are on my list for 2018:
- On Tyranny – Timothy Sneider. Shortcut here
- On what matters III – Derek Parfit. And related , edited by Peter Singer. And Parfit’s classic
- Meditations – Marcus Aurelius
- The problems of philosophy – Bertrand Russell. Already started in this one, so at the very least this one I will have finished by year-end
- What does it all mean? – Thomas Nagel. I was really intrigued by one of Nagel’s more recent books, which I read a couple of years ago and which was named by the Guardian as “the most despised science book of 2012”.
- The Gene – Siddhartha Mukherjee
