RECOMMENDED READING

.

     This section contains a list of my favorite books and titles worth reading as a foundation to good thought and the pursuit of your own philosophy. I’ve listed the books in the order I would read them again. There are many more books I could recommend, though sometimes some books are enough, as suggested by Seneca:

“You must linger among a limited number of master thinkers, and digest their works, if you would derive ideas which shall win firm hold in your mind.”

  1. Walden by Henry David Thoreau

  2. Cosmos by Carl Sagan

  3. The Scarlet Letter by Nathaniel Hawthorn

  4. Meditations by Marcus Aurelius (George Long translation)

  5. The Enchiridion by Epictetus

  6. On the Shortness of Life by Seneca

  7. The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck

  8. Moral Letters to Lucilius by Seneca

  9. Essays by Ralph Waldo Emerson (particularly Self Reliance)

  10. The Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins

  11. The House of the Seven Gables by Nathaniel Hawthorn

  12. Moby Dick by Herman Melville

  13. Code of Hammurabi

  14. Enuma Elish - The Babylonian Epic of Creation

  15. The Torah with Rashi commentary

  16. The Bible (King James edition) I read one chapter a day, beginning at the front and proceeding to the back, and then round-and-round again, Monday through Friday (heck, even God took the weekend off).

ABOUT

Going Alone was begun by Kurt Bell in an effort to help others understand and manage  the recognition of the apparent indifference of the universe to our well being, happiness or even our existence, and to find ways to make a good life in spite of this fact.
