Books & Literature


Raymond M. SmullyanWith more than a dozen puzzle-books involving word play, logic & metalogic, as well as philosophical paradoxes - including a list of fascinating texts containing logical insights - Smullyan's writing has something for everyone.

Aesop's Fables (kids) & (adults):  Every child and adult should know the stories of Aesop - "The Boy and the Wolf", "The Lion and the Mouse", "The Tortoise and the Hare" are just a few of the many compelling stories of profound wisdom found in this book; each ending with the simple moral, evoked in a single sentence.

Atlas Shrugged (by Ayn Rand)Philosopher Ayn Rand dramatizes her unique philosophy through an intellectual mystery story that integrates ethics, metaphysics, epistemology, politics, economics, and sex.

A World of Ideas (by Lee Jacobus)The most successful book of its kind, "A World of Ideas" is an ideal anthology for those who wish to be introduced to some of the world's most important thinkers and their ideas: for example, Niccoló Machiavelli on government, Sigmund Freud on the mind, and Virginia Woolf on feminism. Because of the manner in which these essays are presented, the reader tends to read them more attentively and think more critically. No other compilation offers a comparable collection of such important readings along with the structure needed to understand, analyze, and respond to each of them... (not just for "writers").

An Introduction to Philosophical Logic (by Anthony C. Grayling)A popular mainstay for students taking courses in philosophical logic and the philosophy of language. Covering some of the most central topics in philosophy - the proposition, theories of truth, existence, meaning and reference, realism and anti-realism - it aims to be an accessible guide to philosophical logic.
