Here, you will find my selection of the most important philosophical works of the last 4 millennia. You can download Word files containing compiled excerpts from the texts. This list is a work in progress. Each time I finish reading a work, I compile the excerpts into a document, and add them here.
Disclaimer: There are likely works included here that may be considered shocking or offensive to some. My inclusion of them here does not constitute my agreement or disagreement with the principles or philosophies included therein. They are included only because of their monumental impact on the world of personal, moral, political, or social philosophy.
