The Greatest Books Ever Written

Book titles are linked to Amazon. Before I disabled this, this was my criteria: In this age of Kindle and e-books, if you are getting physical copies of books, you want them to be quality – honing in on what Terence McKenna called “the felt presence of immediate experience,” looking like the books in the photo above. The link generally goes to the highest quality, probably leather-bound edition without a lot of negative reviews – usually in the $20 range.

This is actually a list of my collection, with some obvious personal favorites that no one likes pruned out, and I am biased toward underground and sci-fi. But generally, I include the most acclaimed or impactful books.

My ultimate criterion is, would I ever want to read this? So, no, Communist Manifesto, nein, Mein Kampf, and much academic literature, no way. And little poetry. There’s also some nostalgia here especially in Children’s.

Mycenae Stature

Mythology & Folklore

These dates are approximate and do not include the indeterminate period beforehand that extends far, far back, in some cases, to the caves.

Probably the oldest oral tradition is Grimms Fairy Tales – 1812 – which probably goes back to the Indo-Europeans

Aesop’s Fables – 600 BCE
Art of War – Sun Tzu 600 AD
Beowulf – 700 1000 AD
Bhagavad Gita – 400 BCE – 200 AD

If you are interested in mythology I highly recommend Joseph Campbells’s Sukhavati on DVD. It isn’t viewable on Youtube, but is easily the greatest summary of mankind’s mythologies ever made. It is the finest DVD I own, by a mile, and I learn something new every time I watch it. I have given countless copies to friends. In fact if you are a friend of mine ask and I’ll drive over and give you a copy right now.

The Works of Aristotle, the Famous Philosopher, is a sex manual and a midwifery book that was popular in England from the early modern period through to the – 19th century. It was first published in – 1684 and written by an unknown author who falsely claimed to be Aristotle
As a consequence the author is now described as a Pseudo-Aristotle, the collective name for unidentified authors who masqueraded as Aristotle. It is claimed that the book was banned in Britain until the – 1960s, although there was no provision in the UK for “banning” books as such. However reputable publishers and booksellers might have been cautious about vending Aristotle’s Masterpiece, at least in the wake of the 1857 Obscene Publications Act.
