Reading for Wisdom

Reading for wisdom

We've lost the path to wisdom in the modern age and we're drowning in a sea of meaningless information. A vast library is unnecessary, only a few books are needed to lay the foundations of wisdom.


We divide books into two categories:

foundational and supplemental.


Foundational books provide the intellectual scaffolding, or bedrock, for humane, rational and sensible thought and action. They will inform all the thinking you do in life. Supplemental books build upon, critique and diversify your knowledge.
