3/3. Finally the religion section. I wanted to get major religions in, from the Eastern faiths to atheism, which rejects religion but is involved in theological debates. If he makes it through all of 1-3‘s readings, he gets some kind of merit badge or a big box of cookies or something. 😂👏🏻

Sbk89 “A History of God “ by Karen Armstrong 1d
rwmg I would recommend this as covering more than just the Western tradition in Christianity: 1d
GlassAsDiamonds Having just finished a Kierkegaard.... ouch, poor guy! I‘d recommend the duology instead of just the Tao of Pooh for a fuller and more accessible insight into Taoism though 😊 1d
MrBook @Sbk89 @rwmg @GlassAsDiamonds All excellent selections 😁👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻! I love our Litsy Family! 🤗 1d

2/3. All of these subjects he‘s asking about are quite broad, to say the least, lol. So, I‘ve recommended to him general surveys and some of the most pivotal material in philosophy. As for history, well, that‘s huge 😆! Broad surveys it is, so he gets the entire world‘s history through ~1500, and then bits and pieces thereafter, with a focus on his own country of America, touching on many world events 1700s-2010.

rwmg TBH I wouldn't recommend Hume: A Very Short Introduction. It's based on a series of lectures Ayer gave expounding his views on Hume rather than an introduction to Hume.
1d
MrBook @rwmg That‘s totally fine 😊, I think 10 librarians would offer 10 different lists, lol. Besides a couple of Hume‘s actual works, it was this or the Hume installment in the “in 90 Minutes” series, which is a meh series to me. 🙈 1d

1/3. Okay, so here‘s my latest Readers Advisory response. Patron is entering the university in town. Wants a basic general introduction to political theory, philosophy, history, and religion. Which books should he start with? (I also offered podcasts for him too as a bonus.) Some books we have, some we don‘t. These books assert a smattering of major political philosophies across the spectrum, from dictatorship to anarchism.

Verity I have a gorgeous hardback edition of valley of the dolls. I liked the novel but I think I love the look of my edition more than the contents! And I have a copy of Rebecca from the same set and that‘s gorgeous too! 2d
rwmg Rebecca and The God of Small Things. Rebecca has stayed with me in a way that The God of Small Things hasn't 2d
