The philosophy canon

Following the success of our Life Canon project, which looked at the 10 essential books for flourishing in the modern world, we have produced a series of Canon lists examining the best books in specific topic areas - from history to philosophy. We've already published the well-being canon and the history canon, and now here is the philosophy canon - 10 essential books to help you gain an overview on philosophy.

As before, the list is not meant to be a presentation of the great cultural works of our time, but a set of accessible and interesting books that provide perspective, ideas and inspiration.
