Meditations and Other Metaphysical Writings (Penguin Classics)
Meditations and Other Metaphysical Writings (Penguin Classics)
"The father of modern philosophy. Philosophy begins in doubt. Descartes shows from a first-person perspective how we doubt belief in an external world. 'I think therefore I am' is all I can be sure of."
Critique of Pure Reason
Critique of Pure Reason
"The classic work of transcendental philosophy. Logical demonstration that we live in the phenomenal world, whilst noumenon (things-in-themselves) remains beyond reason."

"Schopenhauer took Kant's method, simplified it and saw the connection with Eastern philosophy. I am not totally convinced by his argumentation, eg his criticisms of Kant, but this book is insightful."
A Treatise Concerning the Principles of Human Knowledge (Oxford Philosophical Texts)

"Berkeley's classic work refuting materialism. Even today it's difficult to argue against Berkeley's position. Dancy's commentary in this version are very useful."
The Logic of Scientific Discovery (Routledge Classics)
The Logic of Scientific Discovery (Routledge Classics)
"I add this because of its logical criticism of induction. If a valid model of the world is to be constructed from a transcendental foundation, some form of induction is needed, however."
Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (Routledge Classics)
Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus (Routledge Classics)
"Wittgenstein followed Kant and Schopenhauer exploring the limits of knowledge. "What can be said at all can be said clearly; and what we cannot talk about we must pass over in silence.""
