The 10 books that will make it hard to believe in a physical universe
Reading | Philosophy | 2023-09-17
Essentia is starting its own book club on YouTube! In a series of videos, we will discuss 20th-century must reads by authors like Carl Gustav Jung, Noam Chomsky and Thomas Kuhn, to seminal work by idealists such as Schopenhauer. And, of course, we will pay tribute to foundational ancients texts as discussed by, for instance, Peter Kingsley and Patrick Harpur. As a starter, Hans Busstra asked Bernardo Kastrup to pick 10 books from his own shelf that most influenced his philosophical work. In this video, Bernardo briefly runs through the main ideas put forward in these books and how they changed his life. In the upcoming videos, Hans will do the homework by reading and reviewing these 10 books. You are, of course, invited to read along and send in your own insights and questions (please do so via our YouTube community page: https://www.youtube.com/@essentiafoundation/community). The first book to be discussed after this video will be ‘Answer to Job,’ by Carl Gustav Jung.
