I have a horrible tendency to start reading other books when I am in the middle (or beginning) of another. And because I rarely read two book chapters in a row, I am usually reading several books on any given day. Sometimes the books don’t hang together as a interwoven whole but sometimes, to my great pleasure, the various chapters mutually support and reinforce synonymous concepts across historical time. Right now, my book set is wonderfully stimulating, so I thought I would share.
- The Principles of Psychology (unabridged), William James
- Essays in Radical Empiricism, William James
- William James on Consciousness Beyond the Margin, Eugene Taylor
- Experience and Nature, John Dewey
- The Meaning of the Body, Mark Johnson
- Self to Self, J. David Velleman
- Political Affect: Connecting the Social and the Somatic, John Protevi
- Action in Perception, Alva Noë
Every book is awesome in its own way.
