 Besides being busy with IT and music I like to read books. This ranges from action and thriller novells to philosophical literature.

I like to read books about philosophy and other aspects of human life (like psychology), because of two things. In the first place it is very interesting to see how other people look at the world. But more importantly: these other views make me constantly think and reevaluate the way I view the world. For example: I am not a communist, however, the books of Karl Marx made me think about how wealth is divided in this world and about how we handle the labor force. Books about Socrates, Plato, and Aristoteles gave me insight in how the thought and acted. It also provided me with knowledge about the very foundations of philosophy. Below, you will find a list of books I own (and off course, have read) about philosophy and other aspects of human life. However this list is not conclusive.
