Zee, from your posts I can surmise that you have an interest in religions, both ancient and modern, as well as the esoteric but are you also interested in political science?

Boss, if you want to catch up on this list, I would suggest collecting books from Penguin's 'Great Ideas' series :p - http://www.penguin.co.uk/static/cs/u...s/index_1.html

Also, I agree that there is a great western bias in this list. The Penguin books aren't much better but they do have books by Sun Tzu (The Art of War is another jarring omission from the above list), Tagore, Chinua Achebe etc. I'm surprised that all these lists miss out on some Chinese epics such as Journey to the West which has influenced the childhoods of hundreds of millions of Chinese kids (and East Asians)
