The Metaphysical Book List

“The love of books is a love which requires neither justification, apology, nor defense.”

-J.A. Langford, The Praise of Books (1880)

Synthesizing and combining broad bases of knowledge is something I’ve been interested in ever since I can remember. The sense that there’s a unifying thread running through everything in our lives.

The study of metaphysical thought is something which has broadened and deepened my existence. It’s my hope that you may find value in this list of books I’ve put together. It’s up to us to analyze the information with critical eyes and insert the knowledge and wisdom into our life philosophy where we feel it’s applicable.
