General Knowledge Literature & Philosophy

Our high respect for a well-read person is praise enough for literature

We agree with T.S. Eliot’s quote and we’re working on it, compiling literature & philosophy lists has whetted our appetite for more. So what is general knowledge literature? In its most banal sense it means formed with letters. More poetically, it describes the art of written work. Philosophy is derived from love of wisdom. It’s a huge task to select and condense material from centuries of fascinating and thought-provoking works into ADDucation lists. It takes longer than you’d think because the moment start compiling a list, especially the works of so many authors and philosophers, the subject draws you in and it’s hard to draw the line – but we do so you can read less and learn more.
