What are some good books you could recommend?

The word "Philosophy" is derived from the Ancient Greek - philosophía (compounded from phílos: friend, or lover and sophía: wisdom). To quote from WikiPedia, "Philosophy is the discipline concerned with the questions of what is the right way to live (ethics), what sorts of things ultimately exist and what are their essential natures (metaphysics), what is to count as genuine knowledge (epistemology), and what are the correct principles of reasoning (logic).

What are some good books that you can recommend?

Also, in one sentence each:

Could you explain why you loved the book so much?
How did it impact your daily life after having read it?

Is your question "could you please recommend some good books on general philosophy"?

Answering each of your questions in one sentence will certainly be a challenge for any member who replies.

Generally in my experience, philosophers are often not particularly good at summarizing anything. :smt002  :smt002

But I sincerely hope that you will get a response any way.
