Om migAs an admirer of eloquent, scholarly works, I love a well-stocked academic library, especially homebased for privacy and concentration. Ever since college when I sought out wizened, high-browed professors, I focused more on the booktitles dispayed in their metal shelves instead of what they prattled about during a scheduled office session. My serious passion for collecting books occurred while attending the university, as reading became a therapeutic pastime away from domestic distractions.

"Mein Lieb ist ein Schal in dem ein Kuchelein vom Geist der Ewigkeit will ausgebrutet sein." --Goethe?

"Experientia docet"
Experience teaches.

"A man who does not know a foreign language is ignorant of his own." --Goethe

"The limits of my language signify the limits of my world." --Wittgenstein

"Against my will, in the course of my travels, the belief that everything worth knowing was known at Cambridge gradually wore off. In this respect my travels were very useful to me." --Bertrand Russell

Most have an insatiable desire to know the answers to these philosophical questions: "Who are we?" "Where did we come from?" What is our future?" These questions are so difficult that people have spun simple answers often to benefit their own position in life. We must be constantly vigilant against the mongers of irrationality, viewing the path not as a conflict between reason and imagination, but rather as an alignment of the two. The balance is tenuous given our own nature.

Om mit bibliotekAt the hub of my private hold is a healthy abundance of philosophy books, a subject that I studied to obtain a degree, but one will also discover much English literature, an area which I received my first credential. The library reflects my life of teaching in the subjects I love: history, poetry, essays, humanities etc. It is a scholar's cornucopia of several lifetimes of reading.

Despite online digital resources, I still rely extensively on my private collection as a reference tool. However, I've discarded most journal publications since these are available through institutional databases.

Lately I've been swayed by the quote: "Better to be an expert in a single field rather than to have a smattering of knowledge in all fields." This is not to say that one should ignore learning in other areas. Instead, one needs to recognize personal limitations to remain open to alternative explanations. Also a healthy dose of skepticism is very useful. Today readers should study philosophy books since critical thinking skills obtained from them apply to nearly all branches of inquiry.
