About meAs a child I read lots of fantasy and lots of science fiction as an teenager. I then read theology, religion, mysticism, and spirituality for many years. I now read philosophy almost exclusively. Although I still try to read at least one good work of fiction every year.

I most enjoy collecting books on modern philosophy, what some might call the system builders like Spinoza, Leibniz, Kant or Hegel. Of these my favorite is Hegel.
