About meI have written for Reason, Liberty, and other publications, including the late, great Loompanics Unlimited Catalog.

Look up the name "Timothy Wirkman Virkkala" on Apple’s Books platform. You may find a number of ebooks with forewords by me. Authors include:

Richard Cantillon, economist
Alexis de Tocqueville, sociologist
Lord Acton, historian
Frédéric Bastiat, economist
Yves Guyot, economist
J.S. Mill, philosopher and economist
Henry David Thoreau, essayist
Louis Baudin, economist
J. H. Levy, economist and logician

About my libraryYou can see what I have. But it is what I lack that most concerns me. Books I am looking for: George Santayana in the early red-brown Scribner's editions: The Life of Reason: Reason in Science; Reason in Religion, etc.

A nice copy of Vaihinger's The Philosophy of As-If; works by Scottish Enlightenment writers (I have some, of course); the old, big edition, in 19th century hardcover, of William Hamilton's Metaphysics; old editions of Henry Sidgwick and Leslie Stephens; Herbert Spencer's Data of Sociology, etc., in the standard D. Appleton cover, red-brown with horizontal gold stripes; and nice paperbacks of Copleston's History of Philosophy, all editions after Leibniz (Vol. 5 on).

In economics, Gossen's treatise, Pareto's Manual, the recent translation of Dupuit, and anything by H. Dunning Macleod.

Great Books of the Western World, Britannica, in the cloth editions: 4. Homer; 8. Aristotle I; 28. Gilbert et al.; 34. Newton; 43. American State Papers, etc.; 44. Boswell; 45. Lavoisier; 47. Goethe; 48. Melville; 50. Marx Engels; 53. William James.
