Christmas comes two weeks early!

On the far side of The Bridge in Memorial, right by the copier and circulation office, there’s a shelf of free books the library is discarding. Usually, there are only multiple copies of obscure journals purchased by outdated engineering manuals and psychology texts informed by thoroughly debunked paradigms. However, today the free book shelf was as a goldmine. I took away nearly a dozen books (listed below). There are probably people who need them more than I do, and, in all honesty, could put them to better use than I; from the vantage point of two final projects and one semester away from graduation, it’s apparent I’m not going to start that minor in philosophy. Or the major.

So, if anyone wants anything listed below, you’re free to it. We can arrange a dropoff at your convenience.  

The Metaphysical Foundations of Modern Science, E.A. Burtt

The Vocation of Man, Johann Gottlieb Fitche

The Golden Age of American Philosophy, ed. Charles Frankel, an anthology containing selections from Chauncey Wright, Charles Pierce, William James, Josiah Royce, George Santayana, John Dewey, Ralph Barton Perry, C.I. Lewis, and Morris Raphael Cohen. Also, the only hardcover in the bunch.

The Origins of Psychoanalysis: Letters, Drafts, and Notes to Wilhelm Fliess (1887-1902), Sigmund Freud

Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics, Immanuel Kant

The Philosophy of Bertrand Russell, ed. Paul Arthur Schlipp

What is Life? and Other Essays, Edwin Schrodinger

Morality: An Introduction to Ethics, Bernard Williams

  1. I will take the first book off your hands… Sorry I was not more cordial in the library. I was shvitzing, tired, and on a mission. I have a few books in mind to loan you if you so desire.

  2. No worries. We’re all miserable finals week.
    Time/place for Burtt dropoff/loan pick-up?
