Recommendation of a few Audible Books and Great Courses
I choose these books as a starting point for a deep dive into a rabbit hole of immense pleasure of learning and enjoying.
This is one of the greatest professors/musicians in my opinion. Prof. Robert Greenberg. I have listened to over two dozen of his courses and can’t get enough.
How to Listen to and Understand Great Music, 3rd Edition
By: Prof. Robert Greenberg
This is a wonderful compilation of great philosophers and their big ideas. An amazing intro.
The Great Ideas of Philosophy, 2nd Edition
By: Prof. Daniel N. Robinson
Origin and Evolution
Covers all the way from big bang to our tiny blue dot. Just mind-blowing.
The Origin and Evolution of Earth : From the Big Bang to the Future of Human Existence
By: Prof. Robert M. Hazen
I will also heartily recommend “Origins of Life” by Prof. Hazen.
To get a little meta, this is a nice compilation of some of the greatest books. Again this turned out to be a good intro to many books and then lets one choose their own rabbit holes.
