Septivium Learn about everything


Septivium is an attempt to create a reading list of the very best books about everything.

Even educated people have huge gaps in their general knowledge and we’d like to help them fill those gaps. There are three things we need to do:

  1. Create a list of subjects that cover everything we’d want to learn about.

  2. Find the very best book(s) about each subject. If you’re going to read one book about human biology, or 20th century history, or continental philosophy, or any other subject, what should it be?

  3. Start a book group in which people could start reading about an area (the very best science books, the very best history books, etc) and discuss thoughts and ideas with fellow readers around the world.

The weblog explains difficulties and progress with tackling these.

If you have any thoughts on how best to do this, please email me.
