Lists include works I think are very useful to chew over. I don’t include them because I agree with them necessarily. I include them because they offer refined views that can be compared with other views and have been very useful for honing my understanding. Lists are in no specific order though I tried to put what has been most important for me to the top. I’ll be refining these lists and adding more content and links in time.
