Over the years I’ve been able to read many books about many different subjects: Mathematics , physics, astronomy , chemistry, medicine , history, philosophy , education , psychology , religion , economics , literature , comics, sex , you name it.
The most important category of books for me is science, or more precisely the exact sciences , mathematics being the first and the “queen” of these sciences , which use the scientific and experimental method.
The main steps or principles of the scientific method are:
— observing phenomena and collecting data.
— creating hypotheses with the adequate mathematical model.
— experimental/empirical verification of the hypotheses .
— building coherent theories.
I’ll list or describe a number of books read by me in pages according to their categories , sometimes with personal commentaries. Needless to say , some books belong to more than one category. For example , the Critique of Pure Reason by Kant is in the philosophy category/page , but it is related to logic and to (the philosophy of ) science and has had a historical and important influence on the development and progress of the exact sciences.
