This is without a doubt the greatest maths textbook I have ever read:



The fact that this guy still works at a pretty obscure university (San Francisco) and has not published a book since then is very surprising.

maybe wander though the philosophy section at the library. find a decent overview of philosophical thought over the centuries and then follow up on what interests you the most

or

if you want:
  • an historical american transcendentalist-- try ralph waldo emerson
  • classic philosophers: plato, socrates, aristotle
  • contemporary intellectual: noam chomsky
  • literature: shakespere
  • poetry: t.s eliot
  • religious thought: thomas merton
