I thought this was talking about Alfred Adler lol. Anyways, I read Plato, Homer, Herodotus, Aristotle, Plutarch kind of, Dante Alighieri, Niccol" Machiavelli, Thomas Hobbes, John Locke, Jean Jacques Rousseau, Adam Smith, James Madison, Leo Tolstoy, Karl Marx kind of, Sigmund Freud, Mark Twain, F. Scott Fitzgerald, John Maynard Keynes, and George Orwell. I have to say my favorites are Dante's Inferno, Plato's Dialogues, Hobbe's Leviathan, most of the works by Sigmund Freud, and Aristotle's Politics. My least favorites were Herodot's' Histories (burn it in a fire for its errors), Twain's Huckleberry Finn (so overrated), and Keynes' The General Theory of Employment, Interest and Money (nice try).
