What should be included in a canon and what should not? How about the books that have shaped the world...
But there are hundreds... how about the barest minimum
The Bible, the Koran, Socrates' Dialogues, Pythagoras' Geometries, the Odyssey, the Illiad, Machiavelli, Bernouilli, Newton, Leibnitz, it becomes a list of names.
I'm unsatisfied at the IDEA of a Canon because there are simply so MANY books.
