What author has irrevocably changed your life?
thanks all you !
Melvilles "Moby DIck" has changed my life. Sounds boring to you us-citizens? Well, i read a very modern transation (german), much easier than the original. Moby Dick is just this brilliant mixture of pseudophilosophy, action, science, and much more.
I was also quite gripped by the Mu Mon KWan, Zen-Buddhism, again a german translation. (The gateless Gate)
At least, the Taotechhing by Lao Tsu
You see, I am much more a Buddhist than a western philosopher:bigsmile:
