by Bertrand Russell - Project Gutenberg
This classic work is an approachable introduction to the theory of philosophical enquiry. It gives Russell's views on distinction between appearance and reality, the existence and nature of matter, idealism, induction, and the limits of knowledge.

Philosophy is the study of wisdom, and can emerge in our conversations in social media, in school, around the family dinner table, and even in the car. The text uses materials that are 2,500 years old, and materials that were in the news this year.
by Francis Bacon - Collier
This work was revolutionary in its attempt to give formal philosophical shape to emerging experimental science. It challenged the entire edifice of the philosophy of Bacon's time, and left its mark on all subsequent discussions of scientific method.
by Ben Blumson - Open Book Publishers
The strategy of the book is to argue that the apparently compelling objections raised against the platitude that depiction is mediated by resemblance are manifestations of more general problems, which are familiar from the philosophy of language.
