bookshelves: classic, philosophy

Read about half, wasn't interested. More of a perspective on our mythical past than a philosophy text. I knew the premise before I started: there is Dionysian and Apollonian, the former being our more feral side, the latter being the civilized, and the former is just as important as the latter.

Maybe I should have read the rest, since it's short, but I just found myself drifting off.
