List of must read Philosophy books?(r/philosophy)

This is such a broad question, and you’ll hate me for suggesting this, but I would recommend anthologies in each of the branches. Readings in Ethics, Metaphysics, etc. that are fairly recent will situate you into the debates in each particular branch of philosophy. From there, you can investigate the full original sources on your own and follow up on objections or qualifications.

For a good, one book read, I’d recommend Bertrand’s History

However, since you mentioned Plato’s Republic, I’d also recommend these books in the realm of political philosophy – they’re a bit of a tour de force, and form the basic outline of Western political thought:

In terms of metaphysics and ethics, I would highly recommend this Levinas anthology, but it helps to contextualize Levinas. Further, you can’t miss the classics such as Kant’s Groundwork and Aristotle’s Nicomachean Ethics
