Your list surprised me. I earned an MS in physics, but it was back in 1975. Although I have been endlessly curious about just about every other field of intellectual inquiry, I just can’t seem to cultivate any interest in physics. I have not read a single one of the books on your list.
well the books I read aren’t the real physics you studied but physics for laypersons. As a philosopher you need a little understanding of quantum and relativity theory. But without the mathematics.
