The Björn Jawerth Memorial Site

Books

Books were a huge part of Björn’s life. In addition to a refined collection of mathematics and computer science books, he had a vast library on a wide range of topics. It is difficult to say which were his favorites because he enjoyed reading very much, but here are some titles that one could find when browsing his shelves.

Boorstin, Daniel
The Discoverers 
The Creators: A History of Heroes of Imagination
The Seekers: The Story of Man’s Continuing Quest to Understand His World Knowledge

Gottlieb, Anthony – The Dream of Reason: A History of Philosophy from the Greeks to the Renaissance

Hitchens, Christopher – Letters to a Young Contrarian (Art of Mentoring)
