:braces self:



I too come here in the 11th hour, sorry about that. Your list is intriguing. Even if I would not "agree" with all choices on the list, from what I am seeing in your comments you are defending your choices cogently.

My question is with the inclusion of Hull. It is the book that does not seem to 'fit' at least in some ways. It is less 'theory-ish' than the others on this text. In fact, I won't go so far as to say it is self-help, but it is a more popular-market book on spirituality and the like.

Can you explain to me not the value of Hull the work, but your reasoning behind including it in a top ten list of theoretical works? I'd love to hear both what makes this theory to you (not saying it isn't -- I think some things are theory that others would not and can be quite perverse about it), and also how it merits such a position of status in your readings.
