Hi everyone,<br />
<br />
I am currently reading many books ranging from political to economic philosophy (Also not forgetting the good old ethics, logic and reason side to this great subject).<br />
<br />
But while I was reading "Groundwork of the Metaphysics of Morals" by Kant today in the garden, I realised that I didn't have a clue what was going on. All I could see were stupidly confusing words and phrases - the title of the book being one.<br />
<br />
I will be applying to universities (course - PPE) this year so I need to have done a good personal statement with quite a few books included but I don't want to use something that I haven't learnt from. <br />
I've never been taught philosophy at school so you can see why I have this dilemma. <br />
<br />
Please guys, can you give me a thorough list of some good, informative but not <b>too</b> basic books out there which will cover the main areas - I am deeply interested by political philosophy e.g J.S.Mill but I would like a mixture. I also like watching lectures and I don't mind podcasts either which are informative so any suggestions?<br />
<br />
Thank you very much for your help.

Don't expect to understand everything from a single reading

these seem good
