I’d like to read books on Aquinas, Sartre, Kant...

Also any good reads relating to metaphysics and epistemology

Any other books on any type of philosophy.

I am interested in widening my knowledge in this discipline as much as possible.

For Sartre, you can literally just read the texts. Existentialism and Humanism is very accessible, but you might want to avoid Being and Nothingness without a good text guide. Most of the Existentialists are fairly readable.

Kant is well-known for being impenetrable, so you might want to start with his IEP (https://www.iep.utm.edu/kantview/) and/or Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy (https://plato.stanford.edu/entries/kant-moral/#Oth) pages and then go from there and the suggested further readings (this is often a good place to start). I would do the same for Aquinas, too.

For good reads on metaphysics/epistemology, lots of entry-level original texts are fairly accessible, like the Meno, Meditations, or Hume's Enquiries. There are good general philosophy reading lists here https://www.kings.cam.ac.uk/study/un...y-reading-list and here https://intranet.royalholloway.ac.uk...-list-2016.pdf

Reading Russell's A History of Western Philosophy is also a good introduction, if very long!

Hope that's helpful
