This list, except for reference works, represents not only books that I have read and movies that I have watched, but books that I quote, authors from whom I borrow concepts, or that have had an influence on me. The very most impactful ones on me are in bold letters. No effort has been made beyond that to rank the magnitude of contribution or influence, but, of course, some books and movies tower over others in these regards. Also, some have been much more valuable for their information than for their conjectures or conclusions. The list below also includes some videos and plays that have influenced my thinking.
