A historian who used to be serious

Historian Joseph Ellis admits he was once a philosophical youth.
What books might we be surprised to find on your shelves?
"Because I majored in philosophy as an undergraduate, there are several shelves of books by Plato, Kant, Hume, Locke and Nietzsche. Just looking over at them reminds me that once upon a time I was a very serious young man. Otherwise, I’ve got a full collection of books about Bill Russell, Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics." nyt
