    Why do people tie black threads in their feet - this is the real reason

    Many people wear black threads on their feet. But many people do not know about this why why black thread is tied in the feet? Many people give the name of fashion to bind black thread to the feet, whereas most girls bind the black thread in their feet.

    I just wanted to say thank you for all the hard work you've put into the lists.
    I am interested in furthering my knowledge of world cultures, history and have a better liberal education in general, and your list of 36 will be my starting point. Hopefully getting into the 150 one with time.
    Thanks again!

    Hello I think you have an interesting canonical criteria and would like to reference this website. However, I keep reading "I" with no mention of name. May I reference you?

    I noted that Sophocles's Theban plays are listed on the "Western" page but not the overall list of 150.

    I find your list confusing; i have been reading through it and there are a number of things i don't understand.

    What does European mean, exactly? What made you come to the conclusion that there is a European civilization who's best representatives are Kant, Marx and Shakespeare?

    I seems so random: You could replace Kant with Descartes, Marx with Mill and Shakespeare with Flaubert.

    Also i think i know why you have a problem seeing a foundational book for European civilisation.

    Such a book would be philosophical like Bacon's Organum and Aquinas's Summa Theologica or a shared mythological past like those found in Arthurian romances.

    Personally i would make this list:


    Chrétien de Troyes - Five Arthurian romances.


    Edward Gibbon - Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire


    Thomas Aquinas - Summa Theologica
    René Descartes - Meditations


    William Shakespear - King Lear
