Ok thats the assignment. I already have my thesis, the years of the 14 philosophers I should write about and some of the books. My Teacher told us its 14 philosophers, 19 books total (5 of which belong to Plato) but I am clearly missing 3 of the books somewhere. Below is the name of the philosophers and the books Ive found so far:

<br>

1. Anaxagoras- ?

<br>

2. Democritus- ?

<br>

3. Socrates- ?

<br>

4. Plato- Republic, Timaeus, Apology, Phaedo

<br>

5. Aristotle- De Caelo, Physica, Metaphysica

<br>

6. Descartes- Principles of Philosophy

<br>

7. Spinoza- Ethics

<br>

8. Leibniz- Discourse of Metaphysica

<br>

9. Hume- Dialogues Concerning Natural Religion

<br>

10. Kant- Critique of Pure Reason

<br>

11. Kierkegaard- Concluding Unscientific Postscript

<br>

12. Russell- Problems of Philosophy

<br>

13. Sarte- No Exit

<br>

14. Kitcher- Believing where we cannot prove

I only have 16 books out of the 19. Also can you share one main theme in each that relates to "reality has a beginning a middle and an end", no need for huge explorations
