Literature suggestions prospective Pre-Master's students

We have composed a list of literature suggestions meant for students who want to start in one of the Philosophy Pre-Master's programs at Tilburg University and who want to read up on philosophy because they have no experience with or background in philosophy. These are merely suggestions for students who want to read philosophy; it is not part of the curriculum, nor is it required for students to read these works before starting the Pre-Master's program. Teachers will not assume you have read all this and there will be no exam questions on any of this.
