Not reading alone, but apprehension, understanding and usefulness are the main motives of my interest in books. That approach accompanied my whole political and philosophical life. I have built a great and extensive library so as to have immediately to hand what is becoming a subject of interest, says Mr Boris Zala, Member of the European Parliament.
Then I have a second line of my approach: Long-term reading and a study plan. It comprises my standing subjects and passions that sometimes bring about results in my own works as an author. The last such a work is my book about the basic values that may create a comprehensive worldview of Europeanism. Reading is a way of everyday life, it structures my daily time and of course it requires a strong ability to concentrate your mind. Jürgen Habermas became a distinguished political philosopher. His considerations of European and cosmopolitan rules are, despite my often differing views, very inspiring and have required the rethinking of all traditional prejudices and biases, added Mr Zala.
