Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
I completely agree.  He was a brilliant writer and thinker, and a store could easily have his works in forty different sections, unlike 99.9% of writers.  It is a lot more simple to stuff his work in the philosophy section, though.  I have a bad knee.  It would be a pain to go running all over the store looking for a writer's work.  One of Keynes's first books was A Treatise on Probability, which was, of course, placed in the economics section, despite having very little, if anything, to do with economics.  But he's known for economic theory, so the store threw it in there.

Look on the bright side: At least the stores sell Mills books there.  I was furious, back when I read The General Theory and Friedman's Monetary History, because not one bookstore in the city had either book.  Easily the two most famous economics book on the 20th Century, but no one had them.  They certainly had plenty of copies of The (friggin') Da Vinci Code, though.

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
