I read a philosophy book once, but it gave me a headache.


Not reall-l-ly! Bet I fooled ya. After my first few acid experiences, I left pre-medical science studies to become a full (no minor) philosophy major at C.W. Post campus of Long Island University. Tuli Kupferberg of the Fugs used to sit in on some of my classes with Arthur Lothstein (an original 60's hippy). I learned much under Bob Brier, who can be found frequently on TLC making the first mummy in 2000 years, or otherwise introducing mummies (he is an Egyptologist, but also co-published with J. B. Rhine [the Father of Parapsychology] at Duke University). I also had a memorable tutorial under the only theology prof on campus, David Leahy, when the whole class except me dropped his course on Mysticism. We read the Enneads of Plotinus and then compared Plotinus to Dionysus the Areopagite's Mystical Theology. Undergrad years were the best!

I bet I'm speaking Greek here without knowing how to speak Greek - ancient or modern.

That would be me. Sort of.

I'd like to read a book on philosophy, but right now i've got a few others that are higher up on my priority list... and those higher up are under my school books I must read.  :frown:

Could you reccomend one for a complete beginner in philosophy?

Anything that is similar to  this.  Just look at the table of contents.

Also, I found some used (very cheap) copies of Solomon's "Introducing Philosophy"
I highly recommend that one. :wink:

  yeah, take intro to philosophy.  best damn class there is, for me anyway.  The teacher is funny as hell.  We are learning some of Aristotle, Socrates, Kant and Sartre.  We are studing their ideas in class, pretty basic but fascinating the way the teacher works. :confused:      :smirk: :grin:

Mr Mushrooms,
Funny you should ask. I've just obtained the greatest book to add to my collection:
The Taoist Classics which are full manuscipts of the Chuang-tsu, Tao te ching, and Wen-tzu. Taoist philosophy, a lifelong endeavor, has changed my life completely.

This is actually no surprise that you have a significant background in philosophy.

I have a few plans for the future which is why I started this thread. Perhaps when I have a little more time we can discuss some of the various points laid down by philosophers and where we agree and disagree. I am also going to suggest a discussion of some particular book that we all agree and take the discussion to the Literary Forum where the pace keeps most threads at the top of the page for weeks. (Sorry OoD)

As I ready myself for this I will be re-reading Fredrich. From the laudanum he is given by some I must have missed a few points. My opinion of him is not high but I am willing to change it if I have reason to. Since you first sang his praises I have been intrigued.

Cheers,

This may sound funny but a simple book such as Idiots guide to Philosophy is a great start for those unfamiliar with the subject.

Sclorch has recommended some good books too but some of them might prove difficult for a complete beginner.

Cheers,

The Nature of Usefulness ...

Thirty spokes will converge
In the hub of a wheel;
But the use of the cart
Will depend on the part
Of the hub that is void.
With a wall all around
A clay bowl is molded;
But the use of the bowl
Will depend on the part
Of the bowl that is void.

Cut out windows and doors
In the house as you build;
But the use of the house
Will depend on the space
In the walls that is void.

So advantage is had
From whatever is there;
But usefulness rises
From whatever is not.

-The Way-

Yeah, right.

Thanks for the background.  Now that I know your formal training I will know better how to disarm you. :wink:  lol

What branchs of philosophy are you most comfortable with outside of your usual topics?

What is your opinion of the ancients?  Aristotle?  Plato?  Socrates?  Sophists?

Has philosophy improved in recent times?

Please keep your answers to short outbursts. :wink:

Cheers,

I was joking. But I am serious about this thread not getting to far off track. I probably won't reply to off-topic remarks in this thread.
