Hello, friends. Care to dabble in the study of Philosophy?
I’ve listed four suggestions to add to your summer reading. If you have read any of these please feel free to leave comments and reflections. Enjoy!
- What Does It All Mean? by Thomas Nagel. Recommended to accompany any Introduction to Philosophy course. It is also a fantastic overview of basic philosophical questions.
- Existentia Africana by Lewis R. Gordon. I had the pleasure of hearing Dr. Gordon give a keynote address at a recent conference. His goal is to broaden the discipline of Philosophy.
- Sophie’s World by Jostein Gaarder. This is a lovely “story” of philosophy. It is charming and written in such a way to ease one into major philosophical concepts.
- Confessions of a Philosopher by Bryan Magee. (I’m currently in the throes of reading this autobiography.)
