Could you fine gentlemen give me a shortlist of the basic and most porminent historical philosophers and their works/best translations?
Im looking for a sortof encyclopedia of world philosophy, ideas, opinions, theories and thoughts. To gain general knowledge and broaden my outlook on life, see things from different perspectives etc.
Best regards, /k/.
I would personally try to find local group in the area the are enthusiast and join them in the discussion.
at least I tend to learn far more through the active discussion I join in rather then just self reading which serve mainly more common ground in the discussion.
Awful and unnecessary
Bloated, and arbitrary and lopsided in its bloat, would be great if it had explanation. I like Boehme too, but most 19 year olds looking to "get into philosopy" probably need an explanation.
Full of horrible translations, unexplained controversial choices
Well-meaning, but some awful choices and poor explanations
These are all memes OP; just read Russell's Problems and Philosophy and you're solid as an intro.
Honestly though, you can afford to skip around as long as you don't overreact to new insights.
