How’s it going everyone! Welcome to My Philosophy Book. Ever since I was a child, I have thought extensively about life, reality, existence, and the unknown. I quickly discovered that there are countless books that go over such topics, so I decided to make it easier for everyone with the same passion as me to find them.
Here, you will find written material going over pretty much anything you can think that has to do with philosophy, as well as some personal thoughts of mine about various topics.
For as long as I can remember (since around age 9-10), like many kids, there have been many things I have questioned about the world around me. The more I thought about it, the more I wanted to learn. And the more I learned, the more I realized how much I didn’t know.
Ironically, I used to absolutely despise reading. It just wasn’t really my thing. But as I got older, growing up in the age of technology, I started researching many things pertaining to the nature of reality and stumbled across various different works of literature by various known philosophers like Plato, Aristotle, Aquinas, etc. I couldn’t help but be incredibly interested in figuring out which one of their theories were correct and the implications they would have on our lives.
I was (and am) also extremely fascinated by the various studies of science growing up. I even strongly considered becoming a physicist while I was in high school. Ironically, however, I was never exactly an honor-roll student when it came to my sciences classes (and came very close to failing all of them). Even still, as I got older, I developed more and more of an interest in learning about the physical world, which only served to fuel the flames of my curiosity for why everything was the way it was.
In other words, the more I learned the “how,” the more I wanted to learn the “why.” So now I’m completely devoted to learning as much as I can and hopefully find some answers.
THE JOURNEY BEGINS
Everyone’s gotta start somewhere, right? So for those of you just starting to get into philosophy, those who are looking for some extra ideas to get the gears turning, or those who simply need to find the right textbook for their philosophy class, I’ve affiliated myself with various book-selling companies to organize and review the best philosophical readings on the web and make it easier to find whatever you’re looking for.
What is the meaning of life? What is consciousness? Is there an afterlife? Are we living in the Matrix? Questions like these are what I hope to find the answer to during this lifetime. And I know I’m not the only one out there that wants this. So hopefully, some sort of genius out there with the ability and desire to find these answers stumbles across this website, gets inspired by some philosophical reading they find here, and figures it all out for me. Consider this my way of helping you help me.
