What introduced you to philosophy? posted 11 February 2005 in Philosophy DiscussionWhat introduced you to philosophy? by Anonymous, Subdidact

Started in my early teens wondering if other people might see colors differently than me and everyone just agreed on terms.

At some point reading Nietzsche was the "in" thing, other germans to a greater extent relative to their public obscurity. Someone threw buddhism my way and that counts... or will, when we add it up. A dash of the Upanishads... some zen and a sprinkling of pulp sci-future rhetoric... "Illuminatii" and all that.

Then the damn frenchmen... Baudrillard and Virillio, Foucault, Lyotard... the whole semiotexte crew. Bah.

The field of philosphy? I don't know. Nevermind.

Starting over with Aristotle. Be back someday. view post
