Incurably curious

Post by Wheels2004 »

My name is Bryan. I have been interested in philosophy for about a year, and I can’t believe it’s taken me 35 years to find it. Everything about it fascinates me, but I don’t have any academic background in it, so please be gentle with me as I learn. Lol

Welcome. I enjoy this forum very much and I hope you do, too. My 2 cents is that you will learn from reading the original texts, but this is a great spot to test your knowledge when you think you have learned something.

I recommend this guy very highly before, during or after digging into the texts:

He has great videos on many widely varied works of philosophy, in case you don't share my interest in Epictetus (but if you do, that series is well worth the time!). Just search youtube for " Sadler Sartre" or "Sadler Kierkegaard" or whatever might interest you, and you will probably find a very understandable interpretation from him.
"If determinism holds, then past events have conspired to cause me to hold this view--it is out of my control. Either I am right about free will, or it is not my fault that I am wrong."
