I want to go back to basics.
I want to consider the traditional problems of philosophy (for me) afresh.
I hope to comment on my main points of agreement or disagreement.
I will not be giving expositions of these philosophers – only my main reactions – positive or negative.
Also pointing out anything else particularly important.
First I plan to re-read several general histories of philosophy.
The Romance of Philosophy, by Jacques Choron
The Story of Philosophy, by Will Durant
A History of Western Philosophy, by Bertrand Russell
(I believe these are first three philosophy books I read.)
Philosophy in the Twentieth Century, by A. J. Ayer
A Hundred Years of Philosophy, by John Passmore
A History of Philosophy by Frederick Copleston (Volumes I-IX)
The Philosophers, by Ben-Ami Scharfstein
No doubt, I will get sidetracked at times.
I am already in other books and am in 4 reading groups.
Also, many of the philosophers that I intend to cover will not be covered by these histories.
I will also use primary sources in many cases.
Also, I, no doubt, will find Wikipedia useful to which I make a monthly donation.
Also of use are:
Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy
Internet Encyclopedia of Philosophy
