Russ 22 July 2017 at 8:38 amSo, to begin, remember this — philosophy is a wide area. I generally tend to read philosophy that lives within the Christian realm and “the classics.” At the same time, there are a number of other areas of reading I also find helpful, history and worldview among them. You might want to look at my goodreads page to get a sense of my reading habits.I have it on my list to add a new section to my 60 books pages to include philosophy (or rather to split philosophy from Christian), and add some of the books in the more philosophy area that I’ve found helpful — I hope to have this done in the next week or two. What I really need to do is find a plugin that will let me build these pages more simply than what I’m doing right now.🙂Russ Antsa 19 July 2017 at 6:45 amgreat Steve 19 July 2017 at 10:20 amAwesome, reminds me of this letter from Seneca https://en.wikisource.org/wiki/Moral_letters_to_Lucilius/Letter_108 Fred Huffman 20 July 2017 at 8:30 pmOne of several fundamental characteristics of successful engineers. Others include reasoning ability, analysis, assessment, invention/innovation. Great piece of advice! NjGuy 24 July 2017 at 3:38 pmso if we really start to think about how to think and at the same time what to think , like motivates me or what problem I like to solve or find a better way of doing something etc etc. I think most basic question is why we do anything or why we are in a profession we are in. Is it just to make ends meet, helping others, trying to make a difference in society, religion may be. like why do anything , what is the purpose , Nature or God provides me food water air for free why do I need to get up every day and earn my living , see the argument is never ending , to me it really comes down to what is my purpose why am I even here and where will go from here , Am I finding my purpose to kill time in this world u know just trying to be busy while I live, even what is life any ways , since we are made of start dust then what really is life or death for that matter , we are just changing shape aren’t we.Comments are closed.
