Philosophy nerd alert

Here's a pretty old legacy post from the blog archives of Geekery Today; it was written about 21 years ago, in 2001, on the World Wide Web.

Have I mentioned how much I am drooling over my reading list for History of Philosophy III: 19th & 20th Century Philosophy? Read it and weep (I know I will when I am spending hours on single pages of Hegel):

  • Immanuel Kant, Critique of Pure Reason
  • Immanuel Kant, Prolegomena to Any Future Metaphysics
  • Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel, Phenomenology of Spirit
  • Arthur Schopenhauer, The World as Will and Representation
  • Friedrich Nietzsche, The Portable Nietzsche (ed. Walter Kauffman)
  • William James, Essays in Radical Empiricism
  • Martin Heidegger, Basic Writings
  • Ludwig Wittgenstein, Tractatus Logico-Philosophicus
  • Ludwig Wittgenstein, Philosophical Investigations
  • Individual xeroxed articles from Frege and Bertrand Russell

Now, one semester is only barely enough time to start talking about the Critique of Pure Reason or the Phenomenology of Spirit in any depth, so we will be moving really quickly and glossing over a lot. But it’s all OK: I’ll get the chance to dip into a lot of amazing work that I haven’t had the opportunity to until now, and when I need some more meat on my studies, I can take the Kant seminar that Dr. Jolley is offering next semester! Rock on!
