I've not read that. And I'm a bit of a metal fanatic, I like everything except most power metal, nu-metal and metalcore
Oh, thank you! I'll certainly have to look at some of those books. I read Sophie's World by Jostein Gaarder a while ago, and I found that rather interesting.
I wouldn't say I have a distinct taste in any particular type of metal, haha, I listen to a lot of random stuff. It probably would have helped if I'd stuck with music lessons...
Sorry for the late reply. Not sure what I'm going to do with my degree, it's not exactly vocational, but they say that if you have one, then you can go into other fields, philosophers are apparently in higher demand than one might think.
As for the subject itself, it comes in many flavours, philosophy of language, metaphysics, ethics, religion, science, mind, AI, and more.
To see if you like it or not I would recommend a few books: The problems of philosophy by Bertrand Russell. A good introduction to some philosophical problems (!). Descartes - meditations on first philosophy - One of the most important philosophers, who kind of set the scene for most philosophy to come afterwards. On top of that, just introductory books. In places like the works they normally have entry level books about philosophical issues and such like, that are easy for non philosophers.
What metal do you like?
I'm not entirely sure how I reached your page, but I read your About Me and I was somewhat interested by the fact that you study Philosophy. I was hoping you could give me an insight into what exactly you do for such a course. Does it work towards any particular end goal? Are any advanced qualifications required beforehand? I very much enjoy trying to think of situations in new and complex ways, but I'm not entirely sure if this is something I would pursue, so I thought I should look into it.
I like metal, too... lol. \m\ >.< /m/
