Who is discussed in the english speaking world?

Post by Rodion » Thu May 08, 2014 7:09 pm

I study philosophy - as you see on my website - in germany and read many german texts but i want to improve my english skills and want to be able to discuss the latest philosophical issues, even if they are not expressed in my mother tongue yet. So i want to read philosophical textes in english. And i would really like to read new stuff. What do you read? I heard and read stuff of Nozick, Foot, Bonjour and Rawls because there are german translations allready, but what do you read now? Can you suggest anything?

Best Regards,
R

A quite interesting philosophy book for general readers is "Plato at the Googleplex: Why Philosophy Won't Go Away" by Rebecca Goldstein. A very engaging, well-written exploration of Plato's ideas applied to modern situations. Well worth the investment of time to read.

I too have read Plato at the Googleplex. I quite liked it; it was interesting.
