For philosophy I would highly recommend "Meditations" by Marcus Aurelius. It's pretty much all of the emperor's writings compiled into one book. It's an essential text for Stoicism.
The World as Will and Representation by Arthur Schopenhauer
If you get one as "the world as will and idea" that is trash
Edited to ruin your mind
Don't just sit down and read this one. One of THE great Roman emperors and one if the greatest stoic philosophers. Read this I'm stints. Every few days pick it up and read a few passages
I found this hard to get through tbh. But it's worth a read and one of the great classics of western literature
Tf when you used to be a classics major and had to read all this stuff.
Hello. Just wanted to say that I studied Philosophy for my undergrad and would be happy to help with recommendations.
If anyone is looking for an introductory text to Heidegger, this essay series is a good place to start.
This guy is by no means a professional author, but he is an excellent example of a normal young man who saw that society was lacking and slowly turned towards embracing his heritage and identity. Book is good because it isn't super convoluted like some works and really speaks to young people.
Excellent passage. Is that Schmitt?
Ortega y Gasset
Just finished this book and....OMG this guy was a pan-Europeanist who rejected communism and petty nationalism!
It's called, Revolt of the Masses, and I definitely recomend it. I am surprised I had never heard of it before finding it at Barnes and Noble. People in our movment should be reading this.
Jose Ortega y Gasset
He's a Spanish Philosopher
This book will have IE cards in it for the next Barnes and noble run.
