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.

If you get one as "the world as will and idea" that is trash

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.

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.

2018-02-07 03:54:01 UTC  

@Deleted User Awesome! Who's the author?

2018-02-07 03:55:57 UTC

This book will have IE cards in it for the next Barnes and noble run.

@Deleted User, just got a copy! I'm pretty stoked to start it considering your high praises.
