Philosophical Works

I thoroughly enjoy reading analytical philosophy. "Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance" was amazing and I am working on the Critique of Pure Reason. Any other suggestions?

Has anyone read "the life of pi" ?

Thanks. Coincidentally, I sat next to someone today who was reading the Tao of Pooh, and I asked them about it. Very strange.

Robert Prisig's book was excellent. It's been a number of years since I read it, and I think it's about time I read it again. <br />

I don't really have any recommendations for you, alas. My reading has been directed in different paths.<br />
<br />
One resource I found to be a good primer for more formal study that didn't cost anything are the philosophy pages (although these are not much use if you have ever formally studied philosophy or read primer text books).<br /><br />
<br />
The best thought provoking pop-culture work of recent years, for me, has to be Battlestar Galactica (new series), without a doubt. It's a vibrant and wide ranging work that provides prompts for everything from the metaphysics to the ethics of governance, from the nature of identity to the nature of purpose. Best watched in conjunction with the TelevisionWithoutPity recaps.<br />
<br />
The most entertainin thing I've read in recent years would have to be the Tao of Pooh. The workings of the Tao without heavy mysticism, instead brought back to a philosophy of life and quantum uncertainty.<br />
<br />
Then again, you could always just check out:<br /><br />

Ironic, huh?
