Favorite philosophy book?

I’ve been on the hunt for more books to read. Very interested in learning more about metaphysics.

If you enjoy existentialism “Thus spoke Zarathustra” by Nietzsche has no peers.

@Straylight Besides Schopenhauer, Nietzsche did define and defend his version of existentialism. This was before the modern French version which Camus and Sartre devised but Nietzsche and later Kafka described our absurd world in detail before Camus.

@Pfuzylogic I tried reading [i]Zarathustra[/i], got about a third of the way through and decided I have no idea what he was tring to say. Someone told me I should read it in tandem with [i]Beyond Good and Evil[/i], but I haven't done it yet.

Nietzsche tries donning the garb of a priest even though he hates that profession the most.

Meditations by Marcus Aurelius
Rambler · M
For me, the book of Ecclesiastes; Thomas Nagel, Mind and Cosmos; and for an approach via science, Carlo Rovelli, Seven Brief Lessons of Physics .
No longer human by Osamu Dazai.

Depends how heavy you want it. I like books that are also stories like Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance or Sophie's World.

@HoraceGreenley Bold of you to assume I didn’t attend every session of Sunday school

@Misspotat I never said I assume you didn't
