    Is anyone here interested in philosophy? My favorite period is 19th Century Idealism, and my favorite philosopher to study is Hegel. I also have an interest in Ayn Rand, especially her ethics and aesthetics.

    Some of my favorite thinkers/writers who are not strictly philosophers include Ralph Waldo Emerson, Graham Hancock, Terence McKenna, and, of course, Tolkien!

    The philosophy work I'm reading right now is Hegel's Science of Logic, and I've also been reading selections from Bertrand Russell's History of Western Philosophy.

    How about you all?

    I'm not super well-read in philosophy, but I did read Russell's history and enjoyed it a lot! Enough so that I've considered reading it a second time...

    Another philosophy book I've enjoyed is On Desire by William Irvine.
