Re: Anyone know any cool/interesting Philosophers? - June 4th 2011, 07:35 PM

I agree that Friedrich Nietzsche is interesting - but for other options...

Marcus Tullius Cicero - One of my favorites, He is getting tattooed on my chest. (well, a quote of his.)
Here is a link to all the info you will need for a project on him - LINK

Also... Marcus Aurelius is good.
Link to his BIO. <CLICK>
Link to his works <CLICK>

Lao Tzu is another favorite - <CLICK>



The above might be too "heavy" for you as they are typically analyzed in 300 - 400 level university courses, so if you find it painstaking to make sense of the text, try...

The Hagakure (The book of the samurai) by: Yamamoto Tsunetomo (translation by William Scott Wilson)
This will probably require you to purchase the book.


Lastly...

Confucius is probably relatively easy (by comparison) to understand and get a paper out of. <CLICK>


If you want more - let me know. There are soooooooooo.... many.


You know you are on the precipice of greatness when you feel joy, fear, and the butterflies of change all at the same time.
