Yesterday I picked up from a used book store an old book-Philosophy, Something to Believe In by Richard Paul Janaro (1975). 2 years ago I read Existentialism, A Guide for the Perplexed by Steven Earnshaw (2006). Many years ago I read Camus and Nietzsche after Thomas Merton mentioned them in his journals. Then I met a colleague who suggested Nietzsche when I asked him which  philosopher I should read.

Years before and in between years I became acquainted  with Plato and Aristotle. I’m just a student fascinated by philosophical ideas. Very slowly, I think, I’m learning.
