  1. Immersion in philosophy is better to start with textbooks, for example, with the textbook “History of Philosophy” Vasiliev, Krotov, Bugay. There you can get a basic layer of knowledge, having which, you can more easily immerse yourself in individual philosophical schools, trends and epochs.

    And then you can study philosophers by epoch, starting with Antiquity.

  2. If you really want to pursue philosophy, then start with the founding fathers: Aristotle, Plato. If you are not interested in the ancients and are drawn to spiritual perfection, then you can turn to St. Augustine or Thomas Aquinas. But in fact, philosophy has many directions. In Eastern philosophy alone, one can wander all one's life as if in a forest. There is a French school, there is a German school, there is a Russian school, and there is Carlos Castaneda – also philosophy.

    I advise you to read only a little and choose the direction that attracts you more: metaphysics, epistemology, ethics, aesthetics, political philosophy and the philosophy of science…… The Bible, Torah, Koran-this is also philosophy.

  3. Sure. Take biographies of famous philosophers. Plato. Aristotle. Start here with the ancient Greek philosophers. You can also take a Philosophical Dictionary, a Philosophical Encyclopedia

  4. And you will not be ill. If you only read it, understand the main thing today, and use it at work and at home, then this is Afanasyev: A Short Course. Dialectical and historical materialism. Fse our philosophers passed the exam on this wonderful textbook. And if you are even sharper, then read G. Geche's “Bible Tales”. You won't regret it.
