  1. From a textbook on philosophy. Choose any one that suits your taste. First get acquainted with the basic concepts, with the main philosophical trends, their ideas and representatives, and then delve into the part that interests you.

  2. By pure chance, the works of Gaius Suetonius Tranquillus, The Lives of the Twelve Caesars, and the Letters of Seneca were obtained. They opened the way to Roman and Greek philosophy. And then it started…

  3. I had a book, The World of Philosophy, a two-volume collection of excerpts from various philosophers, sorted by ” problems of philosophy.” I don't remember how I got my hands on it, but I started selectively reading what I could understand and what was interesting. First, we got a set of Hume, Condillac and for some reason Fourier. Locke was also interesting, but too hard to write. Then somehow the others caught up.

  4. “A History of Western Philosophy” by Bertrand Russell. He is an outstanding philosopher himself, while commenting on the works of his colleagues quite impartially. The book is written in an accessible language and tells in detail about all major areas of philosophical thought, including discussions of Plato, Socrates, Aristotle and other great philosophers among themselves. A worthwhile item.
