At the start of this year, I had planned to get through a great list of books. So far, I have only got through a few. I had managed to finish Beyond Good and Evil with relative ease and found much of what was contained within the book to be illuminating to my understanding of things. For instance, I very much enjoyed an aphorism (as it links well with my understanding of Nietzsche's work and how he approached things) found within the first chapter 'On the prejudices of philosophers' for its critique on how interpretations are applied onto things and on how even when the thing being interpreted is the same for all parties, there still exist different takes on it. The end remark summed it up gracefully: "Granted, this is only an interpretation too – and you will be eager enough to make this objection? – well then, so much the better." Other than that, I plan to get through (in no particular order): In terms of philosophy: Joyous Science by Friedrich Nietzsche Thus Spoke Zarathustra by Friedrich Nietzsche Will to Power by Friedrich Nietzsche Philosophical Investigations by Ludwig Wittgenstein Lacan by Lionel Bailly Introduction to Metaphysics by Henri Bergson In terms of history: Hagarism by Patrica Crone et al (re-read) From Believers to Muslims by Fred Donner (re-read) Dead Tradition by Ze'ev Maghen The Canon of the New Testament by Bruce Metzger (re-read) Historia Ecclesiastica by Eusebius I will keep you posted.
