    1) yes i do, though its not the main area i read up on.

    2) i dont have a favourite yet as im still reading around i havent reached a point where i can say " i prefer x to y because.."

    3) i find i agree with large chunks of what i read. i like to read some eastern philosophy as well as western so its nice to get some really different views on things.

    I find it gets out of hand rather quickly

    As far as I know, forgiveness is for the benefit of the person doing the forgiving, not the one being forgiven

    i like thinking but not really an avid reader of other peoples work as i try and come up with a philosphy on their philosophy and get tangled up and angry

    "cogito ergo sum"

    i like that and refer to it when rambling onto myself

    i prefer trying to understand the BS logic of people who are famous for other things who then tell us their philosphocial thoughts

    I don't read much philosophy, because the philosophy which I have read I have found to be trite. Perhaps I have been reading the wrong stuff? Who knows

    I have been reading a lot of philosophy lately. Some of it has been interesting, timeless and agreeable, other bits either less interesting or not so relevant in modern times.
    The scary thing is that I'm finding myself agreeing on a whole host of issues that I would not expect and it has really opened up my mind to the way other 'criminals' think.

    For example, I've been reading "Mein Kampf" by Hitler, and I'm quite surprised by how much I agree with him. Obviously I don't agree with his racial policies, but it gives some deep insights into the motivation behind some of his actions.

    For those who are interested but can't be bothered to trawl through pages or books, here is a good link:

    Haven't read deeply of any one philosopher's work, but read several books which give overviews of many philosophers. Particularly enjoy Julian Baggini's work and also an excellent book called The Philosophy Gym by Stephen Law.
