  • Being and Time:

    • Why I think it’s important:
      • This book saved my life, with its ideas on how we interact with the world (phenomenology) and most importantly how we see death as a mode of interpreting the world. In Being and Time, the book is set up into two central sections or divisions: Development of the thinking self, and the development of thinking self on one’s finitude. In the first part, he gives us an introduction into how we interact with the world, and what kind of beings can interact with the world. His rehashing of classical definitions of the self and consciousness, and being is a form for deconstruction on the traditional definitions of philosophy starting with Plato, setting forth a new way of thinking about the world that hasn’t been done. In the second section, is what inspired me the most is with my interaction with death. When I was going through contemplations with suicide during my immigration cases. How even that form of contemplation would inspire me to look into the world differently, to view the world as a Dasein being in the world When Steve Jobs gave that Stanford speech on how his finitude impacted his revival into the world, I thought of Heidegger immediately and this book.

  • The Apology, Crito, and Phaedo:

    • Why I think it’s important:
      • Today (2/15/16) is the day that Socrates was condemned to death by the Athenian courts, in arguing against the sophist or lawyers, and those who are in power that they are wrong. With accounts giving by Plato in the three Platonic Dialogues: Apology, Crito, and Phaedo. Socrates was my first real teacher, indirectly through the books or what Plato calls “imitations” and shadows, that show me the light of the philosophical world. Here’s a brilliant video showing the great painting when Socrates drank the poison Hemlock, the death-bringer, while at his Socratic way, at peace with the world. As Socrates argues in his peaceful way at the end of The Apology “no evil can happen to a good man, either in life or after death.”, in his view of the good human nature, where the soul is only tainted by life, and lacks that of the good. When the soul enters the realms of the forms, or the heavens, the ultimate ideal, the soul will be back.

      • True difficult: 10, Plato uses a ton of references from Ancient Greek and his other Platonic dialogues. A lot of theorist research this book for their Ph.D
