I was wondering if we could possibly have a thread about recommendations for Philosophy.
Personally I have quite some interest in it, but since I didn't go to school for it and never really pursued it at the time, I sometimes feel lost as to which philosophers I should look for, the order and relations they have between each other's way of thinking and, most importantly, which works I should read.
I've been on /lit/ for a while now, use the wiki a whole lot, as well as #bookz, and even though philosophy has always been discussed a lot, but no charts or images for recommendations of works or even some general guide of said works were really made. I might be mistaken, of course, and this exists, so I'd be grateful if someone could post it, should that be the case.
If it really doesn't exist, then could we maybe make it? Maybe something as simple as naming the author, his most noteworthy work or works, keeping in mind how well they can teach someone who is new to all of this, or maybe isn't really bright or intelligent like you guys.
Any quick notes on one author's works being related in any particular way to another author's would be neat, but not necessary.
I chose this image because it's brought me a lot of happiness over the last year or so. It's from the wiki
