Perhaps I. Kant. Perhaps I can.

The reflection is symbolic. The grasping is symbolic (with the hand, not the mind).

 

I read Sophie's Choice first. It was philosophy for dummies (like me). Then I read Brian McGee's Confessions of a Philosopher. It inspired me to buy these (and Popper and Schopenhauer, too). So here I am, ready to try these tough books. I am about 20 pages into Hume's book and he's quite readable...but not as fast as a Cormac McCarthy novel...I get more out of these types of books than the Bible or Koran or the Gita or Eckhart Tolle....but, that's just me. Check these guys out on Wikipedia, too.

 

BTW, I purchased these at Hedengren's bookstore in Stockholm, Sweden. Hedegren's carries the biggest selection of books in English in Stockholm and, therefore, all of Sweden.

  

David Hume is a Scotish philosopher. Immanuel Kant is German. Both are singular intellects which only come along every thousand years or so. My kind of "prophets."
