Comte de St.-Germain wrote:Few philosophy degrees require you to read Nietzsche. That said, rejecting the idea that it's the 'end-all and be-all' in philosophy when it has not been suggested by anyone here reeks of weasely nonsense. In other words, I don't doubt your three degrees, but -- as always -- what values they instil in a person. :lol:

All I'm saying is that Nietzche doesn't really fit into the OP request for good primers or essential reading, despite taking up so much of the discussion here.

And you've done it twice now, without establishing what you mean by it. If you feel that Nietzsche is uninteresting as a primer or essential reading, why not indicate it here, with examples of what might be a good primer in contrast? That would actually be educative, rather than merely informative of your opinion - which is rather trivial I'm sure you'll agree.
