Hi! I'm new in this group and my first post in group forum(I'm really excited :D). I've always been baffled by people talking about philosophy and their fundamentals, any books that explain well and relatively good read on philosophy? I know books are interesting in general but it has to be not too hard for the reader to fathom. I always appreciate a book that generates much after thought and provokes thinking. Thanks. Would appreciate any response

I'm currently reading an introductory book called. http://www.amazon.com/Does-Center-Hold-Introduction-Philosophy/dp/0073535753 its a college level coursebook but is very accesible with illustrations on nearly every page and a conversational approach to the entire text. It should be in your local library.

Ill give you a list of books that will flop your socks off. The one book.... Is really a challenge.
But i think a good place to start, of course, is at the beginning. Read socrates, plato, Aristotle, Descartes, karl marx, and a good one is by phillip zumbardo (called the Lucifer Effect). Havent had to much time to read it, but i did buy it and from what i have read and know about it already its really good.
