"Some of my most bored moments have been listening to, or trying to read, those who think that the more clever and obscure they sound, the more profound their thought."

Just bought myself 'Teach Yourself Philosophy of Religion' this weekend and I've found so far very accessible and lucid. I'll be checking out more of his titles when time permits.


I'm reading Mel Thmopson's excellent "Philosophers Behaving Badly", a most enjoyable and straightforward read. It might, partly, be his revenge on those who bored him...
