I am reading my philosophy textbook preparing for my philosophy course started last week. I found that my reading speed is much slower than I expected on this differcult materials. I can only read about 20 pages an hour, instead of 50 pages per hour on english novels, or even 100 pages per hour on chinese novels. So I need about 5 hours to finish the 100 pages weekly readings. This course is about introduction to philosophy, but mostly cover modern philosophy regarding the question on what do we know, which is epistemology. Other topics such as ancient and medival philosophy, values theory and metaphysics plays a minor role in thie course. I don’t have much reflection right now since I just start taking the course. Hopefully, this course will lead me to think more about some real yet useless questions.
