Keith,

Your blog posts about philosophy interest me. I feel, though, that there is some fundamental knowledge about this field that I am missing. My sense is that there are some basics I just do not know that are preventing me from fully appreciating some of what you write and the writings of others that you refer to on your blog. It is as if I am on a journey, with a clear destination in mind, and I have a compass, but lack the knowledge of how it is used. Can you suggest some reading that would get me started in the right direction?

Regards,
Steve
