What are you reading?

It's been sort of sleepy around here recently. How's everyone doing? Reading anything new?

On my big not-read-yet book stack, there's Husserl's Ideas I. Still a long way to finish it, but I was more than impressed on his refutation of na´ve empiricism. It's one the clearest I read, which isn't particurlay important given that I didn't reach much philosophical treatise. That said, I'm gonna keep this passage to give it to the "scientist-ist" that are too many in my immediate social circle.

Moreover, I've also in my backpack a book from a french "skeptic" on evolution, - which isn't too bad honestly, its "new-atheist" side put away -, and "Comment peut tout-s'effondrer", which is a analysis of our modern civilization by two scientist, and its doomed collapse, or so the authors think.

I shouldn't probably read many books at once: I always end by forgetting where I was.

I suppose I'm a bit late but I've been reading Feser's Scholastic Metaphysics.

I am listening to it.  ;D I have the book at home, but I downloaded the audio version Machinephilosophy has recorded, to have somethiong to listen to when I┤m driving. I still stuck at Vallicella┤s book, not only is it the hardest work I have ever been working through, but it deserves the such a detailed treatment, especially if one wants to really understand what the modern discourse on existence is lacking.
