I’m currently in school to become a psychotherapist, but I want to integrate philosophy into my practice because I love both philosophy and psychology equally.
With that being said, my knowledge about philosophy is more limited than it should be. I’ve listened to a few Great Courses on Western philosophy, I’ve read Plato’s Republic, read several of Ken Wilber’s books, and listen to podcasts on philosophy. However, I haven’t really gotten deep into the great modern or postmodern works that lead to the Integral/Metamodern philosophies of today and the future.
My current reading list is as follows:
- Ken Wilber - Integral Psychology
- Ken Wilber - Integral Spirituality
- Lawrence Cahoone - From Modernism to Postmodernism
- Steven Best - Postmodern Theory
- Gary Gutting - French Philosophy in the Twentieth Century
- Jean-Francois Lyotard - The Postmodern Condition
- Critical Realism: An Introduction to Roy Bhaskar’s Philosophy (recommended as a pre-metamodern philosopher)
- Whitehead - Process and Reality
- Heidegger - Being and Time
- Bertrand Russel - History of Western Philosophy
What other books would you recommend I read to really understand philosophy, especially as it pertains to the Integral and Metamodern spaces?
Thank you so much for the help!
