Hello,

I've been reading the forum a for a couple of hours today and was compelled (& also coerced) to join. After reading some literature recently (Hermann Hesse) I was sparked into a renewed interest in philosophy, which lead me here. I currently work full-time in a management/administration job but am contemplating going back to university to finish my BA. I spent 18 months studying Religious Studies, Math and English Lit before going through a rough patch in life and dropping out. I would like to one day return and complete my BA in Religious Studies and Philosophy if all works out.

My general and philosophical interestests are obviously linked:
-main philosophical interests are aesthetics & religion
-personal interests include music, literature, art, creative writing and history

I'm interested in Religious Studies and Philosophy of Religion, but from a secural rather than theological point of view. I do have my own religious views but I'm more interested in discussing the phenomenon, facets & manifestations of religion than personal beliefs.

I look forward to reading further and participating at some point.

@boagie,
Siddhartha was great. I first read that book in high school when I was first developing an interest in philosophy.

Glad to see you on the forums.
