Listening to Philosophy to Stay Awake

51G5cOxCB2L._SY344_BO1,204,203,200_  So for the past week or so, I’ve been listening to the audiobook of Heidegger and  Hippo Walk Through Those Pearly Gates in order to stay awake during my 1 hr drive home after my 10 hr night shift and it seems to be working… Interesting that a book on the philosophy of death can keep me awake, but it definitely keeps my brain occupied which is what I need. Very interesting book so far, I’m about halfway through it. Taking it slow because I need it to last as long as possible until I find something to listen to next. Not only does it talk about various philosopher’s views on death, it combines with it the philosophy of consciousness and describes some of the basic areas such as dualism, physicalism, not much on materialism so far or panpsychism. The authors are interesting and include many jokes as well, all of which I don’t quite get, but that’s ok, still and interesting book so far and I will post an update when I finish.
