Hi Risto,

You've done such a thorough job, well done!

One tip I would add under "How to read philosophy" is to read on when something in the book isn't making sense, instead of spending a lot of time trying to make sense of things on the spot. The reason is because, oftentimes, later passages help to clarify what the writer meant by earlier passages, where these earlier passages can be hopelessly hard to understand or precise-ify without having read those later passages.

P.S. I'm new to this forum and would appreciate it if I could get some likes so that I could make a post! Thanks.
