If you want to explore philosophy for the first (or maybe second) time, this book is a good places to start.
Plato and a Platypus Walk into a Bar: Funny, easy to catch philosophy ideas
For Asian readers, those jokes may seem not culture-fit. They would be more relevant to Western society. I did not get the point of some jokes. But the good point is Asian readers can learn philosophy and Western culture at the same time. However, knowing some basic philosophy ideas before reading would be better than knowing nothing. If you do not know anything about philosophy before, I suggest Sophie’s World.
In the language perspective, we have different understanding while reading the same word in different languages. Our brain’s reactions are not the same while reading a word in one language, to the translated version of that word in another one. While reading this book, I realized that language is an important part of philosophy studying. Wanting to know more about philosophy, I will need to proficient at academic English. Wanting to learn more about some philosophers, I will have to know German. Using Vietnamese for these purposes is easy for beginning steps. But to go further, I will face a wall which is hard to overcome. And language proficiency is the key to go to next taller walls.
