Philosophies centered on epistemology and exercises in logic are not always the most enthralling, but Ockham is good reading in order to keep one's deductive reasoning sharp. Aquinas is very similar, as are most of the medieval philosophers. They usually tackle the same questions without necessarily coming to the same conclusions. The Aristotelian language does wear on the patience from time to time. I'm more of a Platonist, but I am willing to grant Aristotle some amount of respect. ( )
