In our previous Daily Productive Sharing 107 - 20210112, the author suggested that after we enter a new field, we find the map and then follow it to find time-tested books to read. Then when we want to understand how to read, Schopenhauer may be a good choice. Today's sharing is Schopenhauer's insights on reading.

Welcome to forward, thanks for sharing :)

For me, reading has always been about this website’s tagline: Mastering the best of what other people have already figured out.

When we read, another person thinks for us: we merely repeat his mental process.

We need to digest, synthesize, and organize the thoughts of others if we are to understand.

This is how we acquire foundational knowledge. The knowledge that allows us to pull forth relevance when reading and bring it to consciousness.

Any kind of important book should immediately be read twice, partly because one grasps the matter in its entirety the second time, and only really understands the beginning when the end is known; and partly because in reading it the second time one’s temper and mood are different, so that one gets another impression; it may be that one sees the matter in another light.
