This is because philosophy addresses those questions about which we all wonder.
Philosophy is the contemplation of the fundamental nature of knowledge, morality, existence, and the universe as a whole. You may wonder why you would want to get involved with philosophy. Simply put, it's not as hard as you may think, and you are probably interested in it even if you have not realized.

The trick is to find books that are written for general readers and not for people with specific knowledge. For example, you probably wouldn't want to get a college textbook for an advanced class, as such a book would assume that you have already read and studied certain works. Instead you will want to look for an "introduction to philosophy" book or just look for a book with pure philosophy, such as those written by philosophers such as Philippe Lacoue-Labarthe.

Though you may wonder if philosophy will interest you, if you think about it you probably already are interested in it. This is because philosophy addresses those questions about which we all wonder. For example, most of us have asked, "what is the meaning of life?" Most of us have asked, "what happens when we die?" Most of us have asked, "can we really know anything?" Philosophy simply consists of asking and attempting to answer questions such as those.
