How familiar are you with philosophy in general? Please be specific as to your experience and preferred areas of philosophy, if any.
While I don't have much formal background, I consider philosophy a major hobby of mine and a strong influence on my life. My favorite areas of study are epistemology, logic, and ethics. I strongly prefer the analytic approach to philosophy, although I do appreciate some Continental philosophy. I have some understanding of modern logic and metaethics. I'm a strong fan of JD Trout and Michael Bishop's "strategic reliablism" in epistemology. Meta-ethically, I'm aligned more with the ethical anti-realists. How I harmonize ethical anti-realism with Stoicism's virtue ethics would take some explaining, but it's not as hard as it may first appear.
