@Adam Cuniglio,
We don't normally "tutor" but some of us may be sufficiently familiar with the literature to suggest appropriate references which give angles on "answers".

@Adam Cuniglio,
What Fresco said. If you list some specific problems you're having or ask specific questions about the reading, a number of us would be glad to try and help you understand.

@Adam Cuniglio,
I note that one review of that Miller book reads:

Quote:
This popular choice for introductory philosophy courses offers primary source readings woven into a text that is organized by key questions in philosophy. The discussion of each question is presented in a logical and historical light, showing connections, roots, and influences. The clarity of the presentation and the successful student pedagogical aids provide an accessible, guided introduction to philosophy for college students.


You need to give it a try, but it may be that philosophy is simply "not for you".

@Adam Cuniglio,
Yes. That's understood. I suggest that you start considering why philosophy might be considered a useful adjunct to the study of history. What for example is the nature of "knowledge" or "evidence" or "context". What are the origins of the concept of "rights". etc.
From your posts, you appear to be approaching the subsidiary subject as an intellectual burden, but that implies your current understanding of the basis of your main subject is superficial.
