Look at the OP image, the guy on the right is me and the guy on the left is you reading the philosophical books given by this guide. This means this guide is just a guide on what to read.
Hello /lit/ it's me again with the /lit/ guide to Western Philosophy.
Between this thread and the last thread alot more grammar and format editing has been done, a big one being the complaint of color coding used. Also despite proclaiming German Idealism was finished but further admendments were made!
>Changes in German Idealism section
Further sentencing errors and missing ISBNs were corrected
Minor update to Schelling
Book 014043335X was added as an cheaper alternative to the T.M knox editions in "FURTHER READING ON HEGEL"
Information on Goethe and Holderin were added to "FURTHER READINGS ON GERMAN IDEALISM".
In the last thread I also asked for improvements to the guide and I got one! The excellent post by anon the Medieval guy can be viewed here
The core programme of only ST Aquinas and ST Augustine in the Medieval Philosophy has not been changed, but now it has been expanded upon due thanks to the "divine illumination" of anon the Medieval guy.
This changed the one sentence mentioning of other important thinkers
>There’s also Duns Scotus, Ockham and Pierre Abélard and so on for more theological thought
to what's new in the Medieval section of the guide. Check it out!
>But but but you said there won't be any major changes since everything is basically finished up to German Idealism!
This is not a major edit at all as the core structure of Medieval Philosophy is preserved (Aquinas and Augustine). What's changed is merely a bit more of explication on the era and an expansion on who to read for more Medieval Theological thought.
Admittedly I was lazy here in not adding much to Medieval Philosophy as If I remember correctly I wrote Descartes first before Medieval Philosophy and wanted to preserve formatting (that is, keep Descartes's stuff on one page) by saving space. But have no worries this is now rectified!
Montaigne was added
Skeleton of the Schopenhauer, Nietzsche & Kierkegaard sections added. Theres not much right now and I'm rather busy lately with personal stuff so I would like some help.
Japanese /lit/ folder

Hello Japanophi/lit/es, quick survey here.
I'm working on a v9 of the Jap lit folder but it's getting bigger and bigger, file-size wise.
v8 was already like 150-170 MB which was insane.
I'm not the guy who usually updates it, so I'm wondering what to do.
Its large size is caused by pretty large PDF files of scanned books, but there's also multiple versions in weird formats for the same book. For example, for Mishima's Sea of Fertility, there are like 8 versions and I can't see the point of it. I mean, I don't think anybody reads ebooks in lit, prc, fb2 and all those weird formats other than EPUB or MOBI.
So, what I plan to do is only leave EPUB, MOBI and PDF (if scanned or available) versions and remove those 'duplicates'.
What do you think?
