So, any good books on Kierkegaard you guys can recommend me? Also, I'm looking for horror authors similar to H.P. Lovecraft, Clive Barker, and Junji Ito - any recommendations there?

Illustrated Finnegans Wake: http://www.foliosociety.com/book/FNG/finnegans-wake-joyce John Vernon Lord illustrates James Joyce’s masterpiece of linguistic innovation in a landmark Folio publication. Should I guive it another try? I read a little bit of it, but my opinion is the same of Nabokov: Ulysses is great, but Finnegans Wake is just a big-sized failure.

>debate of historicity of Jesus >someone inevitably tries to shut it down by posting wkipedia "There is near unanimity among scholars that Jesus existed historically,[6][7][nb 1][nb 2][nb 3][nb 4]' >they don't mention that John Dickson is an Anglican minister >they don't mention that Bart D. Ehrman is a theologian >they don't mention that Robert M. Price is a theologian >they don't mention that Richard Burridge is a member of the Church of England's General Synod Why are believers in a historical jesus so intellectually stupid? This one defining quotable sentence lists professionally religious people as its source.

/lit/ never talks about the Selfish Gene. I think it's because it's actually a genius book that will actually change your life. I suspect /lit/ would rather stay in their delusional echochamber of sophist denials. Sad really.

You don't have to give your address but I'd like to know what state, city, region you people are from and whether this affects your writing, the atmosphere, the characters.

What would have been the music that Nietzsche was listening to when writing Zarathustra? I know he distanced himself from Wagner from quite some time, so what can I listen that will put me in the mood when reading it?

My sister is into Greek literature, philosophy and especially mythology and interested in Hellenism. What books should I get her for Christmas? It can be something she's already read, but it should be a cool edition.

How does it make you feel that these people are the actual intelligent people and are having the actually intelligent conversations and not sustaining their views with shitty arguments and rhetorics but actual thought? The humanities may also be important, but one can definitely never leave the sciences behind and these areas have great advantages over the "softer" ones. Our society is embarrisingly scientificly illiterate, are you part of the problem? Do you disagree?

/lit/ great books book club

The goal: to read some of the great classics of western literature during the course of the next year, selected in such a manner as to give us the greatest possible level of cultural and literary knowledge. The rules: >no book may be over 500 pages, and the preference should be for books 200 pages long or less. The reason is that, as I said, we should try to read as widely as possible, which cannot possibly be done if we concentrate one whole month to a single big book - it's better to read 600 pages of the Meditations, Leviathan, Oedipus King, Death in Venice and A Doll's House instead of 600 pages of Moby-Dick. The only exception to this rule should be Don Quixote, because it's over 500 pages and cannot possibly, by any means whatsoever, be left out, no matter how inconvenient its presence may be. In the case of authors who wrote typically long books, we should chose the shorter ones, even though we might think they're not their best: Ivan Ilitch for Tosltoy, A Portrait of the Artist for Joyce. >no picking your favorite little writers. No, we will not read Infinite Jest instead of Aristophanes just because it looks cool. Our goal is to cover as much as possible of the western tradition from its beginnings in Homer to this day, and therefore there is no space for IJ, sorry. >each book shall have its own discussion thread, and we will provide download links for each work, including illegal links for more modern ones, so don't worry about money >no science and math involved, and only accessible and entertaining philosophy (Descartes, Plato, Russell, but no Wittgenstein, Frege, Hegel or Heidegger) >no more than 50 pages a day - preference should be for 20 pages, or one hour a day in average bydlo reading speed If you guys agree in taking part of it, and if we aren't so lazy that we can't even read 20 pages a day, then by the end of 2015 all of us will have a good deal of knowledge about western literature and a moderate knowledge of western philosophy and history. In this thread we will select the books, but we will have to obey the rules mentioned above and also the following: >one book by Homer >The Aeneid >at least one play by each of the four great Greek dramatists >Dante's Inferno >Hamlet or some other Shakespeare play >a French play >an eighteenth century novel by Swift, Voltaire, Diderot or other >representative works by the great 19th century novelists: Flaubert, Tolstoy, Dickens etc. >a few great works from the 20th century, including at least one work by a contemporary author (Lot 49 seems a good choice, since it's very short) It would also be great to add some history classics, from the Greeks and the Romans specially. Also, some autobiographies, like Mill's. Philosophy books should also be added: The Apology, Poetics, The Meditations, On Liberty and The Problems of Philosophy seem to me to be good options. We have almost twenty days to change the rules if needed, chose the books, and post the download links.

ITT: Books you fapped to. That scene between Raven and Y.T got me.

Taboo Langauge

89 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Ok, so I have a question about use of language. When people on 4chan casually throw around words like "nigger" and "faggot", are they enforcing the meaning of those words or are they taking away their power? Do sites like tumblr actually give those words more power by treating the with such taboo? In a sense, because of people like those on tumblr, won't these slurs become the swears of the future? The swears we have currently are all sexual because that used to be taboo in a puritanical society.
