People seriously don't think that there is any work of art that is more important than My Twisted World in the 21st century, right? I'm genuinely serious. It's absolutely incredible how much he nailed it.

Are there any non-theist philosophies which place emphasis on faith? Is faith useful or important, or an altogether bad thing? By "faith" I don't mean total belief without any shred of doubt ever no matter what, I mean it in Kierkegaard's sense.

ITT: Hacks I'm happy to see that people are finally moving past the "Hitchens was a genius" thing and finally admiting that he had very little going on for him other than sophistry, but it still amazes me that the guy is taken as the epitome of great rhetoric and oratory I remember listening to some of his lectures back in the day and noticing that if the topic was the same he'd say things like "there's a quote from __ which I think is from __ I'm not so sure..." exactly the same way in every lecture, when you can tell that self-conscious hack clearly knew exactly from where he was quoting because he probably spent the night before writing that speech on google checking it, but he wanted to look like he was so well-read these things would simply come off the cuff for him

I'm reading The Bible (King James), and plan on reading Paradise Lost, and then perhaps The Divine Comedy or some of Kierkegaard's works. What are some works that are Christianity related/influenced that are worth looking into? General Christian literature thread.

You always here how psychoanalysis is outdated and doesnt't hold up anymore. But when I googled it I haven't found any proof for that. So what's the scientific stance on it? If it is still relevant what would be a good introduction to it? pic unrelated

Hey /lit/, /v/ here. I'd like to get into literature, and I hear I need to start with zee greeks. But I'm not really interested in getting into philosophy really. Is starting with the Greeks apply for just fiction as well or should I start with /lit/ starter kit? Also what is the theory behind the books in the starter kit? Easy to read? Most relevant?

Amazon Book Giveaway

DFW thread! Just kidding, we got enough of those already. So I got a whole bunch of Amazon gift cards recently, and I feel generous so I'm gonna share them with you. Post books you want from Amazon itt and if I like the book I'll buy it, strip the DRM and share it with you guys. I'm open to all subjects, but keep your choices under $15. Post a book description, picture, why you want the book, anything to convince me to buy that book for you. I'll be checking in regularly but I'll give you guys until tomorrow or the day after to post. If the thread dies and I haven't delivered, I'll make a new thread with the same pic.

/lit/ should read Montaigne, an introduction provided by Anon

30 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
We generally think that philosophers should be proud of their big brains, and be fans of thinking, self-reflection and rational analysis. But there is one philosopher, born in France in 1533, who had a refreshingly different take. Michel de Montaigne was an intellectual who spent his writing life knocking the arrogance of intellectuals. In his great masterpiece "Essais", he comes across as relentlessly modern, wise and intelligent but also as constantly modest and keen to debunk the pretensions of learning. Not least, he's extremely funny, reminding his readers to learn that we have said or done a stupid thing is nothing, we must learn a more ample and important lesson, that we are but blockheads, or as he put it, "...on the highest throne in the world, we are seated still upon our asses." Montaigne was a child of the Renaissance, and the ancient philosophers that was popular in Montaigne's day believed that our powers of reason could afford us a happiness and greatness denied to other creatures. Reason was a sophisticated, almost divine tool offering us mastery over the world all to ourselves. That was the line taken by philosophers like Cicero. But this characterization of human reason enraged Montaigne. After hanging out with academics and philosophers he wrote "In practice, thousands of little women in their villages have lived more gentle, more equable and more constant lives than [Cicero]". His point wasn't that human beings cannot reason at all, but simply that they tend to be far more arrogant about the limits of their brains. As he wrote "our life consists partly in madness, partly in wisdom", "whoever writes about it merely respectfully and by rule leaves more than half of it behind". Perhaps the most obvious example of our madness is the struggle of living within the human body. Our bodies smell, ache, sag, throb, pulse and age, whatever the desires of our minds. Montaigne was the world's first and possibly only philosopher to talk at length about impotence, which seemed to him a prime example of how crazy and fragile our minds are. Montaigne had a friend who had grown impotent with a woman he particularly liked. Montaigne didn't blame the penis, the problem was the mind, the oppressive notion that we had complete control over our bodies, and the horror of departing from this theoretical normality. The solution, Montaigne said, was to redraw our sense of what's normal by accepting a loss of command over the penis as a harmless, common possibility in sex. One could preempt its occurrence, as the stricken man discovered. In bed with a woman, he learned to admit beforehand that he was subject to this infirmity, and spoke openly about it, so relieving the intentions within his soul. By bearing the malady as something to be expected, his sense of constriction grew less, and weighed less heavily upon him. 1/?
