Good and recent Sci-Fi books

2 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
I've just finished devouring 'the dark forest' after reading 'the three body problem' before really great novels and I can't recommend them highly enough. they both do have their somewhat tiring passages, but it's more than worth it. I can't wait for the third book to finally come out! what's some other great sci-fi of recent years you guys read?

How do you deal with being a literal patrician? Is it even possible to relate to others and have friends? I went out with my so called 'friends' today and i decided for myself that i can no longer live my life with them. I am superior in every way and i don't even feed my ego with it or anything because i'm so smart to know that i am not the ego. I can't relate to anyone i feel like i'm the only adult in a world of children. I would love to have high consciousness friends but i would not know where to search for them. I'm so sick of having different taste than everyone. >inb4 people telling me using the word patrician unironically is retarded I would not know how else to describe myself. Fucking normies who don't understand my feels can leave.

How does /lit/ feel about The Silmarillion? Despite its convolution, rather dry writing at times, and ostensible literary faults, the story of the Noldor is clearly the best, yes?

How do filthy continentals recover after reading the below greentext? Zizek? BTFO! Hegel? BTFO! Nietzsche? BTFO! Even Stirner, who I like, wrote a big fat boring book that could have been two pages long at most. Why does the government give money to those sneaky conniving continentals? False analogies, over-extrapolation, appeals to authority, flowery and dense and incoherent language, over-abstraction, not speaking English, 100% unfalsifiable assertions, disgusting pseudo-scientific use of scientific concepts, the use of fiction / jokes in order to create false analogies, complete ignorance of empirical data... is there no length the Eternal Continental will not go to in order to gain followers and a juicy book deal with Verso or their alternative publisher of choice? >What you’re referring to is what’s called “theory.” And when I said I’m not interested in theory, what I meant is, I’m not interested in posturing–using fancy terms like polysyllables and pretending you have a theory when you have no theory whatsoever. So there’s no theory in any of this stuff, not in the sense of theory that anyone is familiar with in the sciences or any other serious field. Try to find in all of the work you mentioned some principles from which you can deduce conclusions, empirically testable propositions where it all goes beyond the level of something you can explain in five minutes to a twelve-year-old. See if you can find that when the fancy words are decoded. I can’t. So I’m not interested in that kind of posturing.Žižekis an extreme example of it. I don’t see anything to what he’s saying. Jacques Lacan I actually knew. I kind of liked him. We had meetings every once in awhile. But quite frankly I thought he was a total charlatan. He was just posturing for the television cameras in the way many Paris intellectuals do. Why this is influential, I haven’t the slightest idea. I don’t see anything there that should be influential.

The Catcher in the Rye

8 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: ]
Just read The Catcher in the Rye. I didn't like it, but neither did I hate it. I just got the feeling that Holden was his own times teenage edgelord, typically complaining about everything he could. I think that it may have been a good book at the time of its writing, but that you can't gain anything from it reading in today. Thoughts about the book?

If I read before bed is that bad for me? I keep having people tell me that for a person trying to get into reading, reading before bed is the worst thing you can do because it conditions the mind to become tired when you read, but the problem is this: >Work long days every day of the week >Rarely get a day off (thanks socialism) >Only have 2 hours to myself after the end of my shifts >One hour is given to winding down by taking a shower and eating dinner >The other hour is dedicated to getting ready for bed So I really don't have any time to read at all other than before bed. Is it really that bad to do? I really really wanna read, but I just don't have time unless it's before sleep. Pic related is me after a long days work.

I fell in love (tremendously in love or obsessed, who knows?) with a woman that, and I feel sick when I say it, was a slut. She's 23 years old and has had sex with 28 men. Some of them trios. We're from a small town even though I don't live there anymore, I know a lot of the names that slept with her and know for a fact that if I read the full list I'd recognize some more. I feel ashamed to admit it but I'm ashamed by it and worried about what others may think or say. That's not me, I never gave a fuck but now I'm feeling it and it's as invading as it can be. I also feel sexually insecure. 28 is a big number. Way too big for me to handle. What are some books that could help me through this? Don't refrain from recommending lengthy works of philosophy. Beside that she is perfect, and I mean it.

Does anyone know of a good overview of individuality? I am especially interested in how the concept of individuality in Europe changed or remained the same over time and how (and if) this contrasts with Middle Eastern and Oriental concepts of individuality and self. I am a pleb and I can't say I have read any physiological book but I get the vague impression that free will and individuality are some of the most discussed topics in western works. It seems these concepts manifested itself more in a rather chaotic Europe than in other advanced societies. Maybe this impression just stems from my ignorance and i'd love to be proven wrong but could someone give me a pointer to a book that gives a good overview of this concept? I find it rather hard to distill all these free floating thoughts into a single question, so I am sorry if this seems somewhat incoherent.
