hey litfags, a fellow /b/ro in need of some help with this essay i'm writing, it's based on this sentence “That which can be asserted without evidence can be dismissed without evidence.” i'm pretty much done with it, i just have trouble finding an example for the following statement "Prior to a more in depth discussion of this topic I would like to point out that this statement itself is contradictory and paradoxical in the sense that it offers no evidence to prove it(self), and can hence be disproved without evidence. In other words, some claims cannot be neither confirmed nor denied by evidence or lack thereof. One example of this is...." can aynone give me any pointers as to what to write about pls >inb4 religion

Tao Lin is the David Bowie of Alt Lit. Look at that cover. It is no ordinary cover. It is an extraordinary cover. Literally hundreds of literary lepers have leaped upon this lush cover. Dazzling, beautiful in color, it is the modern day GIF cover. Other Alt groups have tried this ‘GIF as a cover’ experience to great rewards. Animal Collective did it with ‘Merriweather Post Pavilion’. Hence Tao Lin is in good company with this cover that will change the game forever.

Hey, guys, any torrent of the /lit/ recommended guide which doesn't suck? I was looking about, and notice the normal one is normally dead, so I was wondering if anyone had the collection elsewhere? Also, I am wondering why more of them aren't in HTML format. Generally speaking, an HTML file can be more easily and correctly transformed into whatever format you might want, without even counting that you can more easily modify it. So, tell me /lit/, how do I get into the literary goodness?

Does anybody have a copy or an ebook of Barry Miles' "Charles Bukowski"? It's biographical and given the edginess Bukowski's writings seem to promote among our teenage c/lit/s, it would be nice to know more about the man. From what I've read from other sources, Bukowski's early life wasn't as hard as he pictured it. For instance, his chores consisted of taking out the garbage and mowing the lawn... and that's it. In regards to his perversity in classes, terrorizing teachers, apparently it was Baldy Mullinax, Bukowski's friend who really was the ringleader. His ex-classmates didn't remember him too well. pic unrelated

Hey /lit/. I had a question for ya'll; a friend of mine read a book (roughly 800 pages) about parasites residing in whales or something along those lines. I don't believe there are many books about that particular subject, so there must be SOMEONE who read it. Please help me find it. pic unrelated

Just a short question /lit/. I am very interested in philosophy and I want to go for the chronological approach. My question basically is, is there some kind of list or information chart with all the important major philsophers in it and the different movements? Once I got some answers or links, I might as well delete the thread. Thanks in advance.

Did any of you sign up for the Modern and Postmodern class on Coursera? It's actually really good and covers some philosophy in a much better way than the philosophy course is. Plus the instructor actually knows what he's talking about and actually knows how to give a lecture. On top of that, he links you free online versions to the readings for ever lecture.

Hey there /lit/ I recently had a lot of thought about the inevitablity of death and I have to say, that I came to terms with it. I am actually not even in fear anymore or worried about it. I actually think, that it is quiet interesting, that our time is limited. It is hard to actually put my thoughts into words. I basically think, that since we have limited time, that if you actually accomplish something it is a way greater feat than if you had an infinte amount of time. On the other hand I realize that because of the inevitablity of death, we are actually quiet free in our desicions. I mean it is going to end anyways, so why not do what you enjoy or at least try it. If you fail you fail, we are all going to die one day anyways. I am basically saying make the best of what you have. Now my question, is there a philosophical movement that includes this ideas? I am not talking about existentialism.

Have any of you read this? If so, was it worth it? I haven't read a novel in a long time and this looks lengthy. One of my profs recommended it after I told her stories about my grandpa and his friend's missing finger and how no one knows what really happened.

According to the CIA this book sucks. And a CIA historian explains why... https://www.cia.gov/library/center-for-the-study-of-intelligence/csi-publications/csi-studies/studies/vol51no3/legacy-of-ashes-the-history-of-cia.html Not counting notes it's 605 pages. Meaning it's going to take me 2 weeks to read.

What's wrong with using the passive voice in formal writing? I got an essay of mine back yesterday, and my TA wrote "pass." all over it. What's so wrong with it? When I read it out loud, it sounds fine.

Are philosophers to normal people what skeptics are to philosophers? From what I've seen, usually people rule out certain considerations and just ignore those who preach them. Thus, if one is at a party and starts talking about philosophy one gets a smile at best and will be avoided, and if one is among philosophers and starts doubting everything the same attitude is found... So, will there always be the need for unfounded collective assumptions in order to be able to communicate and interact?

What book should I but tomorrow, if possible?

What is the difference between a dialect and a debasement of a language? If one person pronounced a word incorrectly, is he actually just correctly pronouncing another dialect? Is it determined by consensus? Are there any meaningful standards or disproofs for a dialect? The example I'm trying to understand is ebonics. The argument I've had against it being a dialect is that it's not feasible to teach in schools because ebonics is not a consistent dialect, but rather a method of omitting information without completely destroying comprehensibility. However, I don't know if the standard of a dialect having to be able to be learned is one that has any scientific basis. Is there a meaningful difference in linguistics between a way of speaking that can be decoded the same way any other broken form of English can be decoded, and a way of speaking that requires the listener to learn new rules in order to facilitate comprehension? How do linguists actually discern new dialects? (The second reason I'm against because the idea that black youths can't be taught proper English is incredibly racist and and harmful to their futures.)
