Existential Absurdist Nihilist Hedonist Moral Relativism

37 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: sisyphus.jpg]
Existentialism means recognizing that each of us is truly and absolutely alone from birth until death. Nihilism is a rejection of all traditional values in recognition of the previous fact. Absurdism is the belief that there is no objective meaning or value in human life at all, but also the determination to seek value nonetheless. Hedonism is the belief that your own happiness is all that you can value in the absence of any objective meaning. Moral relativism is admitting that you cannot prove anyone else's ideas to be objectively wrong since you don't believe in objectivity anyway. And ego is what makes it so satisfying to watch you all recoil from these ideas in a refusal to admit your existence is as insignificant as an ant's.

Doctor Zhivago by Boris Pasternak

Hey, so I hate to be THAT asshole who asks for help on homework but I have a thirty page paper on Doctor Zhivago due tomorrow and I can't find any good critical analysis on the novel. So, I was wondering if /lit/ had any insights into Pasternak's characters? Like, I understand the struggle Yuri faces choosing between his wife or his true love, Lara. But then following the Revolution and forcing Lara to flee Russia, Yuri gets in with that other woman Marina and they have kids. Would you say that these decisions are derived from Yuri growing apathetic following the hardships of losing Lara and the war? And this could also explain his inability to finish any of his writing at this point. And the way I see it, the necessity of Yuri's death was to showcase the horrible scarring that the war had caused, but I'm not sure that's totally right. Also does Lara have any sort of major character changes throughout the novel? I'm thinking she was mostly flat. Also y'know feel free to just discuss this great book, or what a piece of shit op is for asking help from 4chan.

Why read classics? How many out there just read them for no other reason other than they're popular among the literary 'elite'? "Oh yeah they're great because of the [appeal to popularity] and of course the [appeal to antiquity]" It seems to me that much of what was written in around 1850 or before is just odd, long-winded and full of motifs far too peculiar to its own time and own time only. 1) Genealogy, upbringing and breeding. Sure, that matters but we don't need nine chapters for it. 2) Physiognomy, Attire Yeah, I get it. He looks [adjective] and he resembles a [animal], perhaps try to give him life though deeds instead. This doesn't need to be a bloated part in every character introduction. What people are wearing doesn't need to be ten pages either. 3) Moral character, piety and suchlike qualities. The emphasis placed on this is strident. Moreover, it's boring and usually too long, I've read pages about how loyal and altruistic someone.

Has anyone here read Schopenhauer's essay 'on women'? I think it makes some valid points. Generally I think women are less objective and less egotistical. Schopenhauer comes on pretty strong though. If you want to read it it is here, - http://www.theabsolute.net/misogyny/onwomen.html - it's a pretty quick read

How do you know if you genuinely enjoy literature or if it's all just a ruse? Sometimes I think I read only for inauthentic reasons.

I'm trying to remember the name and author of a science fiction short story.From what I remember, a group of adventurers and scientists are in the jungles looking for the origin of life when they come across a primitive clan of blobs. They believe that they are the earliest forms of humans, but it turns out that the current humans (us) are actually aliens and we drove the blobs, the original inhabitants of Earth, to live in obscurity. Google failed me, so does this sound familiar to anyone?

Hello, beautiful people of /lit/ One of my friends was mocking the other because as he exited the building into the cold afternoon he said: >"this weather is Antarctica's". A spirited (and somewhat violent) debate arose from this. I believe that this sentence while hideously clunky is technically* correct. Eventually both friends including the one who made the original remark decided I was wrong. This was hurtful, I need a spiteful victory to feel better about myself. So tell me /lit/, am I right? *I cannot stress this enough, it's ugly but it is "technically" correct
