Just going to go ahead and put this here, I finally found the version of the meditations I was looking for (the recent Gregory Hays translation) and thought I'd share. Yes it's in mobi, but that's out side of my control I'm afraid. http://www.mediafire.com/download/afcskshc7m876cv/Meditations_-_Aurelius_Marcus.mobi Can we have a Stoic general I guess? Anyone here interested or has actually worked with Stoic practices? What do you do? I like hypomnema (journaling) and I find some of their premeditations helpful.

What do you think of Richard Morgan's work? I have read Altered Carbon which I consider to be my favorite science fiction novel (I don't think I've read more than five in my life however) and I've read some of The Steel Remains and Broken Angels. Altered Carbon is a solid book throughout with a good mystery, tone and interesting protagonist. I couldn't really get into the sequel Broken Angels as the Kavoc comes across as a major dick this time and not in an interesting way. Steel Remains was cool, might go back to that one.

Why can't we merge the three main theories in anthropology, or, all of them for that matter? What empirical unvalidated assumptions remain between and within them? Culture theory (semiotics), post-structuralism and diffusion-ism. What is, essentially, the difference between all the major theories at their fundamental level of assumption and which is most prominent at the moment in unified academic circles?

The Bible

hey /lit/ I've seen a lot of references to the bible and how it's essential to read in terms of understanding literature, why is this? I'm an atheist so I've had no contact with it but I will happily read it if it is beneficial (not spiritually)

I'm selling 20 or so of my paperbooks.

I am a traitor to the revolution. I own about 350 books, about 250 of which are on my shelves, the okay and good books, and about 100 of which are in the attic, the bad books. Due to storage problems. Also, so I don't have to look at them. I decided, since I'm really poor, to get rid of some of the attic books. I've picked out 20, which I shall mention some of in a minute, and sell them to a local bookstore. I doubt I'll get much a book, but I'm not sure. Together, I'll get a bit. The books include Salem's Lot, The Stranger, The Adventures of Tom Sawyer / Huck Finn, and others. How does this make you feel?

These are my sources, I'll try to arrange The Definitive Reading List for the rest of my life. I will divide it into four categories: Fiction, Poetry, Philisophy and Non-fiction. Roughly ~ 500-1000 items. How long would it take me?

So I read post-colonial short stories for my A-levels, basically all portraying how evil colonialism and the British Empire was. In these studies one text I read was 'Dead Man's Path' by Chinua Achebe and I've ever since been interested in reading african literature. The thing is, I don't quite know where to start. Is 'Things fall apart' by Achebe a good introduction to african lit? I've also read texts by Ngugi wa Thiong'o which I enjoyed - maybe /lit/ could recommend some stuff by either one of these authors? Also, is it true that african literature basically is only about how hard it is being black? Kind regards.

Has /lit/ read Godel, Escher, Bach? What did you think? I liked it, though the formal systems got to be a bit too dry imo. I think it may be the hardest book to describe to a friend ever. Any suggestions of what to read next based on GBE?

"Mill was a notably precocious child. He describes his education in his autobiography. At the age of three he was taught Greek.[7] By the age of eight he had read Aesop's Fables, Xenophon's Anabasis,[7] and the whole of Herodotus,[7] and was acquainted with Lucian, Diogenes Laërtius, Isocrates and six dialogues of Plato.[7] He had also read a great deal of history in English and had been taught arithmetic, physics and astronomy. At the age of eight he began studying Latin, the works of Euclid, and algebra, and was appointed schoolmaster to the younger children of the family. His main reading was still history, but he went through all the commonly taught Latin and Greek authors and by the age of ten could read Plato and Demosthenes with ease. His father also thought that it was important for Mill to study and compose poetry. One of Mill's earliest poetry compositions was a continuation of the Iliad. In his spare time, he also enjoyed reading about natural sciences and popular novels, such as Don Quixote and Robinson Crusoe." >tfw your father will never force you to be a child genius

Clive Barker

Does anyone keep up with Clive Barker's newer works? I recently learned he was hospitalized for a coma not too long ago, while looking up what he's up to now. Was shocked to not hear anything about it. Apparently he's focusing all his effort into his young adult series Abarat. Horror is his best element but the fantasy elements he introduces can be pretty enjoyable as well. Nice to have a guilty pleasure teen series that isn't Twilight tier. On a related note how is Imajica? General consensus seems to be that it's pretentious but has nice world building. I'll read it soon regardless but I'm curious about what /lit/ thinks.

So i've started Fear and Loathing on the Campaign trail, and I don't want to sound like an ignorant asshole, but Hunter S. Thompson is ACTUALLY a very good writer. I love his style, his frantic, disjointed pacing, his imagery is weird and twisted (which is to be expected for someone who love psys as much as he did) but he seems to have such a firm, vice-like grip on reality for some drug-crazed outsider. Which he wasn't, but, as I said, I was ignorant. Did/does anyone else find this surprising?

What if these books were written by a competent writer like Scott Gerald or Orwell?

Has /lit/ got into this book? I really enjoyed it with the action and the some what dark side of it? I haven't looked into the rest of Brent Weeks books yet, but does anyone know anything else similar to this same type of read? And what kind of lit would this be categorized as?
