When you guys say "start with the greeks," do you mean plato and aristotle? or the pre-socratics? Can you get a good grip on western philosophy without pre-socratics? If not, who are the pre-socratics I should read and what works by them?

Hey /lit/ Concerning the Private Language Argument, is any of you fellows capable of convincing me that it's not complete bullshit? I don't need explanation, I just want to see whether or not there is any side of the subject I haven't thought of. You probably all know the example of the person P marking its calender with S whenever he or she has that certain sensation. He argues - against every common sense - that this private language would not be possible (or how he expresses himself "for what this ceremony?"). Why? Because remembering is fallible, you could do it wrong. This argument many people called 'memory scepticism', and I think it's pretty much the (horribly dumb) keypoint. This memory scepticism falls for a typical fault of beginners in epistomology: doubting, just because it is possible, not because the believed proposition is actually less likely to be true than false. I mean the fuck - of course he remembers it right. Memory is a certain ground for knowledge, saying anything else is completly against common sense... tl;dr Try and convince me that the Private Language Argument is not bullshit.

Have any of you actually practiced Stirner style egoism in real life? How did it go? I've adopted it and so far I quit my job suddenly for a new one, quit doing shitty research I didn't really want to do, and stopped wasting my time on a shitty club no one wanted to take part in anyway. I'm not really sure if I wouldn't have done those things anyways, or if getting rid of some of my spooks is how I found the balls to do it, but whatever. So far the effects seem relatively positive. I've even started learning to play classical piano, now that I am spending less time on bullshit and more time on what I like.

Starting to Bukowski

Want to pick up a Bukowski collection because fuck it. Where to begin?

recommendations like Lovecraft?

4 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: hp-lovecraft-1_000.jpg]
Hey /lit/, recently i've had this craving for H.P.Lovecraft stories and I recently bought a book that I think had all of his published works. I quickly read through it and loved it. I just really love the way he writes and I was hoping that you guys can recommend me some stuff that is similar to his work? But preferably good because I think most 'horror' stories are bad and just slightly suspenseful and have a boring end. I like Lovecraft because I was so drawn into his world in his stories and I just want some immersion like that with some good books. So, any suggestions?

Hello /lit/, do you know any good books about surviving in the Kali Yuga?

Why is it that the majority of libraries and bookstores, no matter how narrow and small their selection, separate their "Fiction" and "Science Fiction" into separate sections? Why must scifi be quarantined and treated as if it's somehow less than "Fiction." Separate but equal my asa.

Malignant And Miles Short

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: 1331918971102.jpg]
Born from agony that won't go numb. Hell's eternal crumb. A chandelier of vomit and pain. Bellicose but not by indignation. Malignant and miles short of everything that could become anything. I did not consent to the life I've been forced to live. Staring into infinity from the lee of my broken mind, where sanity struggles to survive. I illuminate what I hate and concentrate solely on suffering. Huddled deep in what half the world could never conceive. A world so violent and depraved that it has been shaped into the fucking face of hell. My thoughts are spit onto scraps of sky. Bloodshed hail and acid rain force a fucking gun against your brain. Contemplate suicide. Know my pain. All beauty beaten into black and gray. Know my pain. Ruthless anguish sunk violently into your wrists as the bleak sun wanes and breaks beneath the weight of vehement shade. Know my pain. See me through the ashen fog. I am the fucking horror you were warned of. I am the lone bastard. I am the charred remains of horrific fates. Know my fucking pain. In the incondite funnel of human misery. My mind has failed me.

What does /lit/ think of Borges?

What do you think of Alan Moore? He wrote Watchmen and V for Vendetta. He is an anarchist and a magician. If you have some time, i can recommend you this documentary on him: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YutJ0HORpAQ He talks a bit about his life, how he ended up being an author for comics and then proceeds to discuss more intellectual/philosophical topics. One of which is magic. It sounds a bit ridicoulus but i found this to be one of the most interesting parts because he compares it to writing literature. Here is the part about magic btw: https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=YutJ0HORpAQ#t=1592 If this thread is considered off topic because he is an author for comic books(which are in fact literature), then just delete the thread instead of banning me. Imo this topic seems to be more interesting for /lit/ than /co/ as there is a pretty big part in the video where he talks about writing and rather philosophical topics. In fact he barely talks about comics and when he does he talks about them as a form of literature.

Which science fiction is the better science fiction? The type that takes a serious look at how the world might develop in the future, taking the time to come up with logical explanations to how machines and such operate and work to give the story a more believable feeling? Or the science fiction that says "this works because yes" and focuses more on the themes and ideas rather than if their future actually makes sense or not?

>Someone's finished a book before you have >"I don't want to spoil it" >They do it anyway, almost as if they don't even know it I don't get it, if you don't want to spoil the book, why not just be quiet or talk as if you were at the part where the other person is?

Hey guys, just a reminder that there is an ongoing /lit/ Wittgenstein study and discussion group, studying the Philosophical Investigations. It's been seven weeks and we're still going strong. If you missed any meetings in the past, don't worry, it's still possible to get on board! The next meeting is this Saturday 28th September, at 8pm GMT! All you have to do is show up on irc.rizon.net, at #wittgenstein at this time, having read sections 65 - 77. Here's a copy of the text: http://gormendizer.co.za/wp-content/uploads/2010/06/Ludwig.Wittgenstein.-.Philosophical.Investigations.pdf Please feel free to discuss anything about Wittgenstein you'd like in this thread, or ask any questions about how to use IRC and so on.
