Dostoevsky's Underground Man

10 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: notes.jpg]
I know threads on specific books don't always do well, but I wanted to talk about Dostoevsky's underground man. This is a recurring and important character in a lot of his work (Krotkaya, Notes From Underground, Crime and Punishment). People are always trying to frame the decline of western culture as having something to do with "technology" (social networks, instant gratification, etc.) but fail to diagnose it as part of a larger problem, namely egoism. Technology itself amplifies self-centered behavior. Many people I deal with on a daily basis are concerned with the pretense of interaction more than the event itself and it's endlessly frustrating. Those in their late thirties and beyond don't seem to have this problem. I assume most of you are in your early twenties. Do you have similar experiences? Another thing I have a hard time understanding is Dostoevsky's Christianity despite producing all of these works for one reason. Doesn't the concept of redemption, eternal suffering and eternal paradise imply a singular soul and thus an ego? It's not as easy for me to draw the same conclusion from the eastern concept of reincarnation. General discussion is also welcome

Can we get a chart or a thread going for great Non-fiction books? Particularly military and political (socio/geo) history. Pic related. A book about the Kremlin which was meticulously researched and a fantastic read.

Diary of a Psychopath?

90 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: letranger.jpg]
OK so I read Camus' "The Stranger" a few days ago and I've been mulling it ever since. Was there a point to writing this story, other than to show the emptiness of a lunatics life? I'm not trying to trash the book. It's just that when I read the reviews, I was led to believe that there would be something profound about the book, that it would say something about the time period it was written in, or the philosophy of the author. Instead I found a guy who is the embodiment of 'no fucks given' who agrees to help meddle in situations that are none of his business just to watch the drama unfold, and who kills a man, then shoots him an additional 4 times after that because 'the sun was in my eyes.' I'm not as cultured or erudite as some of you /lit/ fags, so please, tell me what I'm missing from this book.

Destroy me /lit/. Small patches of blue could be seen by the window. It was raining, but there were no rainbows. The bad asphalt rattled Jerky’s bones, he did not appreciate it. He was going to meet Dr. Sjambones, a respected member of Sts. Patrick hospital and occasional morphine dealer. Their relationship had been going on since 87 when Paul Anderson, aka Jerky, got his heart teared apart by (I’m paraphrasing) “the finest piece of ass in my creative writing class”, devasted as it is by the trials of a young break up he decided to take onto his hands a new type of ticking bomb, opiates. Some would say it was a hasty movement of his, trying to sink in the same ball park as some of the literary giants who hang around his bedroom wall. I’ll say that’s bollocks! Young Paul knew exactly what he was getting into when he picked up the phone, and breathing heavily, asked for an appointment. ‘Three thirty’, said the voice on the other end. Now he’s sitting inside an empty bus gazing idly as the cars, persons and remaining minutes pass, he brought a book but can’t read, his mind still boiling the last remarks he had to hear. A piece of ass being an asshole, how about that for metafiction huh Professor?

Hey guys, I want to read my first Nietchee. I was going for Zarathustra but what I'm really interested in reading is about "amor fati". Should I perhaps begin with another one?

Which is more commercial?

0 more posts in this thread. [Missing image file: girlinlibrary.jpg]
A book written in the first person, or third person? Not neccesarily better, or your personal favourite, but which is more commercial? I'd say first. A lot of books are written like that these days, and it seems impossible for a girl or woman to read a book without it being written in the first person.

Exactly how did this term originate? Why is it always associated with the tumblr-using SJW crowd? Moreover, how can anyone take it seriously as an insult?

Am I the only one here who finds these sort of books bullshit?

>Uses examples of that 0.001% of people who became rich and world-famous after pursuing their passions >That's like using the example of "Mr. Jenkins went gambling. He ended up winning jackpot, so you should try gambling too too." >Never mentions the 90% that ended up serving coffee at Starbucks by going to art school, etc >The truth is some people just ended up rich pursuing their passions, in the same way that some people are just born into upper-class families >A number of the people who succeeded in pursuing their passions are already from rich families, so even if they failed to find a job, they are still rich so it doesn't matter >Only in one paragraph do they say that you may end up in a job that pays less by pursuing your interest. Such bias. >In other words this is just bullshit >Buying these sort of books is just helping someone to guarantee his success by pursuing his passion (the author by writing books) instead of yours

Why are all of you so poor at arguing? Haven't any of you taken a course in critical reasoning? If not, why haven't you at least read a book on the subject? They're free. http://www.kantakji.com/fiqh/files/research/t116.pdf
