I know Sun worship has a prominent, long and storied history, but what about Moon worship?
Has it always occupied a subordinate position?
What are some good documentaries about art and history of art?
Hey-a 4chan, It's me, your good buddy Kramer. I haven't been here in years, and I haven't been on this board yet. I think I will get into this board if you can answer me this one little /his/torical curiosity I have: What is the inherently most based medieval, classical or ancient civilization? I simply don't know.
What are the essential readings on stoic philosophy?
Thanks. I'm currently reading Meditations and enjoying it greatly.
While doing some research on stoicism on Wikipedia I happened upon an article on stoic physics which, as a physics student, I found very enthralling. Does anyone know if there are any compiled readings that expound on stoic physics or is it all pretty much scattered through the works of various philosophers?
Is there any real chance of Stirner's philosophies making some kind of resurgence culturally?
Are Rosicrucians heretics? They believe in Christ and all of their philosophy is built around Christianity and they say they are Christians. How far down does the rabbit hole go?
Who are the Rosicrucians?
The Rosicrucians are a community of mystics who study and practice the metaphysical laws governing the universe.
Our studies include:
The Mysteries of Birth and Death
The Illusory Nature of Time and Space
Awakening of the Psychic Consciousness
Human Consciousness and Cosmic Consciousness
Mystical Power of Vowel Sounds and Mantras
The Creative Power of Visualization
Influence of Thoughts on Health
Development of the Intuition

/his/, tell me about the Black Panthers. I'm having a really hard time finding unbiased sources on them. Were they good for communities and unfairly hassled by the government, or were they crazy ideologues? Also, please no /pol/ or /leftypol/ tier answers.
Isnt everyone a philosopher at this point?
Yep. Philosopher is what an autist calls themselves when they have no other remarkable talents.
There's no point in actual philosophers even publishing anymore since everybody is too self-absorbed for a decent philosophical work to gain traction across a broad readership. This is why Zizek is a famous intellectual today whereas in the 2000s you had Goedel and Quine and so on.
Despite this being one of the most important events to ever happen in human history, why is this blatant misinformation being spread. Everyone knows that the Jedi were Finnish yet this picture labelling them as Hwan is spread everywhere. Also these casualty counts are far too low and a lot of stuff is omitted. Utterly shameful.
What are the worst historical memes, in your opinion?
>muh blacks were 3/5 of a person
No, it was about representation in the House, not keeping the black man down.
>Yasuke, (v弥助) was a black (African, or of African origin) retainer who was in the duke of the Japanese hegemon and warlord Oda Nobunaga between 1581 and 1582.
>look into university history curriculums
>60% courses are about national history of my irrelevant Balkan state
>the rest is minor courses on european history
Why are national programs so terrible? This is why Europe needs to be violently integrated and cured of its national myths.
Any State sponsored university has a unstated interest in keeping the State happy. Be too controversial and they pull funding.
That last panel would work better as a pompei graffiti. Real reason why I posted.
What are some critiques of Plato's Theory of Forms?
I like the the theory of forms when it comes to mathematics but the idea that there is a such thing as 'computerness' or 'phoneness' or 'beerness' floating around in the ether does strike me as a bit ridiculous.
if you construe the "ether" as each individual's brain matter then plato was pretty close to the mark, though only for how each individual brain works. for example we have a form of "chair" in our mind that is informed by all past chairs we have interacted with and each new chair is mapped onto. but I don't see how there could possibly be the form of "chair" outside a human cognitive frame of reference
>implying it wasn't holy, Roman, or an empire
>It was holy because it was endorsed by the Pope
>Roman just because it was similar to the Roman empire
>Empire because it had Spanish, German, Italians, etc
Perhaps it was to be honest.
Charlemange was the first to gain the title of Holy Roman Emperor, because he kicked the muslims out of France and went on a crusade to convert/kill the Saxon's till they accepted Christianity.
For all purposes, the Carolingian Renaissance did seem to be a revival of many Roman traditions after antiquity and he largely did restore Imperial rule in the West.
If you can consider the Roman Catholic Church to be the spiritual and in ways cultural dictate of the Roman Empire, Charlemagne as the dude who reunified the West into...

Why is that two headed eagle not some kind of monster in DnD?
Why didn't it find its way into mythology, like existing in a fable?
Too cool of a thing to just remain as some old timey symbol for dead empires 2bh
