Any thoughts about The Cosmic Race (La raza cósmica) by José Vasconcelos, /lit/.
Is globalization really creating a fifth race which is destined to dominate the world and bring human kind to the path of cosmic glory?
why do people imagine that the human race is destined for "glory"? or even "cosmic glory"?
what is "glory"?
it's where the other apes in the tribe celebrate something cool you did. like killing that hyena with a stick.
i can only guess that "cosmic glory" is where you kill a hyena with gamma radiation channeled from a pulsar.
No, I think it's a completely unrealistic project doomed to failure.
I do not think man can possibly achieve such a glory in a universal manner, in any way. With the exception of following an eschatological event such as the return of Christ.
ITT: books that /lit/ trolled you into reading
>not liking if on a winter's night
this book is actually a great filter - if you actually enjoyed reading and literature there's no reason for you to dislike it. if you're a fraudulent pseudointellectual faggot (aka most of lit tbqhwyf) you'll hate it
so grats op, you've successfully outed yourself as a pleb retard.
I can appreciate his command of language. I like some weird lit, but I just don't like this.
Satan appears before you and grants you the wish to give a book of your choice a sequel which is just as well written as the first. Which book is it?
Which edition should I purchase?
Or, should I get another one completely?
I really fell in love with Albert Camus. Especially with "The Myth of Sisyphus". It has changed my whole perspective of the sense of life and the obligations we have.
What's his best work?

It's on a self-selected topic related to critical race theory. I think technically we were supposed to tell our professor what the topic was, but it's a bit late for that now. At this point in law school I'm just happy passing classes
this thread is shit
you could knock out 2500 words in no time if you weren't such a worthless sack of organs that anyone else could put to better use
you have a month
just stop breathing for the rest of our sake

Which philosopher or writer had the most JUST life?
The best opening sentence in literature is?
How do you write female characters? I'm a male in my early twenties and I always write very poor, superficial female characters.
Could anyone recommend any male writers that portray female characters well?
""I always start with physicality when I'm writing as a woman. So I always have a vagina and think about having periods. I always start with an embodiment. And I think when I read men writing about women, they never seem to have thought about that. They've never thought: actually, you've got a cycle, you're different. So if...

So how does your accent fit into the prescribed US accents?
Pic related is mine, I'm from urban Australia
What does this mean? Im not even a native speaker.
I grew up in the states, but I didn't grow up in any of these places. I lived six years in Sacramento. Me and my brother both have weird, affected accents.
How come he has not responded to Sam Harris yet? Is he afraid he will get a bruising?
No need. The correspondence that was published showed Harris to be completely outclassed and out of his element, to the point where any reasonably neutral observer would consider him a dishonest and in all respects vastly inferior adversary, essentially unworthy of Chomskys time.
Tldr: Harris got F'd in the A.
Are there any young adult books that aren't shit?
/lit/, seriously, how do I find literary friends? It's hard as fuck.
ITT we post our fav books and try to guess stuff about those who post 'em.
>Demons by Dostoyevsky
>Yes by Thomas Bernhard
>Absalom, Absalom! by Faulkner
ok, see. here's a problem: why did you include the word "composed" there? "a large extended family of eccentrics" means the same thing. tell me—do you have many friends? any at all?
