I recently started exploring new religions, especially Judaism. While I know the basics of the religion, I was wondering if you guys can tell me more about it from a philosophical viewpoint.
It doesn't have an inherent philosophical viewpoint in the sophisticated sense that entails real philosophizing and if you want to lead a life of philosophy you're already omitting yourself from orthodoxy. Your best bet is probably to look into whatever occult and mystic thought underlie the tradition. Kabbalah is the most obvious.
Oh well, jews pretty much invented both moral objectivism and messianism. Also, following laws not for a reward, but for the sake of the laws themselves.
Another interesting point is the notion that instead of converting everyone, they see it as their prime function in god's plan to lead by example.
Also, the talmu and the writings of Solomond are full of dialectics.

Obviously, none of this is the case.
While /lit/ is normally about high literature and philosophy, let's take a little vacation. I'll post some pictures of my collection of low culture paperbacks from the 1950s-1980s and answer questions.
What are some good novels set in Vietnam war?
Was reality always as ridiculous and absurd as its today?
Take a look at modern causes people are fighting for, or modern martyrs of western world (ie "victims" of "cyberbullying")
>Was reality always as ridiculous and absurd as its today?
From a practical point of view, probably not. Most people were peasants, with limited access to external news. Their world was all about planning and working from day to day to raise crops and livestock to feed their families, with most of what they needed covered by their own production rather than indirectly through wages. That's an extremely purposeful existence.
everyone here hates him but i've never seen a criticism outside of
>he's an idiot
why is he so wrong?
He plays it safe.
My only complaint is he isn't willing to question 9/11 the same way he did for the other stuff, even though it is so tantamount to current US foreign policy.
No matter how he writes if off, it is still a gaping hole.
Write drunk, edit sober? More like write drunk, throw everything in the trash the next day. This is the kind of insane trite I write when I'm shitfaced. It's always some sort of nonsensical erotic fiction. Worst part is I blackout and don't ever remember writing it, so I'm not sure if I do it as a joke or if I'm an actual retard.

I love you anon, keep on trolling yourself.
/lit/ I think we should Attempt the impossible. We write a coherent novel, with an actual plot, readable writing, and less forced memes. I know it seems impossible since the last attempts have ended dreadfully but I believe they were just learning mechanisms so that we can improve our way of handling how we do things.
I think the best way to handle how we choose the plot is by rolling or deciding it as a group. Once one is chosen we can select a subgenere just for specifics.

Scifi- hard or space opera

/lit/, I've never really read much poetry but I'd like to start. Where should I begin?
You're in luck and you've come to the right place. There one or a couple of douches on /lit/ who love to post their poetry all day every day.
Poetry is dead and you shouldn't want to get into it at all, but I won't stop you.
