So tell me /lit/, who's your favorite presocratic philosopher and master of thought ?
What are some prime examples of books that absolutely are not read for plot.
WHY DON'T YOU KIDS LIKE THE YATES?
I haven't read anything in weeks
I've seen this posted here a few times, but has anyone actually read it? It looks like it could potentially be an amusing time-waster if I didn't have to pay for it.
Where do I start with the BTK killer?
Found this in sorta-local library. Sitting in library with it now. Do I take it? I owe the lib a few overdue books that I don't have on me. Lit, what do I do?
I want to. How the hell do I go about it? They have the metal-detectors by every entrance/exit. I thought they wouldn't. It's a nice town. Do I just remove the metal shit on the inside? I have a backpack on me, which makes things easier.
positivism vs dialectics go
>Tfw you wonder how on earth Russell managed to get such a good reputation in the field of philosophy
It was down to the edgy atheism, right?
By that, I don't mean that atheism is edgy in and by itself; just Russell's version.
Chesterton ran so many rings around him back then, it makes for good reading.
Is there anything comfier?
Also, reading spots thread
is this actually useful or a waste of time? I've read like 50 pages but english isn't my main language, I understand it but it's a bit of a struggle
Your thoughts /lit/?
I hate it. A lot. But I'll finish it.
>cheap way to signal open mindedness towards other cultures
>transient and passive experiences that require little effort
>strongly implies sexual activity / lack of sexual activity (polar opposites)
>have had their relative utilities severely diminished in the globalised internet world so are mainly status symbols
>implying it's not the other way around
stay pleb while I absorb the cultural experiences first handedly and grow deeper untill I discover the ultimate form of Humanity and transcend literature all together
Any recommendations for those starting with Stephen King?
Start anywhere you like. Some good ones are The Long Walk, Under the Dome, 11/22/63, Salem's Lot, It, The Stand...
They're all accessible. The only two I haven't liked, that I've tried to read, are Doctor Sleep and Bazaar of Bad Dreams, which both left me with a bad taste in my mouth.
What do you think of Alex Sheremet and co.?
>"I wonder what it is between him and Walker"
>"I don't know what it is. I don't believe I want to know"
What did Stoner mean by this?
