What are the best history books that can give me a description of the "big picture"? A good overview of world history?
Also, what are the essential History Philosophers?
You probably won't find one.
I think Schopenhauer was right in saying that all you can really do is acquaint yourself with the general 'Zeitgeist' of a given time/place.
There is simply too much 'history' to meaningfully learn; you either go in for a specific time/place, or else flounder. The "big picture" is too big to appreciate every specific, or even see up close; you have stand way back.
Haven't actually read it, but maybe pic related will help

The best works of art inspires our love for the truth. With every bit of honesty that we recognise in art there is some disdain for the lack of authenticity in the regular world.
But does art, as the most polished source of novelty, sanction itself in society as the only space where honesty is allowed to publicly exist?
So you have to be an artist if you want to be as honest as allowable.
Art pulls the most honest people towards itself like a brain drain, there would be no need for lots of works if everyone was honest.
What book comes closest to being Vaporwave: The Novel.
What are some must-reads book if you want to get a decent life-wisdom?
I'd start with these:
Dostoyevsky - Notes from Underground
Schopenhauer - Wisdom of Life
Stirner - Ego and its Own

What went wrong?
Is it safe to say that he would have never said this if Kant never lived?
Are there any works on sexual capital and how it works in the same was as traditional capital when it comes to power relations?
you won't find much because normies are the bourgeoisie of the sex world and don't want to give up their capital, but you'll still see them call for all other capital to be redistributed because it's trendy
Dude I just fucking read a little of this from the poems for the millennium anthology. Holy shit is this the bomb or what? I think I'm gonna buy it.
Lit how do you get in the habit of finding time to read? I always seem to find myself tied to using the internet and listening to music and making shit posting threads on various websites. I never seem to make much time for myself to actually read books, it's like I'm too lazy.
>It's like I'm too lazy
You are. If you want to read, just start already. It's not like you want to climb mount everest, just do it
Am I retarded for thinking this was bland as fuck?
Such an important work as this, it has had its themes borrowed, exaggerated, inverted and expounded upon in the decades since.
In the same way that Monty Python feels dated, and Doom seems old fashioned - it is precisely because of its newness that it has been built upon, raided and ravaged until all that's left is bones.
