what's the most emotionally devastating book on this list?
What am I in for?
you're bout to be sent up for twice-nine!
Do you really believe strength and intelligence are mutually exclusive?
Is this just jealousy from weak nerds who want to feel superior?
Or are physically smaller people really smarter than stronger people?
where to start with burroughs, /lit/?
This. And then you can move on to the Tarzan series.
I have to write an informal essay on anything related to education, any ideas?
Recommend me good books on morbid reality: war, genocide, cults, natural disasters, mental illness, poverty, famine, crime, etc.
you guys keep hurring and durring about how great this book is but it's boring as hell. i thought this was fiction too, i don't get it.

What does lit think about Nausea (Jean-Paul Sartre)?
After reading it, I wasn't too sure whether I enjoyed it. I seemed to find other lighter novels on existentialism, namely The Myth of Sisyphus, far more pleasing to the mind. Nausea was a bit too hard hitting for my liking, it seemed to change my outlook on life completely.

interesting but really haphazard, he fills people with tons of pop sociological ideas that people think are huge, world changing revelations but are actually only half explained in the book with any opposing evidence omitted, leading to stuff like the 10,000 hour meme (already proven wrong), the "50 person" meme (insanely dubious)
read his books, then read the supporting and opposing evidence
>book doesnt have emojis

>he doesn't know that you'll never be great if you aren't published and acclaimed by age 25
Is there something to read beyond Nietzsche? I've been on the train of Philosophy since the start and I think this is the final station.I've been told Heidegger but does he really add up anything substantially new?
These 2 are the philosophical descendants of Nietzsche. True thinkers in the best sense. And we are lucky enough to have them around today and see them actually speak and so on.
>I don't really look up to anybody, I guess I have some favorite people that I like a lot. But I don't emulate anybody, I'm not that fascinated by human achievements. At one point in my life I was more inspired by people but as I've grown humans stopped being my source of inspiration. It's all internal.
Was he right?
Do you agree with him or not?
