Did Lolita want it?
Books that depicts boredom, doxa and the mundane?
Also, is it possible to deliberately evoke boredom instantly with an image? (watching something 10 times or for a day doesn't count)
Well for one, I find that picture to be incredible interesting.
In every photo that I find on 4chan it's someone trying to relay a message.

It just is.
Thanks op, anon

Post dem stacks
Paid 28 burgerbucks for these.
Sticking to English, French, and German, which language has the best poetry, the best philosophy, and the best novels?
I'm too cynical.
Which books will make me hate people less?
What are the major western/European languages to learn to get access to the best/most great lit?
So far my list is
What I missing?
English (though you already know it I guess), Spanish and Portuguese (seriously) and Russian. That'll pretty much give you the whole canon, though there's plenty of great literature in various other European languages.
And that should be Ancient Greek specifically.
what made you turn to books?
Most of the book readers ive met fall into these categories:
>ugly book readers
>gay book readers
>no degree compensating readers
>think that they going to get laid because they read readers
>indian self help book readers
I'm decent looking, 20 y/o, and majoring in Materials Engineering. I like to read because I enjoy expanding my knowledge and because I have a disposition toward reading/writing for enjoyment.
That being said, I do wish I was slightly better looking.

Books that changed your life thread
This is the first book that really got me into history. I've learned so much about the world and our past since then. I owe a lot to this book.
Daily reminder if you haven't teleologically suspended the ethical at least twice by the time you're 25 you literally haven't a chance

Has anyone else noticed metaphysics coming back in a big way over recent years? It's pretty funny (in a smug/spiteful way) to see just how many scientific roads are leading back to the metaphysics from which that field has long tried to divorce itself in the pursuit of empiricism.
Dust off your Kant, dig out your Schopenhauer and reread your Nietzsche.
Hey, it's hardly new; we've had meme scientists like Sam Harris (Ben Stiller) playing around with the same kind of question for ages now.
I'm just happy to see names like Kant even mentioned again, after years of everyone throwing themselves at the feet of 20th century meme philosophers; like 99% of all post-modernists, for a start.
Hey, /lit/ how should I begin to get into literature. I'm not entirely sure how I should start.
so /lit/ i'm taking a seminar on marxist theory in the fall, what are the essentials of marxist criticism/theory? essentials meaning works, points, ideas, etc.
