I had to read all this shit for a class, am I a liberal yet?
No that takes reading socialist thought and finally understanding that all world conflicts have been over unfair distribution of resources taken by the rich and then used to bribe the masses into doing what they want, comvining them that bullshit like race matters more than class
Are these considered pleb tier by /lit/ folks? I think we should have read pic related just to make the class a little more objective.
Tell us the premise of that story you're probably never going to write.
I have accidentally promised to write the script for a short movie, about 20 min long. I need a fucking plot and I'm completely out of ideas.
It's suppossed to be mystery/horror story set in a city. We already have the main character cast. It centers around a man circa 40-50 years old who is haunted by nightmares and some kind of mystery he has to solve.
Think "In the mouth of madness" or "Hellraiser" but more low-key.
Plz lit you're my only hope, just throw me something.
Fade in: a guy goes on 4chan looking for movie ideas. Another poster trackes him down and fucks him in the ear until his cock comes out the other side of his head. Fade out.
It's shooting later today.
Man falls in love with woman while working a case. By working the case, he finds out that woman was a robot/alien/elder god that only looked and acted like a human being the whole time.
Kind of like Her but mixed up with horror/mystery elements.
Any good contemporary Muslim lit?
Naguib Mahfouz is pretty dope, he won the Nobel some time back. He doesn't actually write about religion a lot though, so not sure if that's what you want. I'd recommend Miramar, it's about a murder in a hotel in 1960s Alexandria where all the guests have some kind of relation to the Egyptian revolution.

Are their any philosophers that BTFO the illusion of love? Ive never heard of a philosopher critique it other than minor parts of shopenhauers "on love" essay.
Looking for examples of other literary figures, Japanese or not, who embodied masculine ideals and themes of masculinity, masochism, and the human body into their work, as well as being public intellectuals. Stuff like Soseki, Junichiro, etc.
Write something in the style of an author
Guess who others are emulating
I'll start with Thomas Bernhard.
Questions that don't deserve their own thread, stupid questions etc.
Interesting take on things. WWII definitely produced a lot of important thinkers.
Bookshelf thread: No tidying edition
I'm starting to think it is 2deep4me, because I just can't see the reason for all the hype.
Is it worth the price /lit/?
as an amazon shareholder i think it's wonderful that they are advertising on 4chan, but i'd rather they hype those new "dash" buttons than the kindle, and personally i just read on the iphone which is quite comfy in ibooks, also they need to put more marketing muscle behind the echo, we all know what a kindle does, what ppl don't know is what the fuck use the god damn echo is
>whole family commits suicide
>fights on the front lines in the most brutal war in the history of the world
>beats Bertrand Russel in a battle of wits
>ends his whole career
>writes the most influential piece of analytic philosophy to date using a series of enigmatic aphorisms which vaguely connect to each other
>Hits stupid kids who can't math
Someone explain to me why he isn't GOAT
Hurting children is wrong. If you support Wittgenstein, you support child abuse. If you support child abuse, you're violent and immoral. If you're violent and immoral, you have no business being a philosopher, whose jon is to educate and learn, not support the battery of the weak by mentally unstable homosexuals.
Wittgenstein was wrong then and he's wrong now. But to refuse to discuss this failure would be to ignore his crimes against the young. Please when reading his work, remember that it was composed by a suspected pedophile who was quite evil even though he never said what exactly he was doing in Germany in 1953
You're at the library reading a book and this guy slaps it out of your hands. What do you do?
Look calmly in his face. I'm taller than him. I rip that stupid bandana off his forehead and shove it in his prissy little mouth.
"You thought you were Hal Incadenza" I told him, gently reaching into my pocket for my Swiss Army Pocketknife, "But you were really just that gay guy who robbed people and dressed up. Or actually you were that gross dad he masturbated in his kids' clothes or something weird, I don't know, it was a long book, unncessarily long."
