What is /lit/s response to STEMfags who call philosophy pointless opinions of idiotic people?
Ignore them. Why do you care what other people think about philosophy? Do you read literature to influence the opinions of other people, or to educate yourself on different subjects?
Life is too short to care what other people think, dude.
philosophy is goof for understanding how ideology operates, influencing power structures in society. it's good at understanding culture and all it's subjective biases and prejudices.
science is good at studying physical nature from an objective and impartial perspective, helping create technologies and services that can be of use to mankind.
BOTH are necessary to any serious scholar or thinker. they are the yin to each other's yang.
Has yours shown up yet?
Is Nick Land just a rehashing of Deleuze and Guattari, or does he have something new to offer to the philosophical (or anti-philosophical) front? Non-dialectic discourse that focuses on unity perspectives appears to be the main flagship statement of Land’s. The essay “Meltdown” is a nice summation of his overall anti-ideological outlook on life. Thoughts on the essay (it’s only 7 pages, so please read) or on Land in general?

Why is /lit/ under 'Other' on the main page when it clearly falls under both 'Interest' and 'Creative?'
What fruit is this?
Moot was an uncultured illiterate for whom anime was a driving force when he was a little boy.
now he is an uncultured illiterate who has neither the pride or personal integrity to own up to what he created and the reactionary cultural forces it represents in today's youth, hence selling the site to an ESL seller of personal data.
>What fruit is this?
Its a cunt. Or an arsehole. Or balls. Depends on how you eat it.
>Why is /lit/ under 'Other'
The boards are organised in a certain way for cultural reasons. Lurk more.
Anyone with the new CoLot49? Would you mind showing us a picture of it? I'd like to the deckled edges
ITT: pleb fiction you unironically enjoy
Who here fell for the Paris meme?
The Paris of the novels is not the Paris of today.
Today, it's mainly a giant toilet with some people living in it, looking for that last place where no-one has pissed yet.
A similar fate befell Vienna (see World of Yesterday) - from cultural center of the world to nothing.
emblematic places turned into touristic traps filled with annoying niggers trying to sell you shit every two steps, dirt in the streets and having to avoid gypsy scammers and pickpockets wherever you go
Is bell hooks worth checking out?
I'm somewhat of a Marxists but I'm still undecided in regard to Feminism, especially the intersectional kind. Anyway, I'd like to read some Feminist theory.
Is bell hooks the right place to start?
personally i think feminism is sort of an inherent part of marxism as a whole, or in the very least lends itself to the idea
either way yeah bell hooks is a pretty good starting place, she does a good job at being critical and analytical without stooping into bullshit identity privilege politics
Do you know of any books that discuss an alternative world hierarchy?
I have been thinking that Nature is the most noble thing on Earth, followed by Animals, followed by Humans. Most humans act like a destructive plague, destroying nature and killing animals and other humans for no reason whatsoever. If I was God, I would hate humans for ruining nature and killing innocent beings. So it is my theory that nature and animals are above humans.
also anarcho-primitivism, if you rummage around in there you will find similarly extreme people
some of them are relatively mainstream while holding views like "we should kill 95% of humans and live in harmony with nature"
So, what is the last sentence of your novel?
What is some well written literature that can help me achieve enlightenment (whatever that means), preferably science fiction.
No idea if the ones on the Brown Pill reading list are, perhaps someone can confirm.
Has any other philosopher destroyed Nietzsche to the extent that Jesus does? He totally undermines the radical freedom of the Overman. It would all be true even if he weren't God.
> "For whoever wishes to save his life will lose it; but whoever loses his life for My sake will find it!”
No greater words have been spoken.
Give me the gist
Does anyone else here feel pathetic for not having attended Yale / Oxford / Cambridge etc?
Feels so fucking bad.
I have a crush on a girl who attended a top university (she was also privately educated) and I'm too intimidated by this fact to talk to her considering I attended a mediocre one.
