I'd like smb to prove me wrong and encourage me to read his work.
essential texts on libertarian socialism?
I've never read the book and I've only seen this clip from the movie. Am I supposed to hate this character?
And but so, some retard tried to eat Infinite Jest.

WHY NOT EAT A BLACK WOMAN'S BOOK
How did Menelaus hold a "firm grasp" on running water? This book is stupid.
which works of dickens have you read?
how did you feel about them? which did you like the most? why?
this year i've read great expectations, david copperfield, and a tale of two cities and i found them all to be amazing. two cities was the most urgent and concise but i felt that great expectations was more complete. copperfield is hella bloated but still felt worthwhile. basically every paragraph he writes is good. damn.
I have read those three, hard tomes, and bleak house ... obviously his talent for creating characters in a few brush strokes is a strength, and he is very much a writer of depicting social problems in entertaining ways, something later american naturalists made more dry and boring, less eccentric.

Opinions on "I Have No Mouth and I Must Scream"?
Could this man be considered a philosopher?
Sure, he did some research on scientific matters, such as urinary and fecal incontinence (Screw cancer, let's make advancements on the art of pee and poo), but most of his claims are very subjective and opinion-based, particularly on "the future of and illusion" and "civilization and it's malcontents".
Is he the father of psichoanalysis? A philosopher on disguise? A cocaine-addicted hobo?
Yes he is the father of psychoanalysis. But he isn't a philosopher because 1. His theories were gathered from case studies and is centered around the analytic situation. 2. He's more concerned with answers rather than questions.
