Am I about to get memed?
Daily IJ thread I guess.
Is it true that "world building" is just a crutch for bad fantasy or is an intergral part of the book?
Is this worth reading?
nigga u spying on me? i literally just torrented the audiobook and started playing it one second before i refreshed the page,shit seems pretty patrish so far, "story of civilization" tier epic history
Hey I'm pretty average intelligence (think somewhere between 105 and 115 IQ). Is reading literature a waste of my time? You guys seem like you're a cut above most other boards in terms of intelligence
Whoever tells you that intelligence is innate is lying.
Read literature, read philosophy, learn a language! You can be as smart as the best of mankind if you apply yourself intellectually. Man does not become brilliant by nature, but by habit.
Wrote this in an hour, Talk to me /lit/erati... pls.
After drinking a liter of boxed merlot, I had smoked pack of Camel Blues and watched enough Chopped to give a lecture on how much Food Network
is too much. The light buzz achived from the cheap red wine had worn down to the point where I had started feeling sorry for myself again and
even jerking off for a solid hour to soft-core internet porn could not cut the sting. And it's only 11 o' clock, fuck.
What the hell happened to young adult literature? It turned from "books for 13-17 year olds that adults could also enjoy" to "books for children". Not only is most of it bad, it's so vanilla and safe.
Ender's Game fits in the former category, back when YA was good; look at good YA fiction of the 80s and 90s, they had sex, swearing, violence, they'd never be labeled YA by today's pussy standards.
Is theology dead? Most living philosophers appear to be Atheists.
Can anyone recommend some books on contemporary theology, please?
Do you listen to music while reading? What do you listen to?
I like Nietzsche too much.
What are some other philosophers somewhat similar to him with other interesting ideas?
I have already read Stirner.
Heidegger is Nietzsche's true heir. Read him.
Stirner is quite bad and his fanboys don't read.
Aristotle is better than both.
There's literally nothing in Nietzsche or Stirner that disproves Aristotelian teleology.
Umberto Eco just died
okay guys i'm worried you forgot so i'm starting the thread.
p.s. i know we agreed to ~15 pages a day but i don't like to stop reading midway through a paragraph so i stopped at p.23.
doubledactyl Malachi Mulligan is fucking flesh and bone, man. i can't believe I waited so long to read this book.
>Behind him he heard Buck Mulligan club with his heavy bathtowel the leader shoots of ferns or grasses.
>--Down, sir. How dare you, sir?
get in here guys
also i was thinking this would make a good schedule for the next 4 days:
because these are sensible stopping points and they average about 15 pages anyway. idk how well it'll hold up when we get going but it seems better this way. (p.s. i'm using Vintage edish)
what do you all think?
That's weird, I just got the book yesterday and I just got up to that part, didn't even know about the reading group
I'm gonna admit it, I'm struggling with it, not really sure what's going on and the French and Latin is annoying. Is there a good guide online that I can read along with?
Just read the fucking book you weirdos, there's enough to chew on mentally based on how it feels you don't need several hundred versions of a dictionary to check every word
But whatever, one of my favorite parts at the beggining is the milk math word problem where bucky gets the bill from the milkwoman
