UN-WITTGENSTEINIZATION... 10 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
UN-WITTGENSTEINIZATION MANIFESTO From this day on we, the public of /lit/, readers and writers alike, shall ignore any post that refers to Wittgenstein, either explicitly or implicitly. We shall not read it, we shall not reply to it. Wittgenstein was a great philosopher, that may be so, but to /lit/ his name has become a only buzzword supposedly refuting anything that one might want to refute. People referring to him no longer try to point to one or another of his arguments, only to his intangible 'general worldview' as if that answers all possible questions. We do not deny people their right to hold Wittgensteinian views. We just require to formulate your arguments, just so we would be able to recognize those who understand and reason about philosophy and those who only cast spells like 'wittgenstein'. ___________________________________________________ I recognize that my manifesto of general English writing skills are shit, therefore I encourage anyone who feels up to the task rewrite the manifesto properly. In fact, I believe that it would benefit the whole of /lit/ if threads with this or similar content reappeared periodically for a while.

Sup /lit/ Just finished reading Stephen King's "The Breathing Method". Really enjoyed it, the writing style, the ambiance, all that shit. Anyone have suggestions for similar books? Call me a pleb for not enjoying falling asleep to Siddhartha, I don't care.

So I'm new to /lit/, so I'm trying to get the "essential hated books/authors" understanding, since that is usually what boards are about e.g. /v/ hating every Bethesda game or hating overrated games like Gone Home, it's part of the board culture. Can you help me out? I'm expecting it's literature along the lines with The Hunger Games or Harry Potter, but please tell me

>tl;dr: read the last paragraph. I'm new to /lit/, but I do appreciate literature--your Nabokov, Pynchon and what not. All I know is /lit/ is one of the least productive boards out there. /a/utists are out there trying to create a waifu out of Raspberry Pi, /g/ is creating a game, /frz/ has the most thoroughly archived compilation of shipping fanfic I've seen to date. /lit/ hasn't contributed much to 4chan, and is one of the most neglected boards out there. I'm here to suggest an idea. It came to me when I was reading Philmarilion (if you don't know what it is, go here: http://www.docdroid.net/4wdl/everything.pdf.html) and mfw it read almost like an autistic Pale Fire. 4chan is the originator of the meme culture, a nameless collective of creative, obssessed autists. We are our own culture, therefore it makes sense that we have our own literature. I propose one of the following: i) that /lit/ compile 4chan posts/docs that are of literary merit (or for the lulz), and make a textbook of 4chan literature. ii) that /lit/ should actually endeavor to create a brand of 4chan literature, like Philmarilion, to share with the boards, be it for the lulz, or actual literary merit.

Thanks /lit/, this was a good book. I finished it a few days ago and though I started reading something else, it stuck in my head and been growing on me more and more.

I'm looking for this book, but featuring this pictured UK cover over the American one. Will it be written the same, or contain language discrepancies? Furthermore, does anyone in the US happen to HAVE this book? I will but it off you for $20 if you can deliver it before the 21st.

I got really drunk last night and found this right next to where I passed out. I obviously just scribbled it down. "How do you make it go away? Life, it swallows you whole. Leaving you nothing but yourself. That hollow feeling, the feeling that is always with you. Growing, boring a hole into your soul. How do you escape it? How do you make it all just go away? I wear a mask that covers it all, so no one else can see. Am I alone? Should I just break it and let it be?" I have no idea what made me do this, I cant remember a thing. I don't write poems nor read poetry. Should I be worried? And how would you say the poem was shit?

What's /lit/'s opinion on Julian Barnes? Just out of curiosity. My father keeps telling me he's amazing, and his recommendations have always been great, so I'll read him some day.

Friend just recommended my the drenai saga books. Did some looking they're like 300-400 pgs apiece so even though there's a few of them, it's not too substantial. Are they really any good? And i know they're almost all detached from one another, so which ones are the best?

What is oppression? What does it mean to say that men dominate women? Why we're the situations of men who worked on the mines worse then their wife's? This is not an anti-.feminist thread. I'd like a feminist to answer, btw. There are probably good feminist answers to those questions, I just don't know what they are.

Why is popular young adult literature so shitty, /lit/? Pic related, I don't intend on reading it.
