Does greentext have merit as a literary art form? I mean, the intention is personal, as if it was a story told between friends instead of a story told to a reader. Does that have a place or will it always be considered an informal art? I ask this question because an anon wrote a full novel (400 pages) in greentext, and it evolved from a simple lewd-story, to a full on laugh/feel/cry/smile fest of tales. It made me realize the writing style is completely untapped, do you think it might become more popular in the future, or only be a niche with 4chan? I don't know /Lit/'s taste, but you can try the story (if you want) https://docs.google.com/document/d/1KvjPwwYXYNMopylbhQNl5e3_UFvV8qP_We72xWYCmao

Besides his amazing writing and cool name Ambrose Bierce had a pretty interesting life as well. What are some other great authors that also had very interesting lives?

"The fanatical atheists are like slaves who are still feeling the weight of their chains which they have thrown off after hard struggle. They are creatures who—in their grudge against traditional religion as the 'opium of the masses'—cannot hear the music of the spheres." - Albert Einstein

What are some good books on the theory of writing? I only know of The Elements of Style, but it seems to divide critics. Is it worth the read?

Is this guy the father of American folk tales? No doubt they were jealous of Europe for its rich history full of myths and legends so they had to invent their own.

How is the techno-logical dynamic, agent of technical epochs and organizations, articulated with the operatorlike, anthropo-logical dynamic of anticipation? Fuck you Bernard Stiegler, fuck you.

So it seems like most people on here implicitly agree that a major in English or Philosophy is largely worthless, because those subjects are more richly discovered on your own rather than a corrupted higher academia discussion based setting and all of that bullshit... right? So my question is, if literature and philosophy are what you are interested in pursuing, what the fuck SHOULD you major in? What are you/have you majored in? How did it help you?

On Politics

Has anyone read this yet? I'm nearly up to book two and it's absolutely fantastic. As a broad history of political thought and philosophy spanning from Herodotus though to modernity. Are there other books like this one? I bought it because I was looking for a history of political philosophy and I haven't been able to find a good solid compendium until this one.

>I have the feeling that Henríquez Ureña -clearly it is absurd to say this-, that he had read everything, Everything. And at the same time he did not use that knowledge to overwhelm the conversation. He was a very polite man, and, as the Japanese -He did not like to argue; he preferred it when his interlocutor was right and not he himself, which is a fairly rare virtue, especially in this country [Argentina], right? -Borges Do you know of any books on people or societies like Henriquez Ureña, /lit/?
