But, perhaps, to be true philosophers, we mortals should not be conscious of so living or so striving. So soon as I hear that such or such a man gives himself out for a philosopher, I conclude that, like the dyspeptic old woman, he must have "broken his digester."

Not quite /lit/ related but possible. Literature encompasses alot of things after all. Tarkovsky's Sculpting in Time talks about the brilliance of film as its ability to manipulate time within each shot and create its own rhythm, which is why he likes poetic long takes as opposed to having a lot of edits. In a way you could also link it to postmodern philosophical concepts like 'becoming' and conceive of film as a medium of representing the pulsating nature of the world. Of course some single shot film like Russian Ark have been made but it doesn't really adopt the strength of Tarkovsky's theory of poetic time-images. Animation, which is another medium besides film that I'm into, holds that key in my opinion. Many animated movies still conceive of cinematic shots and cinematic shooting when basically the idea of animation is you have full control over both the time and content sculpted. You have control over the flow of everything within the film. There are moments in A Nightmare Before Christmas' This is Halloween song where the moments flow into each other without the need for edit, but the song as a whole still needs editing. Do you think an animation could be conceived of that eschews the idea of cinematic editing altogether for the full force of the poetic shot?

If my thoughts are just electrical signals or neurons (I.e something physical) does that mean if I imagine myself as prime minister of the UK then it's just as real as David Cameron being the PM according to the regular interpretation of the fact?

Forgetful..

Hi! I am in a weird situation. I had a friend with whom we were really close. We both lived in the same country for a long time. Now she left to go somewhere else and she has completely forgotten about me. I came here looking for a quote to send her that will shake her up. A quote related to people who forget their friends when they can have fun without them. It might be a bit of a longshot but Thank you in advance!

Is Family Guy postmodern or post-postmodern? (Seth McFarlane is an accomplished author/social theorist so this is literature related) What is you favorite Family Guy jokes? I like these: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vcggwUrx5WE http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=W23LKD9Z1hw

I don't know how many of you were here four years ago, but this place was a shitpile. Even more elitism than there is now but less actual discussion of literature. I don't think I saw a single post on Gravity's Rainbow that made me believe the poster had read the book. I came back a few days ago because I was curious, and now I see relatively intelligent thoughts on Pynchon regularly. There are shitposts but the goodpost:shitpost ratio is way better than it used to be. There only used to be one tripfriend though (I think his name was Lewis). So it's gotten worse in that respect, but mostly better. The history of /lit/ is a history of progress. The arc of the moral universe is long but it bends towards justice. Discuss.

Let's get a moral realism thread going. Obviously there is such a thing as "morality"-- we have a word for it. What is the nature of this thing called "morality"? Is it nominal? Universal? Is it natural to humans? Or is it artificial to humans-- viz., do humans construct it? How is morality actualized? Through thought or action? Through gestures or contracts? And what of moral qualities? Are "virtues" and "vices" real traits of an individual identity? How do these traits exist, metaphysically speaking? More, what is "identity", and what is its relation to action? Are "virtues" and "vices" words to describe habit? Habits of what? Of thought? Of action? Is there a such thing as moral progress or regress? How can we improve ourselves, morally speaking? Be sure to mention what kind of conceptual schema your description of morality relies upon. Where does morality fit into the whole of human experience? Where is its place in epistemology? And what of aesthetics? Are morality and aesthetics at all related? After all, morality is generally taken to be within the purview of human valuation/value judgments. So, what is the conceptual nature of morality in a broader, axiological context? And what about linguistically? Morality usually implements terms like "good" and "bad". Do "good" and "bad" in the moral sense share their meaning with other usage of "good" and "bad" in common parlance? Do you think that morality can be descriptive, or does morality necessarily implicate "prescriptive" or "normative" language? And, finally, if morality is a thing held in common by humans, where does morality fit into a sociological and political framework? Do leaders lead the State's construction of morality, or does the State reflect the morality of the people? Different cultures doubtlessly reflect systems of morality that differ from one another... why is this? But, simultaneously, there are common threads amidst the moralities of different cultures... why is that? Let's hear it, /lit/.
