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."

Is anyone else terrified that the next two books in ASOIF will be heavily adjusted for the Hollywood show? I can't stand seeing the actors and shit being spammed all over. I haven't seen the show, but what I've tasted so far doesn't taste very good. the first thing you notice is the characters age. Hollywood made them age like 10 years or something. Sansa looks more like a collage girl than a medieval bride. It might be more political correct, but it ruins the enviornment, they could just as well have replaced swords with assault rifles, lol. Anyone else scared the books will be shitty cause of the tv-show?

I wonder, is there such thing as an objective, unbiased love? Or do we all just worship the image we created in our head, based on our personal belief and experience about the object of our affection? What do you think? Also can anyone recommend me some good books about philosophy and nature of love?

What are the best books with a sense of decay to them? Preferably fantasy. I've already read New Sun, Lord of the Rings, and Second Apocalypse. Also, preferably not low fantasy, had enough asoiaf and First Law. Atmospheres not dissimilar to that of Dark Souls, if any of you have played it.

Has anyone read these books? I don't plan to, I'm just curious about the portrayal of the hacking. Is it shown in any detail? What sort of things? Is it realistic, as far as you know?

when we have to read aloud in English class there are often foreign loan words, proper nouns, names etc that I have no idea how to pronounce. Other people don't seem to have any problem with it. I have no idea if they actually know how to pronounce them or they just pretend they do. Anyways how do I stop embarrasing myself.

I started reading Dennett's “Intuition Pumps” and thought we could have a discussion about his "dozen general thinking tools." Feel free to explain if you think I've misrepresented what Dennett is saying. I'll split up the thinking tools into the positive ones and the “boom crutches,” or tools which throw up smoke instead of shedding light. I think /lit/ would greatly benefit by following #3. I'll post the lists in my responses.

How do you organize your bookshelves/folders, /lit/? There are so many fucking books that just don't really fit distinctly into one genre, and I'm not sure where to put them.
