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."

Latin and Greek appreciation thread, /lit/! What have you bought recently? Did you enjoy your last Greek/Latin lecture? Recommendation for any kind of book? Can't you find a copy of a Classic in your country? Let it be

hello /lit/ I'm trekking in the Himalyas for a month starting next week with a group of friends We want to pack tight so we're only bringing 10books max. I like mythology and historical books, some of them like Crime while others like Romance and Drama. Could you recommend some books ? Also whats your opinion on Blood Meridian.

Where do you go to have discussions about philosophy on the internet? I think I've reached a point where I absorbed most useful knowledge from this board and realized most of it revolves around repeating the same 20 threads with almost identical arguments and trolling. I'm mainly interested in medieval scholasticism & theist metaphysics in general as well as Descartes/Spinoza/Leibniz and that kind of stuff

Hey, /lit/. I'm at a point in existence where I've sort of become 'aware' of the truth that is meta-modernism/post-modernist perspective. Finding infinite complexities and meanings in every sort of sign, symbol, or object that I see. Is this going to cause a great deal of anxiety to me at some point in the future, or am I just going to be eternally happy?

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.

Maybe it's just brain problems, but there's something I don't understand about Cloud Atlas. It's pretty straightforward for the most part; every part has the same basic premise as the story about the Maori and Moriori, in which a stronger entity unjustly preys upon a weaker one for selfish or evil reasons. So there's the doctor and Ewing, Ayers and Frobisher, the Swanneke/Big Oil cabal and the concerned citizens, Corpocracy and Union, and finally, the almost perfect retelling with the Kona and Valley Men. What I don't understand is how Cavendish fits in. Who is the real antagonist in that story, and why are they doing what they do? Is it the thugs? His brother? The nursing home staff? None seem to fit as well as those from the other stories. And the whole part in general seems kind of pointless, and weak compared to the others. Did I miss something? Feel free to discuss your take on the novel in general; I thought it was great and would love to hear what others thought.

I'm applying for medical school right now and having trouble getting started on my personal statement. I've read a few really good personal statements and they all involve these life changing journeys to foreign countries and/or disadvantaged applicants, etc. I don't think I have any experiences like that. I volunteer, work, have the grades, and love people, but I don't have any exceptional story about how some mentor took me under his wing and taught me to care about people. Honestly, I'm really tired of trying to impress people. What should I do?

Tough books

Hay /lit/, I'm planning on reading GWF Hegel's "Phenomenology of Spirit" pretty soon. I took a run at it already and failed miserably. I never read Kant, Hume, Spinoza, Leibniz, or Aristotle, but I have read Plato, and I'm working on Marx's "Capital" right now. Do any of you have tips for reading "Phenomenology of Spirit?" I'll share what I know about tough reads to get things kicked off.

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?

De acuerdo amigos /lit/eratos. Deseo abordar la magnum opus de Foster Wallace, La Broma Infinita. ¿Existe algún otro libro que deba leer antes para comprenderlo mejor o puedo empezar directamente? Gracias por sus respuestas.

Is there anything spooky or otherworldly about hallucinogenic drugs or is it just the brain reacting to a bombardment of chemicals and nothing more? What are some good books that deal with this subject?

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.

when does an author have an obligation to finish a story? or does he ever? other creative professions aren't awarded this luxury if they are on commission, would a sculptor not be under a time limit to finish a commissioned piece? I believe an artist can take all the time they want creating a work of art and then offering it for sale, but once they have entered an agreement, such as grrm has with HBO the "I'm not your bitch" excuse starts to run a bit thin. especially when every day that passes it seems more and more true that the story will end in a different medium than it started

Hi, /lit/ Are there any audiobooks, radio novels, story telling, podcasts, or even radio soaps you would recommend? I want to listen something in English, but all the audiobook I've tried so far are awful (not matter whether actually I like the book or not).

when watching the film

8 posts and 0 image replies omitted. Click to view.
Watching a film is fundamentally different from reading a book. However, there are adaptations that are so well-made that - taking into account that you have an enormous to read list - watching them instead of reading is the way to go. I'd like you to recommend some adaptations for all of us who tend to compromise the love of reading for time.
