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 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?

I begin tucking him into bed and he tells me, “Daddy check for monsters under my bed.” I look underneath for his amusement and see him, another him, under the bed, staring back at me quivering and whispering, “Daddy there’s somebody on my bed.”

Is there a guide how i can improve my writing? I'm 100% sure that my ideas for books are great, that i can create inspiring works if only i knew how to write properly. It's not that i can't write at all, i can write better than the average joe but when i try to bring my ideas to paper it sounds foolish and idiotic. In my head i have scenes, plots, conversations, characters all mapped out but i'm unable to express them properly with words. Or should i maybe switch over to movies?

Hey /lit/ I know this isnt /r/ but I was hoping you could help me find a novel (might be a series I only read the first one if thats the case) Where humanity is exterminated from Earth and given free reign over the other planets, except Europa i think....Because apparently Cephlapods are the master alien race and we were killing them. twas very sci-fi and i read it when i was like 9 so I only remember these really vague details. Any help would be appreciated if this is a non rules thread go ahead and delete and ban w/e pic obviously unrelated but adorable.

Is there a book with a similar plot to the old world blues addition to new vegas. By that I mean where the smartest people are allocated a place where they can experiment in any way they want so long as it doesnt interfere with the rest of society. Even if it ends up doing do?

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.

What is /lit/s opinion of A People's History of the United States? What do you think about Howard Zinn? I'm really enjoying the narrative and it's alternative/revisionist perspective on US History, however I want to recognize whatever biases the author may have and not blindly believe whatever he says. I did some research online and for the most part Zinn seems to be a credible author.

Why didn't the Greeks fully apply their intellectual talents to technology? Where did the disdain for “labor” in works like Plato come from? Given the importance of technology and the new paths it opens up (for example the telegraph, navigational techniques, and shipbuilding expertise were a large part of the success of the British Empire) why didn't they explore nature deeper? Its not just them but the Roman too seem to have technologically stagnated for the most part. The water wheel was invented during Roman times but didn't see wide spread use until feudal times. Far from being a “dark age” feudalism advance science and technology more than the Romans or the Greeks. When it comes to do the Chinese I don't understand their development at all either. They invented gunpowder first yet Europe is responsible for most of the development of the modern firearm. They had the people, the resources, and had been exposed tech information from the Middle East/Europe yet were one of the slowest nations to modernize. The Ottomans and leaders like Peter the Great pushed for modernization yet there seemed to be no successful major movement from above for it in China. I don't know how the Japanese were able overtake China tech wise so easily.
