In contemporary philosophy there are two major metaphilosophical standpoints: Naturalism and Quietism. Naturalism in this broad metaphilosophical sense holds that philosophical problems are real in the same way as problems in the natural sciences. The majority of contemporary philosophers could be described as Naturalists. Quietism, on the other hand, describes an outlook belonging to a much smaller group of people but one that is rapidly growing in size and popularity. Quietists hold that philosophical problems are pseudo-problems that arise out of linguistic and conceptual confusions. Thus the role of philosophy should be one of therapy, to dissolve – as opposed to solve – philosophical puzzlement and arrive at conceptual clarity. Philosophy should not offer any positive theses; it does not contribute to human knowledge, but human understanding. Quietists believe clarity to be a virtue and an end in itself. It borrows its name from a heretical Christian mysticism of the 17th century, but Philosophical Quietism has its roots in the work of the 20th century philosopher Ludwig Wittgenstein, particularly his late work Philosophical Investigations, and arose as a term out of a revived interest in his thought. Quietists decry the over-reverence of science and theory in the modern age, its fetishisation of ‘progress’ and ‘originality’, and its increasing marginalising of the arts. Wittgenstein is the father of Philosophical Quietism but it also often takes influence from Ordinary Language Philosophy, American Transcendentalism, Counter-Enlightenment and Romanticism, and Eastern philosophy.

Hey /lit/ Our critique threads get swarmed with posts, but rarely do any of them get a response, and if they do, its usually obnoxious/useless critique. Not only that, but I'm sure many writers also abandon the thread before they even see their replies. So, I wish to give a temporary solution to anybody who is lurking tonight. Post your shit here and in the morning I will go through every post and give it useful critique. Expect me to be brutally honest. I will point out what you're doing wrong and show you what you're doing right. This is a guarantee you will get useful critique within 24 hours of your post. Once I start giving critique, however, I will not accept new posts. I am not a poet, I enjoy poetic writing, but not poetry. So please, none of that shit. I will try to be in-depth, but I am not an editor/publisher, so keep that in mind and think of my critique as an outsider's view to your work. >inb4 someone posts a fucking 170k word manuscript.

If Napoleon didn't invade Russia, and decided to just chill out a bit, would it have been likely he could have maintained peace from that point onwards without conceding any of the land he had captured up until that point? Or would the rest of Europe have consolidated their forces and immediately turned on him a bit down the track?
