Unironically, whats the point of philosophy? To create endless amounts of abstract theoretical systems that refute each other? Whats the end goal here? Maybe I'm talking more about modern western philosophy since at least ancient philosophy systems like those from the pajeets and the greeks were they at least theorized about the workings of nature, God, the self and the spirit so it definitely had a higher purpose. Theres also thousands of thousands of literally who philosophers that each propose knew ideas about x thing, but for what? Once again, what is the end goal here?

I noticed that nothing in angry or demanding tone
Could goad him out of tranquility

Not even a searching gaze
And yet

I found him silly for wild strawberries and
A view to hailstorm from a steel building by an ancient tree.

He wasn't particularly musical
Nor can I remember his voice, a single

Thing he said except by way of inviting gesture
And susceptibility to impromptu racing where the road is clear

Wide and smooth as midnight boulevards
Free of spectators as if

Worlds were the oyster of beautiful but inarticulate men.

Each woman had a special personality that left a different Akashic Trace : an impression they left behind, a faintly glowing after-image, a tell-tale footprint in the snow, a rolling wave that crashed without a sound, an uncaptured etheric essence.

Bailey was a ray of heat from the sun. A pillar of fire astonishing explorers. A burning branch blinding the seekers of truth.

Meg was wild, boundless freedom, unrestrained like space, soaring like a bird of prey

Brit was a jet engine combustion catalyzed chemical reaction, all violence and distortion like fingernails scratching deep into flesh

Jesse was bubble gum pink, candy lollipops, fuzzy teddy bears and fluffy clouds

Claudia was a crystal clear diamond. She always hid her telescope eyes.

Sammie was a day of perfect sunshine, pure warmth and radiance. Twisted braids that intertwined and interlaced.

I view philosophy more as a process with the goal of learning how to think better. To use a weightlifting analogy. The goal is not to lift any particular weight (argument) but to get stronger (smarter). All the various arguments and theories of philosophy are just various brain puzzles to get you to practice on to learn how to think better.

A good philosopher is like a professional athlete of thinking. They don't really have much of a "use" . They hone their minds in the same way that athletes hone their bodies on contrived, impractical tasks.

This is also why it's important to learn how to *do* philosophy, not just to *study* it. The goal is not to simply research these various philosophical riddles, but to apply your own mind to cracking them or formulating them.

Sure, you can say it's futile to try to get it through their thick skull. But I'd much rather managed to get through 1 in 100 anons than none at all. I've lived my life seeing people not much different than anons here. Hopeless, miserable and done right right lazy too. But I've also seen others who've managed to change their lives for the better. They may not say it but I believe and want to believe that they change for the better.

If it's one thing I've seen time and time again is that people know what they need to do most of the time. All they need is a little nudge. The moment they're true to themselves, stop making excuses and lies to themselves they'll realize they're more capable than they seem. It can be tiring to explain again and again but I try not to get tired of it.

From an earlier thread
>My notion is that, a lot of times, what is expressive in words is the sound of the word rather than in the specific meaning of them... there's this shrink who has done all this work with autistic children... and he's found that the reason they don't speak isn't that they don't have the mechanism to speak, it's that their emotional equipment is fucked up and consequently they have no reason to speak because speech is first of all, not a code of meaning, not a way to communicate to others, it is purely a way to translate emotion into noise, and if you have no reason to express emotion as noise you have no reason to speak--that's what it is first of all.

It's like my mind got disconnected from my body and now I don't have to worry about reality anymore. Everything just feels like an illusion. I can finally rest a little bit. I don't even feel cold or pain now. And I can tell my ideas are a bit off, but at the same time I still feel like me. The one thing that worries me is that sometimes I get these sudden impulses to do violent things, to just trash everything. I just get so angry. But I stop those impulses before they reach my body.

Yes but not just that, change means acceptance to yourself. Your faults AND your strengths. People often see accepting oneself as seeing your negative.

Yeah it’s a shame. It’s not a niche book by any means but I remember starting a few Germinal threads a few years ago. One of them took off an hit 100+ posts or something. I think those threads need to stay alive to gather posts. They need tending to and bumps. It sucks I can’t make threads of writers I really like. I made a Dos Passos thread yesterday that obviously failed but one anon did say it looked interesting. A fact I’m coming to realize is that most of /lit/ that read has left. Sometimes it would take a few threads for more obscure books to succeed. I would love to discuss works by Nerval, Lawrence, Miller, Powys, Dos Passos, Kesey, Flann O’Brien, etc but I know it’s a waste of time.

It depends on the philosopher but generally it is the process of discovering nature of man and discovering ideals of society. An interesting figure in philosophy history is Marcus Aurelius. He was an emperor of Rome but a staunch Stoic which is curious because he could have chosen to be a complete tyrant. He was a man who had it all and ruled all of Europe at the time yet he never abused his position.

It might explain why someone like Jordan Peterson is popular although any glance at his work makes it clear the guy is refurnishing established works from previous philosophers. You'd be better off reading them too because it means you wouldn't have to listen to a whiny Canadian.

I don't know, it feels like I'd be letting someone get too close to me, putting myself in a too vulnerable position.

ok i have this story that happened to me recently that i have been waiting for a sympathetic mood to type up. ok, so i walk to work the same way every day. there's this chick who looks like flannery o'conners ugly sister who passed me every morning. it's late summer and hot as hell, so one day she's wearing a shorter dress than usual showing off her sexier than expected legs. i never acknowledged her existence before though i obviously noticed her every day, but for some reason that day i made eye contact. i guess it was just instinct or something. then the next day she was wearing pants! after wearing dresses every day. then the next monday she didn't pass by, but i saw her walking back after work the other way. then the next morning she was back but this time walking with a dude! she never walked with a dude before. then after that she never walked that way again. i bet she switched to the long way just to avoid passing me. lady, i just thought you were cute cuz you look like ugly flannery. what the hell. hopefully she just switched jobs or something, but all summer we passed no change, then i look into her eyes, and suddenly she's wearing pants and walking with dudes. i'm way to paranoid. someone who doesn't suffer from autistm wouldn't have even thought about it twice.

To my extreme rage, I discovered that my sister now had a boyfriend, and that she had lost her virginity. This one was a half White, half Mexican named Samuel, and I immediately took an intense disliking to him when I was first introduced to him. He seemed like the typical obnoxious slob that most young girls are sexually attracted to. Georgia invited him to my mother’s house all the time, and it angered me to watch him lurking about, eating my mother’s food and drinks, and making use of my mother’s house. He was freeloading off my mother, and she didn’t even realize it. I eventually grew to hate him after I heard him having sex with my sister. I arrived at the house one day, my mother being at work, and heard the sounds of Samuel plunging his penis into my sister’s vagina through her closed room door, along with my sister’s moans. I stood there and listened to it all. So my sister, who was four years younger than me, managed to lose her virginity before I did. It reminded me of how pathetic I was, that at the age of twenty-two, I was still a virgin. I hated her boyfriend as well. My sister said that he’s been with other girls before her, and I’m sure he lost his virginity at a much younger age. It is such an injustice. The slob doesn’t even have a car, and he is able to get girlfriends, while I drive a BMW and get no attention from any girls whatsoever. My sister even showed me a picture of one of his ex-girlfriends, a pretty brunette white girl. My hatred towards him only intensified after that. I refused to speak to him whenever he came over, and I constantly pestered my mother to ban him from the house, but she refused to heed my demands. Even worse, she constantly talked about him admiringly. He reminded me of Leo Bubenheim, a typical obnoxious boy who has been able to experience a great sex life from a young age. An enemy had now infiltrated the household of my mother, the one place in the whole world where I’ve always sought refuge from injustice. Things were getting too out of hand.

It's like once you get to where you want to be, it's not enough just to have it for yourself. You want someone else to share it with, too. Makes me think that I should start a family of my own, and maybe that would be fulfilling. That'd be starting a family for the wrong reason though, right? To satisfy my own selfish desire to feel content?

This week I was laid off from my job that I’ve been working at for just over five years. My boss, my boss’s boss, and the rest of our team were all laid off. Rather than being crushed or upset, I have felt a serenity that I have not felt in years—maybe ever. It’s like the weight of the world was lifted off my shoulders. It seems strange to me, really. I liked the people I worked with and I was good at what I was doing, but I just can’t find it in me to really care all that much. I hear people talk about how traumatic it is to get laid off, but I don’t feel that. I genuinely feel like this is the opportunity of a lifetime.

A warning to the ereader audience:

I switched over to eInk ereaders about 8 years ago because of the portability and "free" books. Fast forward to about a year ago and decided to switch back to physical copies. Tried to switch back to my ereader and - holy shit - it is much worse. My reading comprehension suffered tremendously - I can't really explain it. I felt I had to re-read lines far more often and my eyes were more irritable after a very short time.

In mankind's labyrinth, in the mist of nihilism, I hold one single ethical imperative to be self-evident and absolutely intuitive: knowledge is good for man. Man should seek true knowledge as far as is possible. Any action not subordinate to this imperative is equivalent to a beast playing around in mud, or to a man trying to hit a moving target blindfolded, instead of removing the blindfold: it is irrationality.
I deem this imperative to be reason, and man's sole guiding light. It is a valid, irrefutable response to ethical nihilism.

> “a student must eventually surpass his teacher”.

That's interesting because that's exactly how i see Nietzsche's work, and even more. Only to put it in a more crude way, Nietzsche is an encompassment of teenage spirit, in his work, conclusions, outlook, type of writing, ideas and probably in reference to general history of thought in general, he is at the point of a teenage development of our collective thought as a whole.

Refusal or very contrarian way he chose to walk. It's very negative too, he, in many eyes became: Nietzsche, the nihilist guy. Very utilitarian and reductionist.

Nietzsche became a spokesman for those fragile who wish to be strong like others and strong others who wish to be affirmed in their decisions, acknowledging both sides, yet clearly defining and giving priority to a dominant one, seeing it at the end as ultimate goal.

But the part about surpassing.. I have this thought about his "death", and please anons give me your takes on this. As it's common knowledge, at the end of his days Nietzsche went mental. As the story goes he jumped on the horses in a desperate attempt to "save it" or at least protect it from the guy who was beating it.

Now yes, it is a very based move from the based guy himself, but what is the meaning of it? Cocks here, with the same excitement that they adopted his ideas would proclaim he went full I'll shizo. But what is shizo then? Isn't it just a mode of behavior that is unaccepted as the norm, and norm being our small set of very precise functions?. Even in definition, the emphasis put on "clarity" as though actions of such a person are mysterious. So indeed they are, but aren't we here to solve those?

Again on surpassing. Would it be correct to assume that this Nietzsche guy, out of nowhere decided to re-establish personal psychology and philosophy, did it, and said - ok, I'm done here, time to reap the benefits. Well it would if you would forget what a true thinker does: he thinks, even if seemingly all has been thought. Besides, as previously mentioned, not only in essence, but in body Nietzsche was a teenager, eager to prove and push boundaries, ..sometimes irrationally if needed.

It will be my guess, since we can only speculate, but also from personal experience, that the absurdity of existence that had been discovered hasn't haltered Nietzsche in his quest of discovering a better world. Again, to clarify, yes, what Nietzsche had discovered is anything but a better world, in fact quite the opposite, a crude and cold one, we're literal violence on every level of being, as a conquest itself, is glorified to the highest good. Yet there is still this idea of peace and goodness. We all know deep down inside that it's an illusion and there is every reason to believe it to be so, yet when we experience it, this goodness, it feels very much real. This peace and calm of the soul when you are in a moment, absent of any biologically induced fears, a perfect fantasy.
