@Polybius ayy, I started on that same list (the second one) and gradually built my own list, I'm basically doing the start with the greeks meme now. A lot of the books in the political section are books I'm just going to read a summary of, like the Calvin one and some of the gay enlightenment shit
@Callaghan I read The Sickness Unto Death and decided I want to read earlier philosophy first before I delve into Kierkegaard fully (apparently a lot of what he writes is indirectly responding to Hegel)
Not the most exciting but definitely good read
@Mephisto is it really required to slog through hegel for kiekegaard?
@Callaghan no but Kierkegaard is very big brained and I feel like an absolute brainlet reading it. I can follow most of it, but I want to get more familar with basic philosophical terminology first. Im going to read some of the greeks extensively then go for hume, leibniz, (((spinoza))), kant and hegel
@Mephisto there must be copies with annotations for brainlets right?
Probably, I just used penguin classics and the introduction helped a lot, if you dont understand the autistic terminology you won't be able to follow most of it
What are some good books on WW2
Gimme like 5 or so
Very good piece on cognitivism vs non cognitivism if anyone is interested in jurisprudence
on the same site?
Yup just search it
Should pin that tbh
other unifags probably already know about it but http://www.bartleby.com/ has a great collection of literature
Any good books on Jelqing?
@Mephisto I can send you over notes I took from a class on neitzsche, Hume, Aristotle, Epictetus and them. It covers all that terminology and it’s pretty concise
Read liberalism is a sin
Very good book by a very learned Spanish priest
has anyone read "The Dictator Pope: The Inside Story of the Francis Papacy"
@everyone Fellas at the book store right now. Has anyone read City of God or The Screwtape Letters? Wanted to get Mere Christianity but they don't have
False alarm I found Mere Christianity. Rate the stack lads.
I read The Screwtape Letters in middle school
@Bigfoot what did you think of it? I don't know anything about C.S. Lewis and very little about Christianity in general.
@Polybius It was a very interesting format for certain, as it is as the title suggests it’s a series of letters written between a young demon and his uncle. Asking advice for how to best corrupt and tempt the man he has been assigned to.
@Bigfoot#6897 🤔 sounds interesting. I'll probably pick it up next time I go it was only like four bucks anyway.
Gonna order "First Rate Madness" soon
It connects strong leaders to often having mental illnesses
Big fan of psychology and history
so this should be right up my alley
