Postmodernism is eroding humanity. The real red pill is understanding that no matter how hard you try, in this life you can never be 100% sure where you lie on the based/cuck spectrum.

Imagine thinking these specific books weren't picked out by a producer and placed there prior to this interview for the sole purpose of this inevitable conversation.

At what point does someone become a philosopher? Is it just a matter of enough people deciding to call them one? Are we all technically philosophers? Do you need to be published first? Can you just decide to call yourself one?

Remember how throughout all the bible Jesus condemned lawyers all the time for constantly stirring shit? well if he was preaching today journalists would be enemy number 1. their entire business model is based around getting us to all hate each other. Journalists are literally the scum of the earth. They don't care about you or me they live only for clicks. Imagine having a format when you could get literally thousands of (you)'s a day, well that's what they do.

I’m not a successful person, and haven’t been in 23 years of living so far. I haven’t succeeded in school, in sports, in work, in social and sexual relationships, in money or in my aspirations. There are probably many reasons why, from nature to nurture and everything in between, though none of them have been from want of trying. The only things that give me hope are that I can admit this to myself, and that tomorrow, I will try again.

OP here, decides I'm NOT going to buy them. Lots of good arguments in this thread as to why or why not you should own these.
Someone posted for $400 the complete set and the fact is I could use that to buy better copies of the texts I actually want. I own a number of the texts that are included in the set so buying them would be redundant and unnecessary.

But really, the argument for secondary literature is what really got me thinking. These books are so vastly different in some cases and hardly can be called a "set". There only connection being that they shaped Western culture and order chronologically? Why do they need to be read in that order? Why do I need to read a mix of literature and philosophy without the need for secondary literature.

>"esoteric philosophy"
read Rene Guenon (pbuh) my brother and like a sun appearing over the crest of a mountain peak his inspiring writing will illuminate for you the true meaning of concepts like 'esoterism' 'initiation' 'philosophy' and 'metaphysics'. I suggest beginning with his first book which can be read online as a PDF here alone with this other books.

I've been working on a novel about a Doomer type guy who lives alone and spends his time immersed in the internet trying to soak in as much esoteric / forbidden knowledge as possible. I want to write something that evokes that feeling of watching gore videos at 4AM. He buys a gun. Some more stuff happens. Mexican cartel maybe gets involved.

I'm lazy though so it probably will be a year before I finish the second draft.

Someday you all will realize self-aware, post-ironic kitsch is the ultimate evolutionary precipitate of the entire western literary tradition.

Why does this board always reduce the entire analytic tradition to a kind of logical positivism? Even Wittgenstein, usually the poster child for the common stereotype of the autistic analytic STEMfag was predominantly mystically minded in regards to ultimate truths. Just because the analytic tradition doesn't directly talk about or describe all of the schizo stuff continentals do, doesn't mean its absence is not a fascinating and integral part to analytic thought.

>tfw you've read, empathized, argued for, and mastered every single political ideology that exists and have ascended all of them and now see how most people are just emotionally invested brainlets botching what they're trying to advocate.
None of you are ready.
