Any good books about healthy, wholesome adventures in fucking nature? Biographies of explorers, Egil's saga, stuff like that? I am honestly very very sick of people fighting their demons or being cynical and depressed. I just want to see people solve non-political problems presented by the external world.
Stuff like Growth of the Soil or All the Pretty Horses or hell The Story of San Michele. I know they are not about Adventures in Great Outdoors, but at least they are not edgemaster navelgazing everything is awful tier.
Hey /lit/, any advice??
I bought this used from Half Price last night and just discovered this.
The underlining in random places was bad enough but this is fucked.

Scruton, before attempting the endeavor himself, says there is no contemporary effort at sexual morality in philosophy. He says, for instance, that objecting to rape, is not really secular sexual morality, because it's just an extension of the morality against brutality.
Is he right? Is there no real endeavor toward secular sexual morality today?
Well, sex is cheap these days; I would say that modern morality surrounding sex falls into either the traditional "Abrahamic" attitudes in the decaying bastions of old societies (Evangelical, Islamic, Indian regions), or the emerging cosmopolitan morality, where the ideal is to transgress all norms.
I think that people in general don't make a very big deal about interpersonal relationships anymore, although I don't know about any intellectuals who think about this
Sure. I mean what is it you always hear? "Anything's ok as long as everyone consents." Well shit, if that's all then why is any sexual crime so bad? If sex is meaningless then forcing someone to have sex is no more meaningful than forcing your kid to eat his brussel sprouts.
You can't have your cake and eat it too.
Hey /lit/, can we discuss this book? In my opinion it's utter shit mainly because of how stupid and insufferable the protagonists are.

At his best, he's nearly unparalleled.
Is it possible to become a good writer in two years?
My knee-jerk response is "absolutely not."
My considered response is: "where is your starting point?"
My own writing only matured after about three years of drivel (started seriously at 17). Rimbaud, Pessoa, Dylan Thomas and other precocious writers started reading and writing much earlier, as children. And they are the exceptional cases, bear in mind.
What is some 21st Century essential fiction?
Rate Emma's taste, /lit/.
/lit/, what do I do when Undernet and IRCHighway fail to deliver? I've been trying to find pic related on Google and all I get are scams and viruses. I bought it already, but I live in another continent and it will take around a month to arrive. I want to start the Iliad now, how do I do it?
What are Lord Byron's ties to religion and science?
Okay /lit/, we did it! And much, much sooner than I expected.
I've submitted the book onto the website, which you visit here:
As for the price of the book, it'll be $15 AUD, which is $10.43 USD, £7.18 and €9.55.
I will not be taking any of the revenue from this book, it'll be donated to the charities of your choice.
So yeah, good job guys! I didn't think we'd actually get to the point of publishing this book!
Just admit it /lit/, you will never have an original thought and everything that you spout off about on here is just trite garbage vomited up through your keyboard, you, again, vomiting up, the giant amalgamation of books you've read which, I might add, all contradict each other in some way or another.
Nothing is original, all is pastiche,
nothing is new under the sun...
