Why is philosophy such a pain to read ? I'm a curious mind and I've read about anything from scientific books to ordinary novels, yet I can't bear philosophy books and it actually makes me cringe. I feel like I'm reading a purged version of a novel with only definition of a subjective point of view. However I really have difficulty understanding why I feel this way and how to correct my point of view.
I've been trying Antechrist from Nietzche, the Capitol from Marx and I remember reading Kant.
It feels like I'm just mindlessly reading a chain of ideas meaninglessly, and there's a sense of the work being incomplete as if I was just reading a skeleton. It also often seems pretentious and unilateral. I've also however read fictions from Platon and they felt like any ordinary novel.
what are some exhaustively depressing books? I want to have no will to live after reading these. I want to read something so depressing I just off myself afterward.
