I know nothing about intellectual discussion, this is just for people who don't want to hang in the shitpost thread and want to talk about smart things.
Officially a Mega Man addict.
Major thanks to Giga and Erik557 for the layout.

Is this some sort of reverse psychology?
Anyone wanna talk about existentialism?

I believe this is quite frankly a wonderful idea. It does indeed contrast the aforementioned "shitposting." Pardon me for my rather harsh language, but it is actually a term very frequently used on the world wide web and quite well-regarded as a term not very looked-down upon. Nevertheless, this is quite an excellent idea that I very well agree with. Astonishingly wonderful work you have performed here, my good man. Kudos to you!

Actually, shitposts can be quite clever.

Anyway, doing this kind of threads is kind of useless, unless you are doing this as some kind of joke since many people will come here to shitpost, making fun of the apparent objective of the thread.

What if we talk about determinism? Is it not much more relevant?

Everything can be hacked.

This doesn't really count as intellectual discussion, but, randomly, I've wanted to start reading Heidegger's Being and Time over the summer, but I've read through the first 20 or so pages and found it pretty tough to grasp on fully to his thoughts, although what I feel I've begun to understand has been really interesting and compelling. Would anyone that has read Being and Time or has some knowledge in philosophy recommend any reading material to 'build up' to Being and Time, along with possibly a few guides for the book itself.

Also, now that I've begun reading some of Samuel Beckett's work, the more I see the connection that people make between his prose and Morton Feldman's music. The way they both build up their material in seemingly completely intuitive ways, how they toy with us by introducing seemingly important points or phrases in their work, only to have them never appear again are the two main similarities I've spotted so far. I could even go farther to make connections, albeit somewhat superficial ones, to Mark Rothko, who was a close friend of Feldman's.

I haven't really gotten into existentialist philosophy yet, although Kierkegaard and Camus are both on my reading list. What would you recommend as good introductions to their work?

e: btw this is actually a serious post

Declined? Eh...I wouldn't say that....

I have plenty of books on those. The Malcolm Gladwell books, The Freakonomics series, Dan Ariely, but I just can't seem to make the time to read all of them. (They're even some of the shorter books). I always have thought-provoking Podcasts on my iPod though so I listen to those instead.

Oh yeah, because that truly matters.

E: Or maybe I should just say instead, this quality of posting is fairly trivial instead of being passive-agressive.
I love how everyone thinks anything that's not a shitpost has to be super deep/intellectual/philosophycal.

Personally its a shame existentialism is always confused with nihilism as the two schools of thought are actually very different and contrast each-other.
I'm not smart enough for this thread.
