Sad philosophy is alright, i was just feeling like shit so i don't remember any Heidegger... And that makes me incredibly sad, especially now that I'm still having a hard time studying.

Mates i honestly don't know what to do, I'm so burned out and i feel like I'm wasting my uni education being depressed and not being able to live up to my own expectations, procrastinating, hating myself, feel like shit, avoid reading because it reminds me of all the bad feelings and then watching the most mindless youtube videos i can find like drean smp shit just to drain out my brain and feel less shit: but it makes me feel even more shit and get even more behind with my readings and right now i just need to tell someone that i feel like this so i put it here sorry.

>That's the actual fucking basis of his entire philosophy is mans perception of sense time and considering he was a member of the nazi party,
You’re confused, rooting time in Dasein safeguards it from manipulation and techno-science. Rosa’s thesis confirms Heidegger in that some conditions are unlivable because they uproot Dasein and produce unending presence and serve to abolish all distance. It’s pretty cheap that you think he’s ”bad” just because he initially supported the Nazis.

Heidegger project was dismantling the vulgar conception of time so that history, memory, expectation - our experience of time as Dasein - took precedence over purely abstract and scientific models. He’s also the complete opposite of any kind of ”objectifying” tendency, Heidegger even invented that invocation by accusing the Western metaphysical tradition of privileging presence and falling into simple schemas consisting of subject-object

>With us, moreover, people combine an interest in public and private matters, and those who are more involved in business are still well enough aware of political issues. In fact we alone regard the person who fails to participate in public affairs not just as harmless but as positively useless; and we are all personally involved either in actual political decisions or in deliberation about them, in the belief that it is not words which thwart effective action but rather the failure to inform action with discussion in advance. Indeed, in this too we are distinguished from others. We bring to our ventures a very high degree of both daring and analysis, whereas for others their boldness comes from ignorance and analysis means paralysis. The bravest spirits are rightly judged to be those who see clearly just what perils and pleasures await them but do not on that account flinch from the danger.

build up an audience for it. Release chapters for free and ask for donations from people who enjoyed it.

I am currently working on a story written in 1st person. The main character/narrator is meant to come across as unknowingly stupid and the tone of the novel is humorous. Basically an out of touch moron who doesn't realize he's out of touch and stupid. Any tips on writing a narrator who's stupid? I can't really use "big fancy words" since the narrator wouldn't talk that way.

I liked it, especially once I got used to the odd syntax, but I must agree that the Tristram and Isolde sections are loathsomely boring – I barely finished them. The first third of volume 2 is deathly boring. It does pick up afterwards, and the Holy Grail section is a blast after Tristram fucking around and the downfall of Arthur is just amazing.
>Yet some men say in many parts of England that King Arthur is not dead, but had by the will of Our Lord Jesu into another place; and men say that he shall come again, and he shall win the holy cross. I will not say that it shall be so, but rather I will say, here in this world he changed his life. But many men say that there is written upon his tomb this verse: HIC IACET ARTHURUS, REX QUONDAM REXQUE FUTURUS.

>>18706334
In sum, I agree with >>18707400 1) I fun, and pretty good. 2) is all right (END OF VOLUME ONE). 3) horrid and long; you'd be better off reading Shakespeare's version of Tristram and Isoud, or any other version; Malory's is probably the worst extant version. 4) is good. 5) is great.
There are better poems of the individual sections—which he used as sources—but Malory's Morte d'Arthur comprises all of the important elements of the Matter of Britain in English.

>>18707670
I liked the use of stock phrases; for me it recalled something of epic poetry and the use of stock phrases therein. The individual stories—with the exception of Tristram's—are well told, and it is handy that they all appear sequentially in a single book.
>And then they put afore them their spears, and Sir Launcelot came so fiercely upon him that he smote him and his horse down to the earth, that he had nigh broken his neck. Then Sir Launcelot took the knight’s horse that was his own afore-hand, and descended from the horse he sat upon, and mounted upon his own horse, and tied the knight’s own horse to a tree, that he might find that horse when that he was arisen.

It's known for being the first English language compilation of all of the Arthurian tales. The quality of the tales varies, but personally I'd recommend it as long as you know what you're getting into.

The Tristram section is overly long and repetitive, but it is worth it for the Palomides autism.

I'd recommend reading this, coupled with williams' 'outlines of romantic theology' if you want a good introduction to the arthurian corpus (although you'd probably want to start with the mabinogion and chretien de troyes) mixed in with a little bit of their theological applications. Plus williams is great, although I'd recommend starting with his fiction first.
