What is the most /fa/ philosophical doctrine and why is it nihilism?
It's only edgy if you're 15 and think morality and meaning not existing means it doesn't matter if you don't care about other people.
> "you're responsible and in control of everything in your life, it's the ultimate freedom" sort of way.
sounds like le grand meme libertarianism :) get on pol and live it up leddit nerd
>Depends on how you present it, if it's cynical nihilism yeah that's angsty dumb shit now matter how old you are. Nihilism is only cool if you embrace it in the "you're responsible and in control of everything in your life, it's the ultimate freedom" sort of way.
thats not what that means, thats not what any of that means
martin heidgger is the more extremist perspective of nietzsche's work..
should all be in youy library if you even want to discuss philosophy even in the most basic terms
the average joe on the street would have read these
Eh, well most of my understanding of it comes from the Radiolab episode concerning it. My understanding is that it was mostly just the rejection of any metaphysical value. And the development of nihilism is in inevitability for society over time.
Or to be a nihilist is it required to be apathetic and cynical and to think that existence is useless and it would actually be better for everything to stop existing?
german idealism for pure philosophy but apply poststructuralist thought to a marxist version of politics and history
you better be confident and know what youre saying if youre going to namedrop deleuze or badiou, though
dont jump on oop/speculative realism, youll look trendy and like an arts mfa that isnt fully immersed in philosophical concepts
nietzsche is about as cool as the analytic philosophers. read medieval christian mystics or dialectical monists like nicholas of cusa
dont tell people youre reading the greeks/romans unless youre doing it in the original language
basically read things like e-flux and october to understand which theorists are 'cool' -- often the contemporary critical theorists whose names are big but not giant -- go for laclau, ranciere, the italian autonomists, not derrida or zizek
>apply poststructuralist thought to a marxist version of politics and history
Idk.if there's a name for this but I adhere to the philosophy that all man made religions and theologies are bullshit and that maybe there is some universal governing power out there, but we are way too small to fucking matter so just do you and don't give a shit. I mean seriously, morals and 'rights' and 'wrongs' don't mean anything - it's all just shit imposed on you by society
>the whole basis of existentialism is flawed as it states we have free will which isn't true.
>You're just a series of reactions to your enviroment. You're not choosing anything you're reacting.
it's like a fedora literally came to life and wrote this post
All your electrical impulses in your brain reacted to the situation a certain way due to your life experiences and evolutionary history causing you to reply to my post. No matter how many times the situation is replayed if the setup is exactly the same you'll make the same decision every single time.
Fuck off with your edgy self-contradicting shite
Absurdism alpha race coming through
How about some ancient philosophers who actually lived their philosophy? Like epicures? Nietzsche was pretty smart too, tho, but if you're trying to apply philosophy, try ancient greek philosophers they're not yet irrelavant and obsolete. Aristip was a little stupid tho
>my white upper middle class upbringing has exposed me to the horrors of live and has proven to me that it is meaningless
>Alphabet soup high school existentialism for dummies.
>Implying /b/ doesn't love Camus.
absurdism is for proles whose favorite books are the stranger and 1984. its for basic bitches just like H&M or uniqlo, acne or apc.
or even worse romantic existentialism ala murakami and wong kar wai. transgressive edgelords like pigfuck aren't any better either
