it does not really matter much it is an enjoyable but short and inconsequential read, you should just skip the fan-fiction and read actual Buddhist/Daoist/Hindu/etc primary texts if you are interested in eastern philosophy/religion
>>

Don't skip it. It's a good read. Any new translation is good. I read Rika Lesser's most recently and it was good.

>he thought siddhartha was about buddhism/daoism/hinduism

pleb detected

>>7578672

1. I didn't say that
2. Its obviously about eastern philo/religion

>plebbing this hard
>guaranteed hasnt read any hesse besides siddhartha, and didn't even understand siddhartha

maybe /reddit/ is more your speed

>>7578731

>anyone who disagrees with me should go to reddit!

Its literally a novel about someone who pursues enlightenment and inner peace through following different practices found in eastern religion until they just follow their own. There are references to eastern religion or philosophy on every single page.

If you have your own personal interpretation of what he was "really" trying to say then whatever but you can't fucking say the book wasn't about eastern philosophy/religion. Hesse isn't even that great of an author but you don't even need to have read anything else by him to get what Siddhartha is about.
>>
>>7578731
Hesse is undergrad-tier. Get over yourself.

Well then if think Siddhartha isn't about eastern philosophy/religion then why don't you explain what you think its about and provide evidence that supports your interpretation then.
>>
>>7579097
Yeah, as someone who read Siddartha when they were like 13, I am interested in what you think it was about. Might invoke a reread.

>he used a meme generator to generate a reddit meme to win an argument on a mongolian throat singing forum

Man I haven't even read Siddhartha and I know you're probably the pleb here in this shit flinging fest
>>
>>7579122
What a plebeian understanding of our glorious board culture.
>>
>>7575861

None. It's a book for teenagers to skim through so they get to feel enlightened.

Also, it's like Bambi, but with humans.

actually I just saw it posted earlier and saved it

the point still stands, if he is just going to complain without explaining what he thinks the book is about and why then thats pretty lame, at least I explained why I thought it was about what I thought it was about here >>7579005

If you try to maintain that Siddhartha is not about eastern philosophy but then fail to explain why you're correct its reveals you to be the pleb here anon.
>>
>>7579154
>>7579195
This is unironically correct.
>>
>>7575861
I read it in German when I was 13, really liked it, but could anybody tell me how the subject of this isn't eastern religion and individualistic religion?
