>>7628334 tell me more anon, i've been planning to read meditations but only after reading aristotle, now i have to say i took a break from that because it was getting too dry for me and i'm reading various things at the moment.
>>7628341 You took a break from Aristotle or MA ? Because I think MA is very agreeable to read. I was referencing Meditations 3-2, but the whole book is very interesting and I consider it one of the bests (if not the best) introductions to philosophy, as it is both easy and rich. The prose is agreeable and inspiring, and MA himself is someone to look up to.
>>7628347 I was referring to Aristotle obviously. I guess i got to a point where i'm tired of reading about "what morality is" and "what it means to be virtuous" rather i'd prefer reading about advices on life and practical things.
>>7628354 Are you reading Nicomacean ethics ? Because I understand that it is a very tedious read, but it is also full of practical advices (that are well dissimulated behind very disagreeable but clear and methodic writing) such as having friends, or being in a constant middle ground ...
>“Waste no more time arguing about what a good man should be. Be one.”
If you wish for a book that shakes the dirt, this is it
>>7628370 What a nice quote by MA, you're right i'm reading the ethics right now, and besides what you said the other thing i got out of it is that the best life to live or to achieve eudaimonia is to live a contemplative life, virtue being secondary.
>>7628684 Yep it helped me a lot, altough I picked it just for curiosity and ended up getting "lucky". I just kinda forgot about it and as it's in my tablet and I don't use it often I never had it on my floor reminding me to read it. (I throw work papers and books in the floor so I remember them)
/lit/ I want to be a stoic and live a good life, I am trying, but I feel I am getting pushed around quite hardly, it feels like most of the good I do to other people is never returned thus making me unhappy. I need help.
