Take your totalitarianism to /pol/.

this is not literature
>>
>>7314671

There is no such thing as literature.
>>
>>7314626
Just read Critique of Pure Reason
>>
>>7314671
Critique and "what is art" opinions belong on /ic/.
>>
>>7314650
A large portion of literature is philosophy, numbnuts.
>>
>>7314691
well memed

works incorporating philosophical themes can be discussed for their literary merit sensu stricto. any discussion of any underlying philosophies belongs on /his/

Don't bother

There are better Philosophers out there

I have Kant, Hegel, Heidegger and Wittgenstein on my shelf. Should I read them chronologically? I'm happy to skip some of them if they have been surpassed.

>>7314626
This is kinda hard OP.
your best bet is to go to the standford wiki and try to get as much as you can
the (mad)man wrote a lot about many things (espitemology, ethics, aesthetics, etc...), and that's why he is both complex and rich in content, so trying to make a concise compilation is kind of hard since you are very suceptible to fuck things up on some point.

try to check as many youtube videos or introductory classes about Kant as you can, and when you feel you 'get' some ideas, go read the Critique of Pure Reason and then the Critique of Practical Reason. These 2 are his biggest and most imporant works.

If you understand these two, the rest of his works should be very easy for you.

what about something that talks about the motive of an action? I'm interested in looking up to what extent the morality of an action depends on the motive of the agent performing it
>>
>>>/his/

It's really childish to continue to post this stuff here when there's a new board for it.
>>
>>7314820
Philosophy is /lit/.
>>
>>7314812
Then read the Critique of Practical Reason
the whole system behind the Imperative Categorical is too complex to be read without understanding Kant's Deontological ethics as a whole.

As a helper, he would say that the motivation is not as important as the act itself, he centers his focus on the act, not what's before of after.

no it isn't

>>7314911
someone said Kant is a wizard, can I safetly read him?
>>
>>7314948
Yes, you can read him and be safe.
He does some intellectual black magick right in front of your eyes sometimes, but if you think hard enough about it, it should make sense, eventually.
>>
>>7314713
You don't skip shit fuccboy
You get inspired by the work of them and notice how the same ideal keep coming back into philosophy.
There's a (thin) link between people like Aristotle and Wittgenstein

Great philosophers don't really ever get surpassed

>>7314626

The Critique of Pure Reason is just what you're looking for.
