What if I wanted to read more or less "contemporary" philosophers like Sartre, Beauvoir, Adorno, Deleuze, Zizek, Badiou, etc.. but don't have the time and, dare I say, sufficient interest to go through Kant, Plato, Aristotle, and all the other classical authors of philosophy? How much do I have to lose? I'm willing to spend a couple of months reading Plato, but I think I'm only willing to go through secondary sources for Aristotle. Same goes for the philosophers that predated the "contemporary" ones mentioned above. I'd be willing to read a history and primer on German idealism and maybe even read primary enlightenment texts if I have to. So how much do I have to lose? People who are good at philosophy please answer.

>>1773 read ultra left phylosophy like guy debord , raoul vanegeim , György Lukács , Henry Lefbvre , the revue "international situationnist" , "theorie communiste" or "sic" it's better adorno is good
>>1773 and yes you can read them directly
>>1773 in fact you only need to read a lot of marx before
>>1773 I did pretty much exactly this. you can get away with it by reading pic related to get the framework of what the classical and ancient philosophers are all about. but for some of the people you listed, like Zizek and Badiou (can't speak on the others, but I've heard Deleuze is supposed to be pretty easy in isolation), you will have to additionally understand some mid 20th-century stuff like Lacan and Heidegger.
>>1778 t. theorylet without philosophy there is no Marx

3D modeling Comrade 05/20/2020 (Wed) 13:36:11 No. 1722 [Reply] [Last]
Anyone want to journey with me into 3D modeling? I was going to follow along with a blender youtube tutorial, and see where that leaves me at the end of it. Blender is free! https://youtu.be/TPrnSACiTJ4?list=PLjEaoINr3zgEq0u2MzVgAaHEBt--xLB6U Feel free to post others or talk about modeling in general.

Can anyone explain to me what Georges Sorel was about? I don't have means to get any of his books in where I live and I don't have much information about him other than Wikipedia.
>>1735 Can you not, look online? The only things I know about him was that he was a big theorist in the pre WWI Syndicalist movements and believed in like Voluntary Marxism but later a Nationalist of sorts and a supporter of the Bolsheviks. He was an odd fellow who inspired people from Lenin, Gramsci to Hitler and Evola. Again I'm sure you could find his writings online.
Sorel is usually seen as a heterodox thinker because he has been influential in radical movements which are politically very desperate. This seems strange to a lot of people, but once you study his work it starts to seem perfectly natural. He has a whole thing about the importance of myth and the warrior ethos. Similar to what Plato advocated in the Republic in some regards. I think his most influential point though is the one which kinda pops the "oh so mysterious" bubble around him. He wrote a pretty solid and widely read defense of political violence called "Reflections on Violence". Naturally, any movement seeking to justify street violence will point to this, since it has name recognition and is only vaguely tied to any one political alignment. I have attached a pdf of the aforementioned book. Unless you live somewhere with limited internet such that you can't access Russian servers though you definitely have access to Sorel's work (as well as most other books in general). Library Genesis is your friend.

Any good books on the events of May '68? Hopefully from a modern day perspective. Documentaries are also welcomed. I was looking into The Imaginary Revolution: Parisian Students and Workers in 1968 by Michael Seidman, but couldn't find any pdfs, so if you have one that you could share that'd be great.

MMt,Rate of Profit and Marxist economics Comrade 05/18/2020 (Mon) 15:05:31 No. 1683 [Reply] [Last]
Hello anons, as you could guess from the title of the thread my question is: Assuming Marx's LTRPF is true, in a moment in which low profitability gives birth to crisis can't the government (acting in an MMT framework) simply act to employ the unemployed with good wages thereby raising in this way demand for consumer goods and then the rate of profit via price increases? Or is there something am i missing?
>>1683 personnaly, I think that one big limitation to this may be natural ressources (or its lack of). I don't think marx thought of that, as states were at his time in history, not at the size (or economic power) they have now

>>1539 An apartment building with a subbasement should be good enough, and most 60s era buildings usually had an area that was designed to be used as a fallout shelter, and even though most public fallout shelters have been decommissioned and the supplies have expired and been thrown away and the room repurposed, the rooms or areas themselves are usually still there and their thick walls will protect you from radiation, you just have to bring your own supplies.
