1. And... we're back. You'll notice that all of your images are back as well, as are our beloved emoticons, including the infamous :foo: We have also worked with our server folks and developers to fix the issues that were slowing down the site.

    There is still work to be done - the images in existing sigs are not yet linked, for example, and we are working on a way to get the images to load faster - which will improve the performance of the site, especially on the pages with a ton of images, and we will continue to work diligently on that and keep you updated.

    Cheers,

    Fok on behalf of the entire Styleforum team

    If you think the Big H is long-winded, you should try Sloterdijk...

    I think he meant that Nietzsche, unlike say Kant or Heidegger, cares very much about style in the literary sense and has a great deal of it.

    fwiw: on truth and lies in a non-moral sense for something that sings. anything Heidegger if you want thoughts as far away from komisch as possible. Stanislaw Lem for another quality sci fi author.

    Someone suggest me a good book collection filled with modern art and essays. Was just looking at Marcel Duchamp paintings and I really want just, like, a book filled with that shit. But with many artists.

    I dont think Heidegger is the worst offender at all. It seems that most who have followed in the Cartesian tradition (including many who supposedly refute it) have to mangle the English language (or French or German) to complete their version of the puzzle which is a "full" account of the nature of the universe or of knowledge (their own "tower"). I find Neitzsche refreshing because, he makes no claim to offering a complete system and he uses language that, while less rigorous, seems to make points with more impact, spontanaiety, and humor.

    i think question concerning technology is probably heidegger's most digestible work. age of the world picture is also a really good read. i mean, obviously he has his magnum opus but in all honestly, unless you're a grad student of some sort (and even if then), it's not really worth it (and same goes for hegel)

    e.g. https://pervegalit.wordpress.com/2012/06/09/how-to-fake-your-way-through-hegel/
