Hey, I've seen this thread before a bunch of times, but upon searching it in the catalog I couldn't find anything.

The site is filled up with amazing PDF's that I really want to read, but because I've spent most of my life coasting on general knowledge and cramming, I have no study habits to speak of. I really want to be able to write theory, but to do so I'm going to need a lot more books under my belt.

Additionally I spent a lot of my life playing lots and lots of video games and browsing lots of social media so as a result my attention span is completely fucked. I want to get back to the attention span I had when I was a kid. When I felt like I could stop playing video games whenever I wanted when I felt like reading books were just ss interesting as everything else i wanted to do.

Largely kicked my addiction to video games but I've just supplanted it with social media. The problem seems to be that I need to use my computer and my phone but the distraction and seduction of fast food media is often too great.

>If you have friends who put up with your bullshit you can give a mini-lecture about it to them too, it helps in the same way.
That's why I often end up talking to myself, as though I'm giving a live presentation, when doing chores and stuff.



Nice posts. How do you deal with after-work fatigue?


since making this thread i have read atomoc habits and can absolutely confirm that it is extremely good


>The most important thing to know about learning is that the best way to learn is by recalling. Therefore, by far the most effective study method, even though it is hard as fuck, is to practice recalling thing.

i like to recall things by just talking to people about it.


Chill out dude xe's just trying to help.

Op, I recommend pomodoro timer for studying. Also, make marginalia notes in your books.


Post video recordings of lectures and announcements for online lectures.

Hello brothers.
Id like some recomendations of philosophy Books by famous Communist philosophers. Please do not give me people of this century. And please let the communist author be russian. I want to read Communist soviet philosophy books but im not sure where to start. The books CAN be about any topic though i would prefer if it is about communist values and deep shit.

I could not find somethign like that in the generell book thread here.
thank you!



First choice for Russian philosophers would be Lenin and Plekhanov, but if you meant after them I'd recommend Adoratsky, Spirkin and Ilyenkov. If you want a basic thing, Vladimir Adoratsky wrote a really cool brief introduction to materialism.
Spirkin wrote a bigger textbook on philosophy but it was also intended for beginners.
Ilyenkov's summary on the history of dialectics

Also don't forget Lenin's Materialism and Empirio-Criticism was a philosophy must-read in the USSR



>What is Democratic Centralism? This philosophy, formulated by Marx, Engels, and Lenin, allows groups to make decisions collectively - giving everyone a voice while maintaining harmony and unity in thought and action.

>Today, in part 1, we will learn what Democratic Centralism means and why we should apply it in our real life organizing.

Or possibly they're looking for autonomism


i are many smarts


thats ok, anon, you don't need to contribute to be worthy of love
/b/ is where you'll find the discourse you want
idk if this is sarcastic or not, but it's not at all an easy answer. One thing that's really annoying with socialist revolutionaries (like lenin e.g.) is how much they talked as if revolution was itself the goal and highest value to be achieved. It's one thing to laugh off philosophical charlatans pretending to be all objective, and assert your goals which align with your class, but when you need to rest on absolutely solid ground it's not good enough to leave open room for nihilist and pragmatist critiques, and force skepticism out of its safe spot before the crossroads of idealism or materialism.
it's not about technical professionals having final political say (out of the scope of their work - though obviously i'm not discounting the socialist tradition of critiquing professional cretinism and the need for people under socialism to be more broadly educated and all disciplines of science to be brought into communication and agreement) or AI rule or anything. Idk maybe ur right tho i don't know much about technocracy
i think that's smth totally unrelated

Male spouses under the age of 35 and female spouses under 25 originating from the Palestinian territories are prohibited from obtaining citizenship and residency.[71] The 2003 Citizenship and Entry into Israel Law effectively discouraged further marriages between Israeli citizens and Palestinians by preventing couples in these circumstances from cohabitation.[72] Although challenged as unconstitutional, this restriction was upheld by the Supreme Court in 2006[73] and 2012 and continued to be effective until the law’s expiration in July 2021.[74][75] These restrictions were reimplemented in law with no expiration time in March 2022.[76]

Jewish residents of former Mandatory Palestine at the time of Israel’s establishment were granted Israeli citizenship on the basis of return, but non-Jewish Palestinians were subject to strict residency requirements for claiming that status. Non-Jewish residents in Israel could acquire citizenship on the basis of their residence in 1952 if they were nationals of the British mandate before 1948, had registered as Israeli residents since February 1949 and remained registered, and had not left the country before claiming citizenship.[26]


These requirements were intended to systemically exclude Arabs from participation in the new state. The UNRWA estimated that 720,000 Palestinian Arabs were displaced during the 1948 Arab–Israeli War,[27] with only 170,000 remaining in Israel following its establishment. Until the Citizenship Law was enacted in 1952, all of these individuals were stateless. About 90 percent of the remaining Arab population were barred from Israeli citizenship under the residence requirements and held no nationality.[28]

Thread for tracing and studying the origins and history of anti-communist propaganda. One of the earliest anticommunist myths I've found is that back in the 1870s right wingers were declaring that the Paris Commune was the work of foreign agents/provocateurs from The International and money from London, and that Marx and co were accused of being sort of masterminds financing dissent and chaos throughout Europe.
Marx talks about it here: https://www.marxists.org/archive/marx/bio/media/marx/71_07_18.htm
And Engels' words on it:
>You know that the millions of the International do not exist except in the terrified imagination of the bourgeoisie and of the governments, which cannot understand how an association like ours has been able to win such a great position without having millions at its disposal. If they had only seen the accounts submitted at the last Conference! (MECW Vol 44)

I'll be adding what I know in later posts


This thread has some lulzy stuff from the 1950s-60s.

Did the ancient/medieval Ethiopians domesticate the African elephant? In many historical records, the Abyssinians/Aksumites are mentioned to use elephants for military purposes, but were these African elephants or Asian elephants? In modern-day Ethiopia, or in fact anywhere for that matter, there is no sign of domestication of the African elephant. However, African elephants have been extensively used in ancient times for military purposes, for example by the Carthaginians.

Extinct species likely… if they domesticated the species their use likely lead to the subspecies being extinct if it was relegated to that given area


>Did the ancient/medieval Ethiopians domesticate the African elephant?
No, elephants are to long lived for that to be possible, it takes 20-25 years for an elephant to grow up.

Is there a website where I can learn philosophy? A website that leads your through and explains to you all larger categories and questions in philosophy? I know there is plato.stanford.edu, but it's an encyclopedia and doesn't lead you through the topics in a didactic manner. I didn't want to learn philosophy by reading a bunch of books, because I have several dozens of books I'm already intending to read.

I'd like to get into epistemology. Which thinkers and what literature do you recommend for that?



Cool, I‘m reading it. What I noticed first is how confused I was at what exactly the confusion or contradiction was about. Sure rationalism as opposed to empiricism but where is the issue? Until I read

>Meanwhile, in Revolutionary England, the Royalist Thomas Hobbes continues the evolution of empiricism by a consideration of how the action of matter on the sense organs generates thought in the mind

So that was an epiphany at that time. It would be nice to have a complete understanding of what exactly people at a time believed/knew or didn‘t know. I didn‘t get the confusion or dispute at first.


Manuel DeLanda
You can watch a lot of his lectures on youtube.


Great read. Anything else?
