I would like to read some philosophy that isn't dull and without an excess of brilliant connections and motifs

I would like to read some philosophy that isn't dull and without an excess of brilliant connections and motifs

Please recommend me a single work that is not written by a monkey obsessed with categorization. Also please no underlying self-help persuasions

Anything with some air drifting through the pages

Thank you

    Just don't read analytic philosophy and you won't have an issue

      So would you be helpful and provide an example?

      I don't think you'll like any philosophy really. Novels, films, paintings, statuary, poetry—those presentations of philosophy are for people like you.

      I don't think your philosophers would be happy that you've put me in such a tight box after such a short amount of time. Maybe some of the more stingy ones would however.

      But this is not a matter of liking or disliking. I'm asking for what I'm asking for and you try to lead me in another direction? Shame for generations

      Well nietzsche ofc, read beyond good and evil.
      And try reading Deleuze‘s Nietzsche and Philosophy, it’s really fun.

      Read most of N's work. Looking for others

        Why should I care what makes them happy? Philosophy isn't about feelings. If they disagree with me, we'll engage in debate to settle it. Do you get it now, kid? You aren't suited for it. Why on earth should everyone be suited for anything, after all? You're asking for another direction, and I'm telling you there aren't any.

          This is a little too autistic to be serious

          Hoping your joking

          If you aren't. I would lay off the philosophy a little bit. This might sound snide, but I'm genuinely concerned and quite serious

            You aren't meant for philosophy. It's okay. Read literary fiction or play jazz trombone or something instead.

            There is no need to be so vile

            If the philosophical type shares your traits, I am happy to keep my distance

            Thanks for proving me right. If you had even an ounce of philosophical talent in you, you would have a counter argument. I could easily argue against myself, so I know it is possible without much effort. Instead, I get this very womanly passive-aggressive ad hominem, drenched in false pity, which is to say, attempting to project unpossessed virtues. Like I said, get at philosophy through the Arts. It is the only chance you have.

            You assume too much

            I only asked to read some philosophy

            That doesn't lead directly to the conclusion that I would philosophize because of it

            I notice also that you softened the blow by calling it false pity. It is, unfortunately, the real deal

            I have one pointer for you in the future which is not to show your own emotional standing too quickly, or at all, during an argument which you involve yourself in as the rebuttler.

            Sure it has the impact of creating a pathetic connection by means of embarrassment avoidance etc etc.. but it does not foster the end result of all philosophies, which is the ease of truth.

            This you can argue against all you want, but you would be wrong. And even if you were to find yourself right, it would be ultimately a loss. Which is not a loss in the social competition sense, but a loss of your own comfort in this life, which I assure you is not only possible, but filled with delight.

            We can continue this if you want, but I'm going to need to go to the shop for some protein to counteract these chewy sweeties I have been sucking on

            Disregard any typos made above. didn't proofread

            I assume nothing. I infer everything. Didn't read. Don't care. I'm right.

      This doesn't imply that all philosophy is dull

      Are you saying that there is no dull philosophy? That would be a strange opinion

      What about reading Byung Chul-Han? There was a thread on here a while back and it seemed most anons like you liked what he has written.
      I have read a few of his titles and they are easily digestible for most people. They mostly concern contemporary societal issues if you're into that. You could start with Saving Beauty or The Burnout Society. The latter also has a movie made by Han.

      I am not into contemporary societal issues

    His whole body of work is aphoristic in nature: a mixture of reactionary, nietschean and catholic influences.

    Read The Republic - this is the correct answer to all "what philosophy should I read?" questions. It's well written and it is who every other philosophers is fundamentally responding to.

    Then: Kierkegaard, Wittgenstein, and perhaps Nietzsche and Schopenhauer. Life is too short to read bad writers, and most philosophers are absolutely appalling writers.
