    Emily Post's Etiquette(2019)

    I'm preparing to re-enter society as a NEET of 3 years; and am learning how to small talk and enact semi-traditional maneuvers for the current age.

      Which translation of Tao Te Ching?

      • 5 months ago

        This one was by Hinton. I recently got his book of translations that has the Tao Te Ching, Confucius, Chuang Tzu, and Mencius. I liked this version but Lau is still probably my favorite. Hinton is good though IMO and he has some great translations of the Classical Chinese poets. I feel that reading as many versions of TTC is best. It’s a very obscure type of book so layering translations has been effective for me. Only one I didn’t like was Ryden. Mitchell was okay. I want to get the Addriss/Lombardo soon

    >Plato's Theaetetus
    Really good. I went into it thinking it's going to be a little nonsensical because I don't like the idea of knowledge as a justified true belief, but I'm really enjoying it.
    >Kuhn's Structure of Scientific Revolutions
    Hit and miss, I don't know that I'm the biggest fan of his writing style and so far most of these ideas don't seem that new, or like I've been exposed to them already. Chapter 4 was great though; it really lays into scientists.
    >The Monkey Wrench Gang
    Started good but seems a bit samey. I feel like I'm waiting for the plot to go somewhere, or for deeper character development but I'm not getting much.

    Moby Dick and the Divine Comedy
    Both are fun but the latter has typos and I am annoyed.

      I just got a copy of the divine comedy. I've been vaguely interested in it for a while so I'm excited to finally read it.

    CG Jung Collected Works III - Psychogenesis of the mentally Ill
    I'm using it as a jumping board from Freud to get into Jung, and you can really see some of the differences that would later make them split ways.
    The most memorable part so far has been a schizo guy dreaming of some figure handing him an ancient bronze sword. While the typical Freudian response was that it simply meant Papa und Penis, Jung agreed to that based on the patients history, but also took it as the call to something greater, that the patient had gathered his will to fight the illness. That indeed was the beginning of a recovery process.

    Reading Plutarch’s life of Cato the Younger. That era of Rome sure had some characters gigantic in stature. Also dusted off the Dhammapada, and some poetry
