Dystre filosofer

Jeg leser exphil, og jeg lar meg irritere. Platon snur opp ned på alt jeg trodde jeg visste om menneskelig dyd. Aristoteles mener at følelser og fornuft slett ikke er adskilt, men at følelser er integrert i menneskefornuften. Og sist, men ikke minst: Descartes tviler på alt, også selve eksistensen. Snakker om lystig lesning på en vakker vårdag.

Katten Brutus vet å nyte varmere dager, og jeg tror ikke at han tviler på sin egen eksistens (bildet er ikke fra i år).

(Jeg liker filosofi bedre når jeg «bare» leser det, ikke når jeg leser det for å forstå, analysere og så drøfte det i en mindre hyggelig eksamen)

    Jeg og et par andre medstudenter skrev oppgave om etikk i ex.phil, og brukte to uker på å finne ut hva Aristoteles sin dygdsetikk var for noe. Det ble et ganske kort avsnitt om det, i motsetning til pliktetikk og utilitarisme som var veldig mye enklere å forstå.

    Ikke fan av Aristoteles etter det..😦

    For min del går det i 1. og 2. Verdenskrig, depresjon, kald krig osv.. ikke akkurat lystig det heller. Men mer interessant enn ex.phil må jeg si.

    Spennende! Jeg holder på med So long Marianne nå, en biografisk fortelling om da en kvinne ved navn Marianne var sammen med Axel Jensen, og senere Leonard Cohen (to kjndiser, ikke verst!), så da blir det enda mer relevant å lese Epp. Jeg trodde kanskje den var tung og sær, men dette høres jo morsomt ut.

      Regner med at det var meningen at denne kommentaren skulle havne på posten om Epp🙂 Jeg også tenkte at det var store muligheter for at denne boka var tung og ugrei, men den er særdeles lett å komme igjennom. Jeg hørte på hele i ett strekk. Den er ikke spesielt lang, heller. Personen Epp har forøvrig litt Elling-preg over seg.🙂

The League of Regrettable Superheroes by Jon Morris is a fun look at superheroes who never made it into the big leagues. Some of them missed their chance simply because they just vanished in the crowd, but others were downright weird. Ever heard of Doll Man? Jigsaw? Fatman the Human Flying Saucer..? #bøker #books #bok #reading #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #litteratur #literature #bookporn #superhero #jonmorris #theleagueofregrettablesuperheroes #lootcrate #comics #comicbooks #tegneserie In celebration of being completely done with this year's Christmas shopping: here is an unrelated shelfie. I'm not actually giving away any books this year. I know. It's sad.

I've seen this book around for a while, and finally decided to pick it up - even though it seems to be slightly outside what I usually read. The Wrath & The Dawn by Renée Ahdieh. Have you read it? What did you think?

#newbook #thewrathandthedawn #reneeahdieh #books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #bookporn New book! Every Anxious Wave by Mo Daviau. It's being described as "High fidelity with time travel". I was intrigued.

Here's the publisher's description: Good guy Karl Bender is a thirty-something bar owner whose life lacks love and meaning. When he stumbles upon a time-travelling worm hole in his closet, Karl and his best friend Wayne develop a side business selling access to people who want to travel back in time to listen to their favorite bands. It's a pretty ingenious plan, until Karl, intending to send Wayne to 1980, transports him back to 980 instead. Though Wayne sends texts extolling the quality of life in tenth century "Mannahatta," Karl is distraught that he can't bring his friend back.

Enter brilliant, prickly, overweight astrophysicist, Lena Geduldig. Karl and Lena's connection is immediate. While they work on getting Wayne back, Karl and Lena fall in love -- with time travel, and each other. Unable to resist meddling with the past, Karl and Lena bounce around time. When Lena ultimately prevents her own long-ago rape, she alters the course of her life and threatens her future with Karl.

Rallskanken er den nye barneboka til Aleksander L. Nordaas, med nydelige illustrasjoner av Sandra Steffensen. Den følger samme struktur som Nordaas' forrige barnebok, Mister Mjukis, med rim og store illustrasjoner. Fin og stemningsfull!

Here's what I wrote on goodreads after having listened to the audio version: "Wow. I laughed. I cried. I laughed while I cried. What a quirky, beautiful, funny, heartbreaking and overall incredibly touching book." #books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #theuniverseversusalexwoods #gavinextence #fiction #skjønnlitteratur #youngadult #bookcoverlove #coverlove Hi guys. I've not posted for a couple of weeks, and the main reason for that is that I'm doing #NaNoWriMo this year. If you don't know what that is: November is the month when thousands of people set out to write a novel (each...). 50000 words in 30 days. 1667 words a day.

I have hit the halfway mark (25000 words) a couple of days early, and have only failed to hit the daily minimum once. I'm vaguely optimistic that I might in fact get through this madness. 👍I can assure you that I have made a few of the mistakes listed in the book in the picture though!

#books #bok #bøker #book #literature #litteratur #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #nonfiction #sakprosa #writing #skrive #write I found this paperback from 1952 at a local flea market, and I bought it because of the adorable cover... Tarjei Vesaas is of course also one of Norway's greatest authors, probably the most famous for his novel Is-slottet (The Ice Palace). The Black Horses, as seen in the photo, was first published in 1928.

Thank you!

It's a somewhat weird novella about a guy talking about a particular author and the books she has written. I'm not entirely sure what to say about it. Certainly a strange read... #bythesameauthor #jackrobinson #shakespeareandco #book #bøker #books #bok #reading #lesehest #bokorm #bookworm #leseglede #lesetips #nrklesetips #boktips #bookish #instabook #bookstagram #litteratur #literature #bookporn #signedbook #novella #shortstory #novelle New book!
