I’ll actually take the time to write out a full response so hopefully I won’t encounter this garbage again.
>First of all, I'm not the German you were talking to before posting the pdf.
>and as I told you in the first point, you are confusing me with another German
I don't know why you think I assumed otherwise or why you assume it's important. You are someone who is upset at the idea that to answer further questions reading might be required, rather than someone giving you a pre-digested piece of opinion for you to parrot around and that’s what I'm not going to do.
>Second, there was not really a debate, you were just asked to answer a question concerning Veblens argument.
Maybe it's that you need to go to the source if your curiosity is at a certain level, rather than expecting others to do it, as I repeated three times now?
>It was more a question in order to receive info.
The information is there. You can learn yourself.
>You could debate the standpoint of Veblen then ofc. If it has flaws in the argument you represented to us.
I can only do that if the other party "debating" has knowledge of the subject. Thus, to debate, you need to read. I don't know why this is so unimaginable. Well I actually do know. You can too, if you read Socrates’ description of Idle Talk. Oh no, I suggested reading again...
>Third, you could give the important pages, where Veblen actually deals with tribal societies and the gender split. Instead you just throw a pdf at sombodies feet an say: read it, duh.
Books have indices and you can use ctrl+f on a pdf and find what you want if you are really hell-bent on your crusade of ignorance and not reading more than a paragraph at a time yet still pretending to be anything but what you are. Of course there's the added irony that it's in the first chapter, but that's besides the point - I don’t think anyone (like you) who isn’t capable of looking up that information is capable of having a worthwhile opinion anyway.
>There is no need to read everything in order to discuss a certain aspect in a book
>accept that not everybody can read everything including you.
Well… you keep doing that and where do you end up? Talking about things you really have no in-depth idea about. I’m sorry I suggested reading a full book which you of course don't have the time to do so in your busy schedule of watching hentai and making posts about how reading is bad.
>Academia is working like that
Certainly not in top tier institutions
>There is no profound discussion of Veblens work here
And that’s not possible without profound knowledge of Veblen’s work.
>you are the one who knows the book
Which is why I told people it's interesting, gave some key subject info, and upon further questions took my time to direct someone to a .pdf source. It’s especially sad since Veblen is rather Laconic and the subject matter is written very much to the point.
>so you can present infos about the argument to us and we could ask further questions
Again, you're assuming someone is responsible for giving you pre-digested information and what to think instead of taking the time to think for yourself.
All this wanton butthurt is because you have become so depravedly unintellectual that you not only never search, read or understand anything for yourself but go raving mad at the suggestion that someone suggest reading - since you're used to people giving you what to think, when to think in a pre-made ready-pill form.
I'm sorry you are like that, but the majority of the world thinks just like you and get the chills when they see a bunch of pages together so you have plenty of company. You shouldn't be so upset that I alone do not want to stoop down to your level. Oh shit, you just read lots of words - do you want a summary of this?
