Fight Club, The Things You Own, End Up Owning you

You might think about Tyler Durden as an anarchist. But to tell the truth, he’s not that far away from Stoic philosophy. He’s more inclined to the predecessor of Stoicism, Cynicism.

“Alexander the Great found the philosopher looking attentively at a pile of human bones. Diogenes explained, “I am searching for the bones of your father but cannot distinguish them from those of a slave.”
― Diogenes

Not that far from Tyler is he?

If you have no idea of what I’m talking about, then you’re in for a treat, go read the book now: Fight Club

If you don’t have time however, this video by
Einzelgänger
is really good.

“This is your life and its ending one moment at a time.”
― Chuck Palahniuk
