The Philosophical Problem: Philosophy and subjectivity.

The Universe is not an impersonal place. On the contrary; it is a deeply personal space.

Subjectivity as a personal set of ideas and motivations that only partially activate decisions and responses against a cold and chaotic universe, is a representation of a philosophical problem.

Insomuch as it is understood as a problem to be solved philosophically, there lies the problem. Because it is a philosophical problem. It is a problem with the method that we reflexively and automatically associate or identify as philosophy, as a totality of subjectivity segregated onto itself. Our problem is a problem of philosophy; it is a problem with the way that we handle problems.

That philosophy of the past, say, 200 years or so, which has led us to our current condition, is an example of a pathology. One that can be discerned through A type of psychoanalysis. But this is not the static traditional freudian or Lacanian or even Zizekian form necessarily. The type of psychoanalysis of which I speak is a view upon itself that traditional Western en lightened rationality (whatever name we want to call it, even if we want to call it a “dark and lighten meant”) tends not to permit or even admit.
