  • the Divergent Proposal.

    The other week I read a post that I believe was by Donna Haraway ( I could ne wrong) that was addressing something to the effect that was “the cresting and crashing of the Speculative Realism wave”, and again I was left in an odd sort of state. I don’t remember just what exactly her […]

  • Post-modernism’s Worth. 

    When we are too close to an event, we talk about it as from a distance. That is, what we say is automatically distanced from the event, a maximum distance. The event is thus, by this occurrence, an object. As opposed to our psychotherapeutic model, the closer we are to an event, the more dishonest […]

  • The End of the Preliminary Explorations and the Beginning of the Exposition of the Subject.

    The irony cannot be over nor under determined. * It is not an easy thing to do, whenever, to throw away the ladder, but when the time comes, it turns out to be the easiest thing. I am sure Neitchze or Witgenstein had quite a different meaning than this amended version I am putting here, […]

  • Am I Beginning to Make Any Sense at All?

    I agree with Malabou’s initial consideration. “Relinquishing transcendentalism”. How tentative. How civilized. But her approach, I must say, just like all subsequent considerations, asks good questions but then never quite gets to any answer what so ever more than a reiteration, a parroting of conventional method. In very short verse: this is correlationalism. The very […]

  • Some more Zizek and Harman bashing ( but not really).

    Reply to Dark Ecologies. Pertinent to this ongoing Constructive Undoing. Sorry for what appears to be an entering at mid context…. “The parallax view” (sorry; evidence of how long it’s been) I can’t find exact quotes (Zizek is soooo anecdotal, one almost has to wonder if he is really saying anything beyond a swirling of […]

  • Harman and the True Object.

    The question is no longer that of Being, for Heidegger has destroyed being, like a forensic analysis of material. Being was viable so long as there was a dialectic whereby reality could be based upon its one vision through the oscillating features held from one another, like a binary star. Hiedegger destroyed the dialectic (for […]

  • Apology. Harman and The Facticity of the Event.

    I apologize. See that this blog is not so much an assertion of what I believe is so correct, but more a working space where I play with ways to situate discourse and test out the ideas they purport against what I am trying to say (which is why I would like feedback). Strong words, […]

  • An Unheard Blow: A Strike that Can’t Be Blocked to Graham Harman’s Wondrous New.

    Dealing with Graham Harman and the True Object oriented. I got a copy of the book series called “Xplained” on Martin Heidegger written by Graham Harman. I thought it was something different, but when I got the book and started reading it I saw that it is more an actual kind of primer of Heidegger. […]

  • SE part 10ai, part B: The Revolution Will not be Televised (nor disseminated in virtual media or social networking sites).

    SE part 10ai, part B: The Revolution Will not be Televised (nor disseminated in virtual media or social networking sites).

    I suppose the question left is a trick question because one cannot dismiss the link already established between philosophy and ideology and politics; there is indeed reality to be dealt with. The question behind philosophical learning has to do with if it has already been or is being dealt with by the historical discourse, if […]

  • SE Part 10a. Transformation and Conversion.

    SE Part 10a. Transformation and Conversion.

    The Significant Event is to be distinguished from an event in reality. The Significant Event involves reality but never occurs in reality; it is the encountering of the point of contention. Significance itself may occur in reality as various events can begin a count of meaning in the arena of pure multiples (reality), from events […]
