All is Vanity, for Real…Kant, Latour and the Pass, part 2.

Ok; here is the post I meant to put: So we come to Bruno Latour, and his notion of the pass. What is it that allows for the repetition whereby self-fulfillment is denied? This is the question of 'what happened'. We will never get to answer the question of what 'is happening' until we answer… Continue reading All is Vanity, for Real…Kant, Latour and the Pass, part 2.

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… Continue reading Post-modernism’s Worth.

Repost: A little bit on Object Ontology.

Nonsense! Ridiculousness! The usual suspects rage. So now we need to try and reel it in. If the fish has been snagged by the line, then we need to start to bring it back away from the fish of mere ideas, back from objectival discourse that sees authors and their ideas as True Things to… Continue reading Repost: A little bit on Object Ontology.

The Matter At Hand, Part 2: The Mark of Faith — Object Oriented Philosophy, the ‘New’ Realisms and Post-Modernism.

"What happened ??" * In the event of reading an essay generated by the PMG, we have to think from the perspective of not knowing that it is a fake, keeping in mind that this program is admittedly old and stunted in its potential, but that it would be possible to write a more complex… Continue reading The Matter At Hand, Part 2: The Mark of Faith — Object Oriented Philosophy, the ‘New’ Realisms and Post-Modernism.

SE part 7; A Synopsis of the Issue So Far.

So its about time I get back to the issue at hand. I have been writing what is turning out to be an extensive essay concerning Graham Harman and the Object Orientation of the SpeculativeRealists, but it is getting much too long and getting to be, as it turns out, a way more tangential discussion… Continue reading SE part 7; A Synopsis of the Issue So Far.

Aphilosophy, Convention, Faith and God.

They have sat down for dinner. The philosophers are at the first table, the conventional methodogists at another. The philosophers are having bread and water that are hardly distinguishable from prime rib and Cabernet Sauvignon, and they are having a wonderful time. The methodologists have the best of the house and their conversation revolves up… Continue reading Aphilosophy, Convention, Faith and God.

The Problem of the Dialectic: Convention, Reality and Irony.

The dialectic, as I have said earlier, cannot be taken too seriously. For when it is, the break that has perspective finds the levity that brings the truth of the matter over the impending doom. Yet when things have become so serious, it is only because I have been presented with my self and the… Continue reading The Problem of the Dialectic: Convention, Reality and Irony.
