An Attempt at Discussing Some ‘Disparities’: Terrorism, Religion, Truth and Belief.

Taking a cue from Amorinblog, I am making an attempt to speak to the notion of disparities. Lets see how is goes.   What is terrorism? When we think about the activities of terrorism, a marginal view might situate terrorism in terms of truth. What we have with the possibility of terrorism is a function… Continue reading An Attempt at Discussing Some ‘Disparities’: Terrorism, Religion, Truth and Belief.

Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.

I seem to have found a significance for Anslem's proof. It may be that it is not significance for whether God might exist, but, as I have said, significance for how I present ideas. We will start with the rendition from Princeton's site. I think they have a pretty good rendition there. Without all the strict logical… Continue reading Anslem’s Argument for the Proof of the Existence of God, the Disruption of Time, and the Categorization of Philosophical Behavior.

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.

…and sowing the seeds: Reply to Blake with draft excerpts from “The Second Moment”.

Reply to Terrence Blake's recent post over at Agent Swarm: As usual Terrence you pegged it. It's strange how I view it and actually I can totally agree with you and yet somehow there's something that I'm not agreeing with and really that has to do with my work, The strange situation that I find… Continue reading …and sowing the seeds: Reply to Blake with draft excerpts from “The Second Moment”.

Time is Longer That We Think..

If we think there was a post-modern era, and now we are in a another era, think again. While I have my difficulties with Bryant, he at least appears to engage with ideas and text in a manner that defies 'temporal eras'. So again we have a further evidence of the need for a bifurcation,… Continue reading Time is Longer That We Think..

The Modern of Post Modernism; The Anthropocene, Object Orientation and the Possibility of Ground.

  I feel it is time to clear the air; the smoke of post-modernism still seems to linger. It is time we come to terms with what Post-Modernism means, what it meant, what it is. There is no debate in this; any debate that would uphold a sort of PM catch-all has missed the issue.… Continue reading The Modern of Post Modernism; The Anthropocene, Object Orientation and the Possibility of Ground.

Redrawing the Partition Whereby Philosophical Discourse Leads to Particular Decisions of Route. 

It is interesting to me the various places and occasions that move us to consider things and their lighting.  Here is one of those occasions: NPR: Gender and Willingness to Compete. Of course, this is a general overview presented in its brevity for the purpose of the general education of the reasonably intelligent. But nevertheless,… Continue reading Redrawing the Partition Whereby Philosophical Discourse Leads to Particular Decisions of Route.
