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.

Repost:One and Two: Politics, Governance, and Antagonism; and comment. 

First the repost:  Perhaps it could be said that politics is that which occurs at that precise moment that we learn to count to Two.  If this were the case, then it would follow that not everything is political.  Everything can become political, but politics is something is something that must be made to be. … Continue reading Repost:One and Two: Politics, Governance, and Antagonism; and comment.

The Fallacy of Realism.

(Da Sein and the Phenomenon, part 2) If we pay attention, then we may notice that we have been deceived. But most do not notice. The distinction, then, is made between these two ‘awarenesses’, these two ‘knowledges’. So we have really three distinctions, three ‘modes’ evidenced in philosophical authorship. One; of the deception. Denial that there… Continue reading The Fallacy of Realism.

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.

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.
