  • Happy indigenous peoples day!

    i acknowledge and recognize. we are all in this together.

  • 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 […]

  • Intensionality

    Contrary to Hersserl and those phenomenal agents, intension is not centered in some thoughtful subject; it is centered in the object. This is the essence of the meaning of multiplicity. There is no origination of thought in a central, unitive subject agent of transcedence. There is only the fullness of imminent existence taking place in […]

  • Post-post-modern-modernism: The Mistake of Irony; Or, The Ironic Mistake.

    Perhaps a little bitty on postmodernism and the, what could be labeled of our current situation, post-post-modern-modernism. Here are a couple links that roughly define the conventional problem I will address in this essay. The first is a little less ridiculous than than the second. The first offers us an argument for why postmodernism is […]

  • Non-Philosophy and Aphilosophy: Departure. An Exercise of Metalepsis; Spinoza and the term part 2; Laruelle and the Quadripartite.

    If we are steadfast in our undertaking we will not labor our attitude of righteousness. Yet, we likewise must not fall back into the comfort of the easy way. The challenge is to indeed be challenged, and not to again be presented with another variation of puzzle, for by now the puzzles are seen to […]

  • 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 […]

  • Direct Tangent 6.5: What I Think Is A Pretty Good Indication of My Position.

    If I am saying so myself: this title is pretty fkg great; hilarious. Anyways…. My reply to a comment by Mr. Adkins came out pretty good, so I’m posting it (with some editing): Mr. Adkins: – “”There is no contradiction where there is radical duality”. Also, the excerpt above is interesting, the one about there […]

  • Direct Tangent 5.31: Radical, Immanence and Faith.

    I hope you have a good appetite. We are at a table in a restaurant. Laruelle is my dinner partner in the seat next to me. He is having non-philosophy as his main dish; ironically, I have have opted for the buffet. There are others at our table but they have not been introduced. Many […]

  • Direction 5.18: Recant and Reoccasion.

    I am a bit hard-headed. I think most critical thinkers/philosophers are. I find this the best basic method for my endeavor, which is a grounding of my experience in discourse. In this effort I have come across, what I could call, using the most true, and possibly non-philosophical sense of the term, guru that have […]

  • Direct Tangent 4.28: What can I say ? Part 1.

    Its about time I get to the point. I have spent plenty of time talking around the issue. I have talked about Bad Faith and mentioned the issue, I’ve talked about aspects of the issue and indicated that all this has to do with the reason why Laruelle seems bogged down in jargon. I feel […]
