A Comment on Ontological Equivocation and the Possibility of Plurality.

The thought of Plurality came to be right now in coming across Graham Harman's plug for a couple new Object Oriented books. In particular, the ideas of Tristan Garcia, the "Life Intense". Now, I have not read hardly anything of Tristan; what I have read sort of left me pondering. Now, I just read the summary… Continue reading A Comment on Ontological Equivocation and the Possibility of Plurality.

Philosophy and Racism.

The other day, I commented on a post over at Larval Subjects. Someone replied to my last comment: Racism is socially constructed. Just like gender. They are just signifiers without a signified. Now how do you think you can explain and convince someone who doesn't even know this kind of thinking exists? This is a… Continue reading Philosophy and Racism.

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.

Zizek and the Event of the Past.

In his book "Event", the chapter section 'Connection 5.2', Slavoj Zizek, in his usual manner of changing the stakes of the game in the middle of the game, discusses what he notes Delueze calls the "pure past". I think Zizek kind of fails at this attempt (at least we can safely excuse Delueze's 'Zennnnnnnnnnnn Ohhmmmmm'… Continue reading Zizek and the Event of the Past.

Love’s Kitchen and the Parallax View.

I guess this is the closest type of embed I can find. While it seems somewhat contrary to have all my theoretical/critical posts and essays and then post these songs, such as the one below, the point will be similar to how Harman talks about Lovecraft, or Miellassoux uses Mallarme, or Hiedegger brings in Holderlin.… Continue reading Love’s Kitchen and the Parallax View.

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.
