An Brief Heretical Outline of Our Current Situation: Phenomenology and Scientism.

Here is an end note from my upcoming book. I have changed the title to "The Moment of Decisive Significance: A Heresy". This is a book of blatant confrontation and direct exposure, and not of spirituality or self help. BTW: One of my ex-professors read a small bit of my unedited copy and replied to… Continue reading An Brief Heretical Outline of Our Current Situation: Phenomenology and Scientism.

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

Comment on the comment of Tom Sparrow’s “The End of Phenomenology”. 

The New Realism is just that: A manner of justification for a new reality.  No big deal; its cool. I just wonder how critical they go.
