Philosophy, Religion and Negation.

Here I am reading the paper that Was accepted to the conference at the University of Toronto, Negativity, Pessimisms, and Sad Affects in the Study of Religion Conference. Next week, April 18-19, 2019.  Right before THE GREAT ZIZEK PETERSON DEBATE!!

I just realized I said the name of the conference wrong in the video ๐Ÿ™‚

 

 

 

 

I am not able to attend, though, so I made a video.

Note – the negation of the speculative negative theology can appear as a philosophical venture of arguing philosophical primacy as not a religious effort. We can call a move of bad faith, the “sickness” which permeates some avenues of philosophical effort; that is, a sickness unto death. Hence the problem Highlighted in my essay. See also this essay. This is to say that the problem does not dissipate through philosophy but is rather suspened, which then perpetuates real psycho-social aggravations.

My paper can be viewed at Academia.edu HERE. Even though I wanted to post the paper with resources, it looks like it has posted without them.

And HERE is the Researchgate listing, with references.

(Im pretty sure I formatted the paper incorrectly. Oh well. Learn by living, learn by trying.)

Maybe someone will want to give me some pointers.

Heres the three books I cited:

Carol Gilligan’s In a Different Voice

Graham Harman’s Tool Being

Slavoj Zizek’s Living in the End Times

If you want to hear all the hoopla about the Zizek Peterson debate, just search Zizek Peterson debate.

Of course, I have my opinions, which can be found throughout my blog.

 

 

Who is Happier: Zizek or Peterson?

I guess we will find out.

Rock and Roll philosophy

As well, an even more important and influential counselor-philosopher will be presenting a paper at the “Pessimism and Negativity in Religion” conference Put on by the Department of religious studies at the University of Toronto the day before: Me!

And I won’t charge you a cent to come hear me read my 20 minute paper!!

Interesting that the University of Toronto is having a conference about pessimism and negativity in religion, and then the very next night they’re having the Peterson/Zizek debate on the topic of happiness :Marxism and capitalism.

Dude; that just sounds epic!

(but they don’t look very happy in their pictures)
