Problematizing Whiteness; Correlation and the Two Routes.

In my very early and preliminary reflections on whiteness and being white it seems obvious to me that two issues are present in the philosophical reckoning. 1) The theoretical postmodern maxim of discursive reality. And 2) The fact that no human Being is actually white. At best, even an albino is not truly white. If… Continue reading Problematizing Whiteness; Correlation and the Two Routes.

The Extensions of Denial: Philosophy of the Real and Addiction.

unfinished notes... On the possibility of philosophy: Philosophy, which once seemed outmoded, remains alive because the moment of its realization was missed... ...This describes the same situation as 'the philosophical revolution'... ...The summary judgement that it had merely interpreted the world is itself crippled by resignation before reality, and becomes a defeatism of reason after… Continue reading The Extensions of Denial: Philosophy of the Real and Addiction.

Philosophy, Colonialism and Partition.

Perhaps the title should have included "non-philosophy". lol This talk concerns the opening whereby philosophy is indicated to its method through the ending that supersedes its domain. Specifically, and in the context of Francois Laruelle's "Christo-fiction", that which supersedes any conventional appropriation is the quantum. In particular, there is no philosophical posture that is able to bring… Continue reading Philosophy, Colonialism and Partition.

The Significant Event: The Romance, Irony and the Veto.

Significance. What we can call the Romance is based upon and or around what I call the significant experience, which falls well in line with Alain Badiou's 'Event', what could then be called the significant event. The irony that surrounds this feature of being human concerns a confusion of the individual, between what arises of… Continue reading The Significant Event: The Romance, Irony and the Veto.

The Story; On the Big Story: An Aphilosophical Non-philosophical Philosophical Rendition.

Let's see how much people like stories. I investigate here the Big Story of the Bible as it may concern human history. I will try to fill in the Story with what I see as human course. In a way, it is a story of the Big Story, which amounts, I guess, to a type… Continue reading The Story; On the Big Story: An Aphilosophical Non-philosophical Philosophical Rendition.

The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.

Whew! Those Impossible essays really get thick. So perhaps a rejoining to a more approachable speaking. But hold on! The ride is just getting fun. I have been interacting through comments and replies with Dave, who writes the blog called "Big Story Guide". Our conversation is quite wonderful, so, just as I used our conversation… Continue reading The Impossible; Part 5. Existence and the Story of Death to Life.

The Impossible; part 2.

I am offering nothing new. Yet, it seems that very few people have understood what has already been told. The fact that most people want and expect something new shows, in relief, that a new configuration of terms is needed, but I am quite sure that what is impossible again will be put into good… Continue reading The Impossible; part 2.
