I begin with that statement because… Continue reading Quantum Computing and its relevance to Philosophy.

Repetition and Repetition. 

Below is a post by Levi Bryant. Part of my one-sided interaction with him is a sort of incredulousness towards the situation wherein Mr. Bryant has found his kind of Speculative Realism; whatever title he may want to put to it, it appears that all of these SR authors (or whatever Realist projects have replaced… Continue reading Repetition and Repetition.

Concerning Commitment. Violence and Nonviolence.

Yes; one could say 'divinity'. I think the problem, as some people have talked about elsewhere, is what that term incorporates; hence the 'need' for commitment, what I could term, conventional commitment, or maybe a commitment to the institutionalized-ideologized State, the incorporated arena thereof that has been designated (conventionally) 'x-ism', or even for another arena,… Continue reading Concerning Commitment.

Yet when things have become so serious, it is only because I have been presented with my self and the… Continue reading The Problem of the Dialectic: Convention, Reality and Irony.
