I am noticing some minor edits still. often it takes one pair of eyes many times going over the same thing to catch all the errors. * Using Slavoj Zizek's book "Event" as a platform, The Philosophical Hack is a hack… Continue reading So Close…The First Part, out soon.
Quite soon The First Part of The Philosophical Hack: The Concluding Unscientific Postscript to Event will be published. The truth of the situation is that the notion of our “post-truth”, or the incredulity involved with not knowing how to discern what is true, is itself true. So, what does that mean?
