call for papers: “Objects Across the Traditions” https://doctorzamalek2.wordpress.com/2018/06/13/call-for-papers-objects-across-the-traditions/ — Read on doctorzamalek2.wordpress.com/2018/06/13/call-for-papers-objects-across-the-traditions/ Communication across the disciplines. I feel that what we are finding today, which is really still within the postmodern dilemma, is that the institution, or the manner of methodological propriety, has defined a space of activity where the subject agent is supposed to… Continue reading An Occasion to Discuss Our Current Methodological Block:: Call for papers: “Objects Across the Traditions”

The Issue of the Orientation Upon Objects.

The significance of the Harman/Zizek "Duet+Duel" discussion. The Irony of Biology and the Ontological Problem with Philosophy. We are biological creatures. If we are anything more than biological creatures, then we have a problem, as Slovoj Zizek say, ‘something terrible happened’. Implicit to all philosophy is this disaster: Consciousness. To be absolutely proper, the issue… Continue reading The Issue of the Orientation Upon Objects.

The Matter At Hand, Part 1: Post-Modernism, Artificial Intelligence, the Conventional Limit, and Object Oriented Ontology.

From reading an essay a few days ago, I was reminded of The Postmodern Generator. You can go read a good essay at: http://www.elsewhere.org/pomo/ Now when I say 'good' I mean it can make sense. If you have never heard of it, or didn't read the very end of the page, the PM Generator is… Continue reading The Matter At Hand, Part 1: Post-Modernism, Artificial Intelligence, the Conventional Limit, and Object Oriented Ontology.

The Significant Event, Part 4b (Part 5): Hard Correlationalism: The Crux of the Problem of Speculative Realism and the Critique of Conventional Philosophy. (And no, I am not mistaking ‘continental’ philosophy; I mean Conventional philosophy.)

We are still moving toward the meaning of the pocket veto and the significant event. Here, we consider Quentin Miessaloux and the ideas presented in his book "Beyond Finitude". * Meillassoux's argument arrives through the question: when modern science, or the mathematization of the world, had taken hold, what he identifies as the Copernican Revolution,… Continue reading The Significant Event, Part 4b (Part 5): Hard Correlationalism: The Crux of the Problem of Speculative Realism and the Critique of Conventional Philosophy.

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.
