  • High Functioning Anxiety? Some philosophical notes of the modern Aria

    www.huffpost.com/entry/high-functioning-anxiety-signs_l_5cd42647e4b09f321bdcc6d0 I ponder why mental health as a topic has become so prominent in our experiential awareness, concern and vocabulary. From a philosophical perspective, it seems sensible. For, the prominent 20th century philosophy was existentialism, and thus is based in the preponderant existential anxiety. However, aside from the more obvious considerations where history makes sense […]

  • Philosophy and Guitar Equipment: The Tower of Babel

    xThis isn’t about what you might think it is about. I am going to attempt to speak to the problem of philosophy as it arises currently. This is to say, the problem of philosophy. The problem with philosophy nowadays, if it was ever really any different, is that to say that we are now going […]

  • Faith Standing on its Head

    From the basis of the ‘ethical’ or ‘Atemporal’ fallacy, it is possible to understand Kierkegaard’s work from a true perspective. This new perspective is contra-Sartrean Existentialsm, or perhaps, parallel. The problem with mid 20th century existentialism and it’s retroactivation upon Kierkegaard’s ethical universe, Is that through mid-20th century existentialism (indeed, what we automatically consider when […]

  • The Ethical Universe and the New Order

    OBSIDIAN. By Nick Sullo Kierkegaard famously asks the question of our times, the question that defines modernity by its post-modern parameters: Is there a teleological suspension of the ethical? The irony in which Kierkegaard couches every clause of his philosophy might be best comprehended in contemplation of a couple of other philosophers that never mentioned […]

  • Jean Paul Sartre: What is “Bad Faith?”

    The one theme from Sartre’s magnum opus, Being and Nothingness, that stuck was his commentary on “Bad Faith.”  Ignorant atheists who have never read … Jean Paul Sartre: What is “Bad Faith?”

  • “Faith Turned on its Head”

    Choosing Belief with Kierkegaard https://notentirelypyrrhonian.wordpress.com/2019/09/06/choosing-belief-with-kierkegaard/ — Read on notentirelypyrrhonian.wordpress.com/2019/09/06/choosing-belief-with-kierkegaard/ This linked post is a great case by which to begin to understand the parameters of the conventional philosophical orientation upon things. * I disagree with the writer: the leap of K is the absurd situation of already having occurred. It is not “into a choice” […]

  • The Impossible, part 4: Spiritual Oneness and the State of Incorporated Reality.

    The operative question that motivates the essays on the impossible can be formulated by the questions of determinism and contingency: Is the random aspect of the physical universe of science responsible or otherwise enacted or present in the random aspect that involves human choice, such that choice is determined by the state of the universe, […]

  • Issues and Existence.

    I subscribe to a blog called “Bigstoryguide” where he author is involved with a running commentary as he goes through the Bible. Yes, the whole Bible. His blog he calls ‘Jesus’s death to life project’. I think he just got to the New Testament. I am not a Christian; I am not religious nor prescribe […]

  • Tangent: Bad Faith, part 1

    In an earlier post, I suggest that Francis Laruelle, by his Non-philosophy, is in bad faith, ala. Jean-Paul Sartre. So I might do well by explaining what this means. One could easily come to a close idea of what bad faith might mean by comparing it to ‘good faith’. I would say that good faith […]
