  3. Congratulations...you book nerd you Seriously tough....that must be quite a feeling of vindication to have it accepted after all you went through (you told me some of the stories but I'm sure that is only the tip of the iceberg). you must be thrilled mate! when is it going to come out? you said next year but when?
  4. OK, everything should be fine with reading articles now. Let me know if there are still problems.
  5. Hi everyone, The contract is signed so it's official - Romantic Metasubjectivity: Rethinking the Romantic Subject through Schelling and Jung will be published in Routledge's Philosophy and Psychoanalysis series, edited by Jon Mills! Book revisions are underway and with luck it should be published next year. Huzzah!
  6. There are currently some database errors with the Articles DB which I'm sorting out. Sorry about this...they should be back online soon.
  7. @estranger. yes all religions are equal but you can't prejudge how they are going to function in culture. religions don't exist apart from the actions of their individuals or even of their sub-groupings. and i think "looks are important" b/c a society's image does influence how other people will react tot that culture. sorry...morning coffee (and yes i know it's noon) and i'm sick. 🤧
  8. Hey @Gord Barentsen whats going on with the articles? i get errors when I try to read them.
  9. i had this problem once before. clearing the cache helped i think. PS it doesn't seem to be happening with me at the current time - text looks the way it should
  10. Brilliant news. Why aren't you posting some of your research here? Not to rip off your publishers of course, but maybe give people a taste of what you do.
  11. @traumaturgist I'm not so sure about the religion part. Should we treat all religions as equal? and do all of them represent equal membership and investment in a western culture? I know this very easily opens up accusations of discrimination against religions, but they are different aren't they? wiith different investments in what a western culture is? I also disagree with the author's emphasis on the way a society "looks" which seems to want to promote a superficial understanding of issues without exploring them further.
  12. that's great news....congrats! 👍 The book chapter sounds particularly interesting. Can you say something more about it? I know Sartre has a volume on "Existential Psychology" so I wonder if your material has any bearing on how psychology relates more broadly to existentialism (or existential issues in general).
  13. Hello everyone, I've been busy behind the scenes updating the website software (with all the rigamarole that involves), but wanted to post some sort of an update as to what will be going on this year. I've been invited to contribute a Psychology chapter to the upcoming Palgrave-Macmillan Handbook of German Idealism and Poststructuralism! This text will be coming out some time next year, so this year a lot of time will be spent reading and researching before I begin writing. I'll post updates as I go for those of you who are interested. Romantic Metasubjectivity has also been submitted to Routledge for publication! Well, almost...the wheels of academic turn slowly indeed so it's still being considered by the publisher, but I have a solid endorsement from key Schellingians in the field and the editor of Routledge's Philosophy and Psychoanalysis series, so here's hoping it's just a matter of dotting the Is and crossing the Ts until a contract is formally offered. Apart from that, I have an article waiting to be revised and several other books waiting to be read...and Hegel. Hegel is always here....now I know what they mean when they refer to "The Spectre of Hegel." 😀 Hope this update finds everyone well. More as it happens!

  18. That's amazing...I haven't tacked Either/Or yet but who is writing that exactly? I mean in Either/or since Kierkegaard was a pseudonymous writer? and why wouldn't memory instill hope? isn't that all we have for going forward into a future that we can't know?
  19. well right now I dabble in Sartre but without the time presently in my own existence to read anything heavy (oh, the irony)...more of the existentialist mindset in my own life right now. I have read some Kierkegaard though.
  20. Your site looks good (if empty)....waht do you read if I may ask?
  21. Here's an interesting article I came across which I wanted to post. It is a review of Jeremy Waldron's The Harm in Hate Speech (2013). Public Hostility | Literary Review of Canada REVIEWCANADA.CA Many modern constitutional democracies, including Canada, have prohibited what is colloquially known as hate speech—the expression of views about minority groups for the purpose of vilifying or fostering... Here are a couple of interesting passages from the article: So I think that is Michael Plaxton unpacking Waldron's argument. What do you all think about this?
