  11. Hello, I have had a paper recently published in Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy! The full citation: Gord Barentsen, "Schelling's Dark Nature and the Prospects for 'Ecological Civilisation'," Cosmos and History: The Journal of Natural and Social Philosophy 15.1 (2019): 91-116. It's open access, so I've included the PDF for anyone interested. Cosmos and History Barentsen, Schelling's Dark Nature and the Prospects for 'Ecological Civilisation'.pdf
  12. Awesome! Even more so because it doesn't have rainbow colours or tigers or unicorns like so much of the fractal stuff out there! 😎
  13. Well I guess it depends on how you define them. For someone like Schelling (certainly Schelling from 1809 on) they were at least somewhat (if not completely?) synonymous.
  14. I (finally!) got around to reading this article, because it speaks to something which has been in my mind for a long as an educator. I thought this was a very provocative article: although I don't teach in the secondary school system, I can't honestly say that everything in that article is foreign to universities, which are some of the most conservative institutions around. Particularly: Now, one of my dissertation supervisors was openly gay, and in higher education it really isn't such a big deal (at least as far as I've seen). But my issue with all of this is that secondary schools are sending generations of snowflakes to university - students who are ill-equipped to handle some of the more controversial issues about being human, including, yes, sexuality. I realise that education is fundamentally indoctrination, although (and here's where I disagree with, say, Chomsky) I think theory and literature and philosophy can help you break through the paradigmatic restrictions of school. And I guess that's what's threatening people in this article - not breaking out of the school paradigm, but the introduction of matter into that system which administrators and bureaucrats can't handle (emotionally or otherwise). But I also think this is related to the idea of companies and other employers surfing your Facebook page (and in some cases demanding access!) to image manage. I'm ambivalent about that; should employers be able to control what you say in public about them?
  15. I was notified the other day that my Fear Inoculum limited ed. CD was on its way. Apparently it has a small rechargeable screen and other goodies. 😎
  16. Oh Windows, how thy timestamps amuse me....
  17. I'm also wondering about Benjamin's relationship to Romanticism...I know some writers on the political left have traditionally criticised Romanticism for being (at best) apolitical and (at worst) supporting fascist ideologies which tend to be about blood and soil (nice organic Romantic things 😉). Of course this is a pretty radical reduction of Romanticism, but...
  18. I don't know a lot about Benjamin, but I suspect that by "aesthetics" he means the poeticization of the political. So by that I think he has in mind the massive rallies in Nazi Germany with thousands of troops marching in unison, the swastikas everywhere, the uniformity of the architecture and so forth.
  19. lol....just kidding. Thanks for the birthday wishes! I know I have been an absentee landlord around here but I've been busy with project deadlines and bla bla bla. Will be around a bit more in the future when things settle down a bit. In the meantime....you guys are simply wonderful for helping support the public side of the site by showing up and contributing when you can. Thanks! ❤️

    dude...if this is Aboriginal in design then it's almost like Aboriginal art meets alien crop circles!
  23. Hey it's your birthday? HAPPY BIRTHDAY! 🍰 (couldn't find the birthday cake lol)
  24. so i assume this guy was writing in WW 2 but what's wrong with aesthetics in modern life? didn't the Romantics want us to see art in the everyday? i agree with @NotWithoutMyOntic not sure what this guy is on about
