  1. I think its important for everyone to remember that language has a history. the age seems to be marked by authoritarian powers who want to insinuate control over as much of public life as they can, and this usually begins with either abolishing or rewriting history (including "Make America Great Again," which invokes and at the same time erases a mythical Golden Age of American history). This includes attempts to make language static, which does a lot to close down discussion and particularly discussion which reminds us that things change. Look at the word "nigger." That word obviously has a huge emotional charge in America, but it has also been re-appropriated in the last few decades to point to something other than its pejorative meaning (the obvious example: in hip hop and gangsta rap "nigga" tends to mean a fellow black person or gang member or...you get the picture). As you all know I'm an old-fashioned political crank in this respect who is totally in favour of hitting people over the head with these kinds of things, so I support the phrase in the spirit of having dialogue about it.

  7. So I was researching more Jung for my book revisions and ended up looking for a copy of the Jung-White Letters - correspondence between Carl Jung and a pastor by the name of Victor White. The book is either expensive or hard to find, but when I looked on bookfinder.com imagine my surprise when... WTH? Funniest thing about this is that if there actually were a "performance" of this I'd be tempted to go see it....😀

  10. Well...in and amidst preparing chapters for publication, reading, research, and squeezing a couple of new Tutor Clients in to the mix, I'm pleased to announce something I've wanted to add to the community for some time now - the LiquidFractal Public Humanities Initiative! The PHI is designed to bridge the stereotypical gap between scholarly research and what some people still so quaintly call (in the age of Trump!) "the real world." Articles in Public Humanities are meant to showcase research and deepen understanding of philosophical issues in ways which resonate with people inside and outside the academy. Open Learning is all about breaking down these faux boundaries and making knowledge available to everyone, but this doesn't mean commodifying ideas and watering them down to make them more "marketable" or "palatable." So even if there are philosophical concepts and technical jargon, the idea is for both sides of the divide to talk to each other and ask questions. You can access the Public Humanities area off the Content option in the top menu, or if you're lazy like me and just want a link.... https://www.liquidfractal.org/research/public-humanities/ The first PHI contribution is a shortened, abbreviated version of an article due for publication in Cosmos and History. It focuses on Schelling's idea of Nature and the implications it has for the notion of an "ecological civilisation," which is seen as a counterbalance to the neoliberalist objectification and plundering of the environment. Other articles may well be more informal in nature; the idea is to present a varied and organic selection of thinking and scholarship. Enjoy, and as always post your suggestions and ideas!
