  1. I finally found a replacement for the long lost Cat Mirror Stage post I made a while back!
  2. OK, everything should be fine with reading articles now. Let me know if there are still problems.
  3. 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!
  4. There are currently some database errors with the Articles DB which I'm sorting out. Sorry about this...they should be back online soon.
  5. 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!
  6. Looking forward to the inaugural meeting of he Dialectical Realism Research Group this Friday! 🤓

  7. Duly noted. Since I'm a relatively-recently converted cat person, I also want to post some pics of my beloved (And RIP one year now) cat Seven.
  8. You are welcome sir. Anything I can do to help promote the arts and humanities in an age of terminal scientocracy...
  9. As far as the mobile phone display goes, it's a bit of a crap shoot depending on the size of the original image, portrait vs. landscape orientation etc. I know it's a very un-Google thing for me to say but the site works best on desktop.
  10. Hmm...weird. Have you tried toggling the Bold option for your text? And what browser are you using?
  11. There should be a Topic Logo button near the top of your new forums post screen. As @NotWithoutMyOntic said, try it out in the Sandbox and let me know if you don't see it.
  12. There are some great coincidences here....and some which don't seem like coincidences at all... Spurious Correlations WWW.TYLERVIGEN.COM Why do these things correlate? These 15 correlations will blow your mind. (Is this headline sensationalist enough for you to click on it yet?)
  13. I don't know which fares worse...this person's understanding of Hegel or his clumsy pro-Trump sentiments. 🤔 I had to respond (it's up there). For the record, Hegel did not use anything like "Thesis-Antithesis-Synthesis" (which was Fichte not Hegel, as I recall); and to characterise his thinking as incapable of handling anything which wasn't divided into "polar opposites" reduces his thought to a caricature. I think maybe he slept through Philosophy 101...
  14. I just watched this again...still gives me goosebumps.
  15. From my old reading of Philosophy of History, Napoleon was seen as a world-historical figure and thus an integral part of the unfolding of absolute spirit. It was the closest thing I could think of related to ablation. 🤔
  16. Neil Peart's missing a tom and takes out his frustration in some great drum riffs while it's repaired.
  17. Some great pareidolics(?) This one is my favourite:
  18. In fact, my lovely wife bought me this oh-so-cool shirt...she doesn't even read Hegel but she gets it!
  19. (and yes, that is a joke!)
  20. Have you tried another browser? I've never had issues with the background picker on any browser, so I can't replicate the issue on my end.
  21. As part of my research for an upcoming book chapter, I have begun reading in earnest G.W.F. Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit.

    For my sins.

    Good Grammar Is Went

    I think it's because most people respond with "I'm good" (although I think 'good' has come to be accepted colloquially).
