    What is Deleuze?

    It seems they are both right. Francois Laruelle wrote this piece "Neitzsche contra Heideggar" seemingly about Heideggars interpretation of Neitzsche - not sure if it is part of a larger collection or not, but I know it is recently/currently being translated. Here is some from the translation:

    Who are your favourite philosophers?

    @version have you started that Bergson book yet? Or, has anyone any experience reading Bergson? What is it like?

    5D Chess

    Now we need a machine to beat us at time-travel chess. I wonder if such a machine would identify a sure-fire method there, as well.

    'structural'

    I think so too - at the very least, it's a step forward, no? The reflexivity of the agent allows it to realize the role it plays, as a part, in the system/machine/structure. Until it is able to reflect as such, the agent is like how our computers are now: only able to execute hardwired...

    'structural'

    Thank you, well-worded, tying things together. Do we know of attempts to establish any such "protocol for translating frames of reference"? Part of the reason I'm interested in "reality tunnels" and ideological transformations, mapping how one value-framework can transform into another, and if...

    'structural'

    Bit late to party, but I must ask @poetix : Since you argue that effective and simplifying models can be identified/discovered/created (as opposed to... conceptual chaos?), would you also argue that there is always a more effective model awaiting realization? I'm inclined to use the term...

    What is the difference between Art Deco and International Moderne?

    I mean whatever the common ideas of it are - like my understanding, which is vague and low resolution. "Popular" probably wasn't the word for it, think "common" is better. I was just wondering how much the passing/pedestrian understanding, such as mine, keeps intact the message/intention of the...

    What is the difference between Art Deco and International Moderne?

    I mean whatever we call modernist aesthetically, but I had architecture in mind, given this thread. I have a pretty blunt understanding of it, and was curious as to how the popular understanding of modernism lines up with the ideas of its initial practitioners. Does the common sense of the word...

    What is the difference between Art Deco and International Moderne?

    Thanks @Rudewhy, a distinction I was not aware of. Didn't even know International Modernism was a thing, frankly. How much of what we call modernist, aesthetically, is traced back to this? Was anything lost along the way? Was any baggage picked up, along the way, that wasn't sent by the...

    The Prosthetic God

    @version , cool thread by the way. A couple side points: Could the extension of the human sensorium (broadly, "both motor and sensory") also amount to a connecting of ostensibly disconnected nodes/minds? Like a cluster of points each having a territory that radially expands until they all...

    The Prosthetic God

    I haven't heard of it, but it sounds interesting. Wiki credits Durkheim, who I know nothing of, but its not clear to me: is the theory his? Does sacred/profane correlate with divine/mundane, or is there something else that qualifies it?

    The Prosthetic God

    True, I don't even know too much about the guy. Just thought, given the relevance, he might've had some interesting things to say. My point was that this talk about the fabrication of God seems, as far as I can tell, to have gained academic traction around that time, guessing around early/mid...

    The Prosthetic God

    Anyone here familiar with Feuerbach? I believe much of the "God didn't create man, man created God" discourse revolves around him. That would seem to be a spiritual externalization of man by man, rather than a technological one, no? Perhaps I am forcing a parallel.

    Frank Ramsey

    I like how you frame it, tie it together. I hadn't thought of continental/analytic semiotics like that - but I would tend to agree that, generally, both poles need to be pushed as if they alone were correct, in order for the (actually correct?) balance to be reached. Although we can also argue...

    Cancellations

    What about "cultural revisionism"? Is that an effective neutral alternative to "cancel culture"?
