Episode 27: Postmodernism and a Soviet Philosopher, Postmodernism and Brahman, Stylites
Postmodernism: That’s a pretty big umbrella of thought. Please excuse my broad—sloppy—use of the term.
Standpoint Epistemology: You know why whites can’t think like blacks, and men like women, or cis like queers? Because a Soviet philosopher told them it’s so.
Act = Brahman: Think hard about the verb “act.” It might be a word that Derrida himself couldn’t deconstruct. I’m not sure it’s defined by reference to something else. It might stand on its own, like the Hindu/Buddhist Brahman. I flush it out here.
Praxeology: That Brahman stuff is my attempt to slip some von Misesian thought into the postmoderns.
Lightning Segments: Mindfulness, drinking cities, essential oils, more.
The Stylites: Living on pillars in the late Roman Empire.
Theme song: Skinnin’ Lynyrd by Greg Scheske, a bespoke expert. Email him here: firstname.lastname@example.org
