Homo sapiens at the brink

August 31st, 2018 · No Comments

The dangers of economic fundamentalism haunt sociological thought but a larger view issues a kind of instant warning: man cannot live by markets alone. The market myth assumes without saying so that the future of human evolution will be accomplished by ‘laissez-faire’ in the play of economic forces. It is not true and we can […]

Modernity: beyond economic fundamentalism

August 31st, 2018 · No Comments

http://darwiniana.com/2018/08/30/a-system-of-epochs-done-right/ Our discussion of ‘epochs’ in world history exposes a mystery behind its ‘dynamics’, one that any theory of history would have to resolve, or at least, take into account.

A system of epochs done right….

August 30th, 2018 · No Comments

The eonic effect shows the very simple (and still mysterious) solution to the question of historical epochs: there is a long and a short version, the long is speculative but strongly suggested, the short is right under our noses as an empirical given: the era beginning with Egypt/Sumer ca. 3000 BCE, the era beginning in […]

the project of postcapitalism founders in bad philosophy…//Existentialism and Marxism: Tensions, Ambiguities, and Resolutions?

August 30th, 2018 · No Comments

The sad irony is that none of the ‘isms’ destined to create the future of modernity are able to do so. Existentialism seems now (one grew up with sartre, camus, etc…) to be a fad leading to postmodern interludes, its grand worry over ‘existence’ versus ‘essence’ irrelevant now. No doubt however the attempt to think […]

Marxist historicism

August 30th, 2018 · No Comments

R48G: quick costume change for marxist historicism December 8th, 2017 · Our previous post on the issue of design in history suggests that the marxist ‘design’ argument is too limited.
