Historical materialism, biblical historicism, darwinism as flawed historical/evolutionary theories/myths…

April 22nd, 2018 · No Comments

Drawinism and historical materialism are two equally entrenched historical myths, next to the religious mythology of the old testament. All are failures. The biblical myth of god in history is exploded by the eonic matrix but does shows some significance in terms of an eonic interpretation… Historical materialism we have discussed many times here. It […]

Culture has moved beyond mindsets such as historical materialism…marxists have made a complete mess of their opportunity and the result is, ‘you’re fired’…

April 16th, 2018 · No Comments

It can seem divisive to critique historical materialism but our take on this is that you can pursue histomat all you want but at this point a communist movement needs a new approach. Look at our efforts to decipher new age confusion over the last few days. Reductionist psychology and western science can’t really resolve […]

The failure of historical materialism

April 11th, 2018 · No Comments

http://history-and-evolution.com/: we have produced a large number of books this year and all have open source pdf versions as listed at this website. The books adopt the perspective of the eonic effect which is a strange approach to world history and evolution via a new type of dynamic systems model. I advocate that the world […]

A lot of good reasons to scrap historical materialism for a simplified historical model based on the ‘eonic effect’

February 18th, 2018 · No Comments

Despite the apparent opacity of the ‘eonic model’ the reality is that it points to a structure easy to verify empirically that confounds our standard approaches to historical study. The model demands that we acknowledge the place of values in the emergence of factual histories and resolves the misleading distinctions of religion, civilization, and culture […]

Historical materialism’s ‘spiritual’ blindness…the hidden occult anti-modern counterrevolution of the gurus…?

January 25th, 2018 · No Comments

http://www.gurdjieff-con.net/2018/01/20/santana-dharma-new-version/ Should you read this? It is perhaps too much for marxist kindergarten. The materialism of the left has backfired and is really a version of nineteenth century scientism. In an era of ‘new age’ proliferation (much of it harmless enough, with a futurist potential) the hidden fascist conspiracies of the ‘santana dharma’ sprawl have […]

Design in history…? Marx’s historical materialism contains the ‘design’ argument of ‘stages of production’ theory…

December 8th, 2017 · No Comments

The charge of design thinking only makes sense for hard core darwinists. In fact the evidence for ‘design’ in history is overwhelming, but the term ‘intelligent design’ is wrong because the term ‘intelligent’ tends to be crypto-theistic and implies a ‘mind’. Who knows? Maybe Hegel was right… Or Schopenhauer, with this ‘Will in Nature’? Now […]

The eonic effect: failed historical materialism and collapsing christianity…a refuge for both

December 4th, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic effect (http://history-and-evolution.com) is a very elaborate study of world history with a combined framework of empirical chronology and proto-theoretical modeling that is somewhat speculative but which can be streamlined to a broad spectrum of interpretations in a remarkable concert of opposites.

The failure of historical materialism: rescuing the socialist idea from marxist dogma

December 1st, 2017 · No Comments

Marxists can’t seem to grasp the difficulties with historical materialism. But the need for a new perspective on history (and evolution) is pressing. We have suggested a way to use the eonic model as a simple empirical framework that dodges theory, provides a simple chronicle-based illustration of the evidence for some dynamic, a non-random pattern.

the harm done by historical materialism/reductionist historicism///[Marxism] How Civilization Started

September 14th, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic model lacks the full evidence of the earlier stages of the Neolithic and before, but given what we have overall it seems to be the case that two earlier epochs (before that started by Egypt/Sumer, etc…) seeded the development of civilization with a relative starting point ca. 8000 BCE, probably in the Near […]

But keep in mind that the analysis of history via capitalism is equally flawed: societies will not evolve to a higher level via capitalism. The issue is complicated by the question of technological evolution, but basically the eonic effect shows that the […]

July 15th, 2017 · No Comments

I have spent two decades critiquing Guns, Germs and Steel but the critique from the left, which is appropriate, forgets that marxism never gets a critique and its theory is a set of core fallacies that are crippling the left. GGS will soon be forgotten but marxist confusion is a persistent set of confusions that […]
