The limits of historical materialism May 9th, 2018 · September 20th, 2017 · http://darwiniana.com/?s=minimalist+eonic+effect Looking backwards we have to wonder if Marx didn’t browbeat the left into his theories. Whatever the case, the hold of the marxist canon on its adherents is tenacious. But it has come to be a burden. And the actual format […]

The ‘eonic effect’ and the limits of historical materialism

September 2nd, 2018 · No Comments

The idea of the dialectic is often invoked but in fact it is rarely used. One of the ironic uses of the ‘eonic model’ taken empirically is the way if forces the issue of many ‘contraries’:

popper falsifies historical materialism…thanks, karl…//The string theory wars show us how science needs philosophy | Aeon Essays

August 25th, 2018 · No Comments

The question of string theory appears to confront science finally with the ‘dratted’ popper and his falsifaction viking raids (which excluded neo-classical economics). The classic attack on marxism is generally ignored by marxists but it might be better to simply grant the point, toss in the towel and note that a theory-less subject is empirically […]

The failure of historical materialism

August 6th, 2018 · No Comments

Derelict histomat January 14th, 2018 · http://www.marxist.com/an-introduction-to-historical-materialism/part-one-what-is-history.htm The standard views of historical materialism don’t work and their inadequacy is glaringly evident at this point. First, to pit idealism against materialism is never going to work. Idealists will win the argument even if you reject hegelian extravagance, and behind Idealism stands a Kantian so-called ‘transcendental idealism’, […]

Eonic effect versus historical materialism

R48G: eonic effects, a new model of history and virtual revolution October 9th, 2017 · https://www.dropbox.com/home/Public?preview=Two+Manifestos+version+2.pdf It seems that a reluctance to promote the ‘eonic model of world history’ confronted with the marxist legacy is misguided and that a more forceful presentation of that is indicated. We can always up to a point have our […]

Historical materialism as problematical

R48G: the eonic effect, beyond historical materialism, and a path to ‘universalism’…beyond theory, the eonic effect as a warning… June 14th, 2017 · We need to issue a warning to marxists that, despite the great cogency of their corpus, a new left cannot replicate the classic canon without a thorough upgrade.

Historical materialism is no longer believable to the general public and in fact has lost the vast majority of its older audience.

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 […]

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.
