The question of history

January 28th, 2018 · No Comments

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.

The question of history…and evolution

January 9th, 2018 · No Comments

This is a draft of an introduction for a new book, since discontinued, attempting to probe the difficulties many have in approaching the eonic effect… The Question of History The question of history resists the codification of science and remains an outcast of reductionist scientism. This might lead us to abandon the hopes of a […]

R48G: beyond historical theories, the eonic effect, and a new kind of history of capitalism September 21st, 2017 · No Comments Actually (see archived post below), we need only a very general outline of world history with a series of questions and a set of hypotheses: the beauty of the eonic model is that we […]

A better solution than Hegel’s to the question of history raised by Kant

November 2nd, 2014 · No Comments

Hegel’s views on history, and the intuition as to history’s hidden ‘logic’, as cited also in Zizek’s commentary (see previous post for link), are very classic: but I think they are not correct. The logic of history is something quite different, and I think that the attempt to demonstrate a progression transcending pairs of opposites […]

R48G: the eonic effect/model as a set of questions…! June 29th, 2017 · The eonic model is useful because it cogently isolates a non-random pattern in world history but leaves it as is, open to interpretation and practical use as an outline based empirically. The more elaborate model can be left as set of questions […]

R48G: a new approach to history: the eonic effect as a series of questions…

December 6th, 2017 · No Comments

We have discussed many times the problems with historical materialism, and historical theories in general. A way out is to consider a set of hypotheses in the form of a series of opposites, e.g. is historical teleological, etc… We can force ourselves to examine the historical record very carefully without necessarily having to commit ourselves […]

November 22nd, 2017 · No Comments

Is there a science of history? The question of a science of history has been indirectly critiqued by Kant and his analysis is one reason, next to the obvious evidence of the data, that we have introduced the unique innovation of post-theory: the distinction of system action and free action, or free agency. The result […]

Questioning history: the eonic model and an indirect approach to historical ‘theory’…

October 18th, 2017 · No Comments

The eonic model is useful because it cogently isolates a non-random pattern in world history but leaves it as is, open to interpretation and practical use as an outline based empirically. The more elaborate model can be left as set of questions and a warning that noone gets history straight…these questions can themselves take the […]

WHEE and the design question…//History and Evolution website

September 15th, 2017 · No Comments

The resistance to debriefing natural selection has an ideological component for a capitalist age, but also raises the issue of design with figures like Dawkins (foolishly) explicitly using selectionist arguments to promote atheism, a foolish strategy. The design issue won’t go away,

The question of the Axial Age shows how religion and secular science, so far, are both inadequate for the study of world history

May 16th, 2016 · No Comments

Enigma of the Axial Age: this study of the question of the Axial Age shows how religion and secular science are both inadequate for the study of world history, and how the scientific mind set is unable to fully analyze the place of religion in history. But it also shows the foundation of modernity in […]

…the question of religion in world history is misanalyzed by marxists and they get no second chances until they scrap old theory junk and produce something more intelligent

April 11th, 2016 · No Comments

https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/75650151/XML_DARW_GC_Axial/Enigma_of_the_Axial_Age_pdf2_2016.pdf The idiocy of Kautsky can be seen at once from a study of the Axial Age, a study dogmatic marxist pygmies will reject on sight, threatening to liquidate any such students. But the abuse of historical materialism to simply play ostrich to the facts of larger history is the undoing of the marxist movement. […]

July 28th, 2015 · No Comments

A devastating question haunts standard thinking on evolution: what if the real force of evolution acts intermittently at high-speed over a range of mere centuries? The vastness of deep time would swallow up such brief episodes and leave no trace whatever. As we examine world history precisely this possibility becomes confirmed. The question of the […]
