Deleuze and Nietzsche’s Types: Questions About Deleuze’s Nietzsche & Philosophy by Levi R. Bryant

[caption id="attachment_9132" align="alignnone" width="221"] Nietzsche[/caption] Questions About Deleuze’s Nietzsche & Philosophy by Levi R. Bryant A short post as I attempt to get myself back into the habit of writing here.  I would like to get back to the place where I’m writing here daily or at least a few times a week, though I confess that I’ve become a bit jaded by online writing and what it often brings and that, in terms of time and responsibilities, my life is quite different than when I was writing frequently here.  Right now my New Centre seminar on Deleuze & Guattari’s Anti-Oedipus is…

An Enchanting Abundance of Types: Nietzsche’s Modest Unity of Virtue Thesis by Mark Alfano

[caption id="attachment_9132" align="alignnone" width="221"] Nietzsche[/caption] An Enchanting Abundance of Types: Nietzsche’s Modest Unity of Virtue Thesis by Mark Alfano http://alfanos.org/Blog/?p=400 Posted on 11 October 2013 (This is a conference paper I delivered at the University of Guelph’s conference on Nietzsche and Virtue.  A suitably revised version of it will appear in the Journal of Value Inquiry.)

This is the scene that we find at the beginning of Stephane Mallarmé's Igitur, a scene that we…

Integrality and Embodiment in Jean Gebser and Sri Aurobindo – Debashish Banerji

[caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="200"] Jean Gebser (1905-1973)[/caption]    keynote for the 43rd jean gebser society conference, los angeles, 10/4/13 Jean Gebser gives us a philosophy of history which looks at emergent structures of consciousness as forms of relative concealment and unconcelament of what he calls “the ever-present Origin.” In this he can be said to follow Heidegger’s reinterpretation of Hegel, the first modern philosopher of history. Instead of Hegel’s historicism, Heidegger had put agency back in the human, and acknowledged Being as setting up the horizon and confronting beings, who find themselves in their “thrownness,” responding with language, the house…
