Socrates has scored! Some of that wonderful Meta Philosophy

“Socrates has scored!” cries Michael Palin. “The Greeks are going mad! Socrates scores, got a beautiful cross from Archimedes. The Germans are disputing it. Hegel is arguing that the reality is merely an a priori adjunct of non-naturalistic ethics, Kant, via the categorical imperative, is holding that ontologically it exists only in the imagination, and Marx is claiming it was offside.”

There has been an interesting, if eliptical, back and forth between myself and one of my favorite internet philosophy minds, Adrian at Immanence. It is my contention that the kinds of dichotomies that invoke fundamental binaries such as Presence and Absence, and its ancestors Subject/Object, Self/World, Self/Other are essentially non-ecological, and as such non-ethical in thought. He hopes to write on greater length about the tension between philosophies of abundance and philosophies of negation, and I look forward to it. Conversation brought on because of volcanos and Herzog, who can beat that?
