Ontological Catastrophes and Transcendental Time Machines: Dialectics of Time and Event from Kant and Hegel, across Deleuze and Badiou, towards New Futures

The Spirit shows itself as so impoverished that, like a wanderer in the desert craving for a mere mouthful of water, it seems to crave for its refreshment only the bare feeling of the divine in general. By looking at the little which now satisfies Spirit, we can measure the extent of its loss. ~... Continue Reading →

Three Modalities of the Immanent Infinity: Life, Matter and Thought in Henry, Deleuze and Badiou

Abstract In this essay I attempt to explicate the sense in which Michel Henry’s reductive phenomenology rendering Life as affectivity resonates with Alain Badiou’s subtractive ontology rendering the subject as eternity in time. I claim that these two modes of subjectivity are the two modalities of the Real manifesting itself as quality (Henry’s patheme) and... Continue Reading →

Transendental Materyalizm, Diyalektik ve Plastisite (Johnston, Zizek, Malabou)

Adrian Johnston 2010 yılında Real Objects/Material Subjects adlı felsefi etkinlikte yaptığı Naturalism or Anti-naturalism? No thanks, both are worse: Science, Materialism and Slavoj Zizek adlı konuşmada Zizek’in ontolojisini neden Transendental Materyalizm diye adlandırdığını net bir şekilde ortaya koyar. Johnston’a göre özelde Zizek’in, genel olarak ise transendental materyalizmin amacı cogito gibi bir öznelliğin olumsuzlayıcılığının/olumsuzluğununmaddi varlıktan nasıl doğduğunu...

Dünyanın Gecesi, Hiçten Cüzi

Hiçten Cüzi: Hegel ve Diyalektik Materyalizmin Gölgesi şeklinde çevirmeyi uygun bulduğum Less Than Nothing: Hegel and the Shadow of Dialectical Materialism adlı son kitabında Slavoj Zizek, Alain Badiou’nun felsefenin dört koşulu olarak öne sürdüğü bilim, politika, sanat ve aşk kavramlarının Alman İdealizmi’nin dört atlısına tekabül ettiğini öne sürer. Buna göre Kant, Newtoncu bilimin felsefi versiyonuyla,... Continue Reading →

Kant-Hegel-Deleuze-Zizek Dörtgeni İçinden Çıkarak Doğanın Sonsuzluğunun İçkin Olduğu Aşkınsal Bir Anlam Dünyası Yaratan Transendental Materyalizm’in Ölümsüz Öznesi Schelling

Spekülatif Realizm ve Transendental Materyalizm Evrenin merkezinin dünya olmaktan ziyade güneş olduğunu iddia eden Kopernik Devrimi’nin ve aklın sınırları olduğunu, yani bilebileceklerimizin sonsuz olmadığını öne süren Kant’ın öncülüğünde gerçekleşen Aydınlanma hareketinin gözleri kör etmesi kuvvetle muhtemel bir aydınlığa kavuşmakla ne denli derin bir bağlantı içerisinde olduğunu artık hepimiz biliyoruz. Akılcılığın ışıkla ilgisi Kopernik ve Kant’tan... Continue Reading →

Projective Identification and Introjection

Melanie Klein makes a distinction between the introjected objects and the internal objects. The internal objects include the introjected objects as well as the objects of identification and the a priori fantasy images. According to Klein introjection is a defence mechanism against the anxiety and the fear of the horrible inner world of the child.... Continue Reading →

Kendi Hayâllerinin Kurbanları Olarak Slavoj Zizek’in Film Karakterleri

İdeoloji bireylerin gerçek varoluş koşullarıyla kurdukları hayalî ilişkinin bir temsilidir.[1] İflâh olmaz bir komünist olduğu artık herkes tarafından bilinen Slavoj Zizek’e sıklıkla yöneltilen sorulardan birisi de, acil çözüm bekleyen bu kadar çok siyasi sorun varken, neden doğrudan siyasi mücadeleye yönelik yazılar yazmak yerine lâfı uzatıp popüler sinema eleştirisine yöneldiğidir. Zizek’in söz konusu soruyu sormaya cüret... Continue Reading →

Dark Chemistry > Alien Manifesto: The Interrogation of the Real – Speculations on Realism and Materialism (via Object-Oriented Philosophy)

What we witness in this time is Aldous Huxley’s Brave New World turning into Rave New World. A world in which the well known and the so called lines between mind and body, fantasy and reality, nature and culture, organic and inorganic, life and death, are not just blurred, but have completely disappeared. And yet,... Continue Reading →

“Where would I go, if I could go, who would I be, if I could be, what would I say, if I had a voice, who says this saying it’s me?” (Beckett – 2)

Answer simply. It’s the same old stranger as ever, for existence, of his, of ours, there’s a simple answer. It’s not with thinking he will find me, but what is he to do, living and bewildered, yes, living, say what he may.[1] Yes, there are moments, like this moment, when I seem almost restored to...

Objet a and the Veil (via Larval Subjects .)

 Eumerdification Over at Pagan Metaphysics, Paul has posted a couple of great quotes from Dennett’s Breaking the Spell. Hopefully he won’t mind if I reproduce his post here. Paul writes: I was reading through Dennett’s Breaking the Spell again yesterday and came across an endnote that raised a laugh. Dennett is reflecting on the value... Continue Reading →

Slavoj Zizek – Love Beyond Law

"Love beyond Law" involves a "feminine" sublimation of drives into love...[love] is here no longer merely a narcissistic (mis)recognition to be opposed to desire as the subject's 'truth' but a unique case of direct asexual sublimation (integration into the order of the signifier) of drives, of their jouissance, in the guise of the asexual Thing...
