Badiou on Kant and Hegel

There are two main philosophical targets of Badiou as he puts in The Subject of Art:[4] Those who identify the body and the subject, in which case creativity can only take the form of experimentation with the limits of the body, an experience of the finitude and complete unity of the body. Death being the limit... Continue Reading →

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

| Download PDF | Click Here to Listen | Recommended Voice: Amy (English – GB) 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... Continue Reading →

Hermetico-Promethean Postnihilism

  To begin at the beginning we shall say that philosophy is the dialectical process of truth in time, it is an infinite questioning of that which is known, a continuity in change of the unknown, a practice of situating eternity in time. Without a relation to the requirements of one's own time philosophy may... Continue Reading →

Hegel’s Science of Logic: Quantum

C. QUANTITATIVE INFINITY (a) Its Notion § 497 Quantum alters and becomes another quantum; the further determination of this alteration, namely, that it goes on to infinity, lies in the circumstance that quantum is established as being immanently self-contradictory. Quantum becomes an other; but it continues itself into its otherness; the other is thus also... Continue Reading →

Değişim ve Yaratıcılık Mefhumlarına İlişkin Bazı Aşkınsal Ahkâmlar

Deleuze'ün tüm felsefesi insanın yaşayabileceklerini çoğaltmaya yönelikti. Buna insan bilincini genişletme çabası da diyebiliriz aslında. Ama Deleuze'ün kendinden öncekilerden farkı, genişleme için öncelikle kasılmak gerektiği yönündeki saptamasından ileri geliyordu. O, Schelling'e dayanan doğa felsefesinin merkezine genleşip-daralan bir madde yerleştirmişti. Böylelikle statik merkez kavramını akışkan bir şeyle doldurarak içten çökertmek suretiyle ortadan kaldırabileceğini düşünüyordu. Beş duyumuzun... Continue Reading →

Dünyanın merkezinde ne olduğu konusunda yapılan araştırmaların en önemlisi Japon bir bilim adamının dünyanın merkezindeki koşulları sanal ortamda yaratıp oluşan görüntüyü bilgisayar ekranından gözlemlemeyi mümkün kılan çalışmasıdır. Buna göre dünyanın merkezinde aşırı yoğunlaşmış ateşten kristal ormanları bulunmaktadır. Varlığın özünü oluşturan maddenin plazma veya protoplazma benzeri akışkan bir madde olduğu ise farklı zamanlarda ve farklı suretlerle... Continue Reading →

The Time of Trauma and the Immanence of Eternity

In my previous post I've attempted to trace, clarify and briefly define certain positions and oppositions within the philosophical field today. It is my conviction that at the root of philosophical enquiry lies a series of dialectical relationships between affirmation and negation, transcendence and immanence, reality in-itself and reality for-us, finitude and infinity, being and...
