What a hoot Fred H talking about metaphysics.! Freds "metaphysics" and his politics are as subtle as a cruise missile. Marion did no such thing. All he did was string together another clever sequence of words. Just an extension of the never-ending Western quest to describe, and hence to gain power and control over everything.
Like everyone in the West, including Fred H, he (Marion), is part of a "culture" in which the "mind" has been thoroughly secularised for at least 200 years---Humpty Dumpty was shattered a very long time ago.
ALL Western universities, even those that pretend to be sympathetic with religion and Spirituality, are totally embedded and enfolded within the anti-spiritual secular "world"-view. From the perspective of a fragment of Humpty's broken shell, all kinds of clever word-smiths such as Marion, try to create a "metaphysics" that accounts for everything. If you begin with a fragment, that fragment will govern or circumscribe everything you say and do. Posted by Anonymous to Feel Philosophy at 8:54 AM, February 20, 2008

Methinks the author plus Badiou and all of his admirers, and all of the theorists, ought to read the marvellous Coming Into Being by William Irwin Thompson to discover the relation between the poetic imagination/VISION and the usual dim-witted reductionist "philosophy" generated in the Western mind-factories (universities).

This reference is part of the conversation about what would Jesus deconstruct. Surely the answer is almost everything to do with the vast edifice of churchianity. After all Jesus was scathingly critical of the pharasaical religion of his time and worked and taught completely outside of and essentially in opposition to the eccliastical structures and äuthorities of his time---which is of course why he had to be gotten rid of, because the Truth with a capital T was just as unacceptable then as it is now.
The entire death and "resurrection"(and its "salvation") script is a consoling and destructive lie, which in this day and age should be thrown away with both hands. Posted by Anonymous to Evergreen Essays at 9:24 AM, February 20, 2008

Kristol is a slimeball psycho-path. There is an excellent demolition of him and his toxic politics at TomDispatch. Posted by Anonymous to Savitri Era Political Action at 9:35 AM, February 20, 2008
