Why do STEMlords and fedora-tippers love this word?
It's really challenging to read some philosophers because they're often grasping at ideas and formulations that have not yet been formulated. The idiots who call them obscurantists are actually presupposing that they already know the foreign use of language that the philosopher is attempting, that they "get" the ideas, they just want it expressed already in their own language. It's conceited as fuck.
Hegel is God general.
In 1996, Alan Sokal, a physicist, grew tired of the "Science Wars". Postmodernists would throw out dribble about how scientific discovery was inherently racist, and mathematics was created by the bourgeoise to oppress women. Finally, "academics" called for the restraining of scientific discovery such that it fit with proper political doctrine. Similar to Lysenko in Soviet Russia, these "academics" could spew out dribble (Because that's all it was) faster than actual scientists and thinkers could put out factual analysis.
So Sokal published...

Yes we know about this. And you know what. I've actually read a book by the guy that published it and he specifically says the publicity stunt should not be used to discredit philosophy as a whole or even discredited post-modernism as a whole.
But you not only fail to understand the point of the stunt you got extra stupid and think this retroactively invalidates Hegel, a man who was 100 years before Post-modernism even existed as a word.
STEMfags are fucking retarded.
Evola/Traditionalist thread all politics aside. Purely from a spiritual/metaphysical perspective. Any other traditionalists out there? Pic related
Why is Ebola associated with Christianity when he agreed with Nietzsche about the religion. He even borrows Nietzsche's vocabulary "aristocratic soul". Wasn't Evola's philosophy trying to take Nietzsche and put it into a pagan-spirtual form?
seriously, WTF happened? How did the Russians get BTFO so hard?
And what was Roosevelt's interest in putting a stop to it?

What amount of truth is there behind the S.S. being full of bloodthirsty monsters, as opposed to the Wehrmacht who were ordinary and sometimes very honorable soldiers that is depicted occasionally in Hollywood?
BERLIN: A guilt-ridden account of an ordinary German soldier's experiences in World War two is countering a recent trend among historians to portray Germans as victims of the war.
Willy Peter Reese, an infantryman who fought on the Russian front and died in 1944 aged 23, kept a diary of how German soldiers killed scores of prisoners of war, committed rape, threw pregnant women and children out of their homes and stole food.
As the fighting wore on, indifference undermined the soldiers' discipline. ''Most numbed themselves with superficiality,...

Cool secret police practises thread. Pic related is a Stasi letter reglueing machine designed so that pre-read letters look undisturbed.
Man I wish I had something to add to this thread so it could live on. Perhaps your thread was too far ahead of its time. I hope I live to see the day when a thread like this grows to be epic bread
Stasi was GOAT at psychological terror, was there ever any organization that came even close to what they did? Everyone always seemed to use just physical torture.
I remember visiting one of their prisons/interrogation stations and the tour guide would tell us all kinds of stories, like how they'd intentionally make incomprehensible "bureaucratic" sounding nonsense as accusation so the accused didn't even understand what the fuck was going on and only get more confused/intimidated.
Bridge of Spies made the East Germans look a lot more dickish than the Russians. The Russians in the movie did things, but they always had a point. The Stasi were just pointlessly cruel.
What are /his/ thoughts?
When Greece became independent from the Ottomans, was there anyone (politically important/relevant) calling for the restoration of the Roman Empire? Or did everyone agree on creating a new Greek state?
Greeks still called themselves Romans up to about the 1980s, some older people still refer to themselves as Romans to this day. So why was their monarch titled the King of the Hellenes, and not of the Romaioi?
They just wanted Greece.
When you say they called themselves Romans, they weren't really calling themselves Romans, it was just the word for themselves, it had long since lost the direct meaning of Roman. When i say im English i don't mean im an Angle from north Germany.
First battle of the Greek war of independence was in Romania, the war grew out of an effort to restore the whole Byzantine Empire, they wanted to grab Constantinople as late as WWI. But they failed, so "Greece" it was.
Do you think people of very old times had developed advanced civilisations and destroyed themselves with wars thereby causing reboot of humanity?
