>>7320236 This is the result of the detrimental divide between what is now philosophy [which splits into analytic supposedly close to science and continental/phenomenology which is posited to be far form science] and what is now physics [which splits into theoretical physics and experimental physics] This is why the rationalism-realism is the default stance wherein the students leaving the university have faith. These students hardly question this faith until late in their careers, and, for the few who question their stances, generally, when they reconsider, it goes either into scepticism, or into pathetic chatting on fields such as philosophy and theology that they do not master at all, especially when they go in the entertainment industry in doing conferences, selling books and documentaries... the same applies to biology thanks to the trendy mechanism [not theory] of the evolution. Many do not reflect on what they say and happily claim that, for instance, we are on earth to spread our genes.
the divide is about reason/imagination and practise. Since the antiquity, the philosophy is the activity of the philosophers, those who are not sage, but those who love the sophia in starting to wonder, in ontology, “why the things are such they are?”, and certainly more important, those who practise the sophia via the praxis. From the greek perspectives, the philosophy is the activity which is the ethos, to live the good life, as we go along our exploration of the truths, from the logic, of the knowledge, through the episteme, typically, throughout the reflexivity, once we have perceived our belonging to the world.
>>7320360 point is that popular perception of the intellectual terrain has significant lag. postmodernism is something you read about all the time in surface-level publications, but hasn't been a significant or unified intellectual movement for quite a bit.
If you want some useless cutting-edge bullshit, look into object-oriented ontology
>>7321692 There are no traditional marxists left in Academia. Frankfrut school admitted that the entire proletairat/bourgeoisie is a stupid concept. Post-structuralist philosophers also ruined Karl Marx worship forever by showing we can never know the true intention of an author. So even the left admits that Marx is dead.
Marxism as Karl Marx envisioned it is no more, save for a handful of college kids and teenagers who will never take his ideas beyond buying a t-shirt and complaining on twitter.
>>7321855 So if I buy a single share I suddenly change from proletariat to bourgeoisie? Even if the share is worth a nominal amount? Owning a single penny of stock changes everything? You can't possibly think this. No intelligent person can.
>>7321902 no, proles and bourgies and social categories, not individual ones. their ontology is social, not personal.
Also as social categories they were used to describe Europe in the mid 1800's, when they were relatively useful. Nowadays class is different, and you have a massive bureaucratic class that can't really fit easily into the old categories.
>>7320236 Because continental philosophy is a 'festival of anti-realism.' From there you can only start from the self or Being, which exists firstly and primarily as a social relation to Others and Big Others.

>>7321668 >>7321428 I wish those thinkers would learn to explain concepts more clearly. I'm fascinated by it, but I've been too spoiled by the computer science world to have the patience for all that muddy, associative speculation.
The time for speculation concerning the thing-in-itself is over. Man has become conscious of the fact that the world in which he thinks and acts, in which he is constituted is a product of social, sensuous human activity.
