Re: Postcards:

“Although viewed as political opposites, the two movements had surprising overlap. Contrary to the widespread belief that Occupy Wall Street shilled for the Democratic Party, only 27 percent of Occupy Wall Street demonstrators were Democrats. Seventy percent were Independents. The Tea Party, in turn...

Re: Children, Intuitive Knowledge & Philosophy

Dear Editor: For me, it was a productive coincidence that you published a news article on research done by Beissert and Hasselhorn on intelligence and moral development (research that shows there is no correlation) and Maria daVenza Tillmanns’ “Children, Intuitive Knowledge, and Philosophy” in the s...

Re: Children, Intuitive Knowledge & Philosophy

This is the first draft to my letter to the editor on this article: Dear Editor: By some cosmic coincidence in issue 119, you published, in the news section, research done by Beissert and Hasselhorn on intelligence and moral development that more or less undermines Maria daVenza Tillmanns’ agenda in...

Re: Children, Intuitive Knowledge & Philosophy

Now (in the short window I have (I would like to compare two quotes from Tillmanns’ article and note the overlap with post-structuralist and postmodern thought. “In I and Thou (1923), existentialist philosopher and scholar Martin Buber wrote, “It is simply not the case that the child first perceives...

Re: Children, Intuitive Knowledge & Philosophy

"Children aren’t the only ones who have a total engagement with the world. Artists, for example, rely on the knowledge that originates from a total engagement and openness, to which they give expression through their art. But for many people, intuitive knowledge is gradually replaced by the structur...

Re: Children, Intuitive Knowledge & Philosophy

“We need to foster and nourish the ‘inborn Thou’ by strengthening children’s relations to the world around them and other people. The only way to restore the inborn Thou to our society is to allow children to develop their intuitive knowledge by allowing them full reign to their imaginations in the ...

Re: Deleuze Studies:

Difference, Repetition, Ball Joints, and Other Drivers: “Thus we make things the same, even the most simple things, against the background that they could be very different (I can't believe the bolt failed . . .). So each bolt, each simple same thing, matters because it carries with it the possibili...

Re: Deleuze Studies:

“There are of course, many other important works that have appeared in recent years, but I will focus on these because they take Difference and Repetition as one of their principal sources. Each of these studies takes the book in different directions to mine, demonstrating the limitations of my sele...

Re: Deleuze Studies:

One of the things that comes up in James Williams secondary text on Difference and Repetition is Deleuze’s concept of the block. And if I’m reading it right, it has to do with the subject’s (the place where thoughts take place (finite capabilities in the face of the infinite. It comes down to the li...

Re: Postcards:

“In his consideration of law and repetition in the introduction to Difference and Repetition, Deleuze is not primarily concerned with laws of nature but with moral laws that are based on acts meant to be independent of laws of nature. His target is not science but a Kantian approach to morality.” -W...

Re: Deleuze Studies:

Today was a kind of Sartre day. To quote an entry from Nausea: Today: nothing: existed I mean it: I got nothing from today’s study point at the library.
