Re: What is Emotion?

I did state the foundation. My 25c. What's wrong with what I wrote? Without foundation my posts are out of nowhere. But my foundation is your posts. Your foundation are also your posts which are really not foundation at all. When you write, "psychology is the best explanator currently available", t...

Re: Think positive

I'm having a rather Jordan Peterson view on this. The shit is out there and keeps coming. There are no positive opposite of "catastrophy", most positive things we have to create for ourselves(Well, nature in May in Scandinavia is definitely a plus). But we have to make the world a good place.

Re: What is Emotion?

Some of you guys seem to take this thread as a platform for a Nobel Prize. Keep it simple. Every Tuesday, after a hard days work I do HIIT(google it up) on my trainer bike, fill up a bath in my tub and lie there for a couple of hours. First hour I listen to a online Book (currently Pride & Predjudi...

Psychoanalysis connection with politics

Both Slavoj Zizek, being a fan of Lacan and Jordan Peterson, being a fan of Jung both makes a big case of psychoanalysis as well as modern politics. And there seem to be some connection there. In the interview in PN with Anja Steinbauer Zizek even suggests re-reading of Hegel and the boys with psych...

Re: Swedish Prisons and Decapitation Fetish

I have learned one thing from driving in many countries in the world - The traffic works in every country. But if you come from one place and end up on another place and watch the traffic it looks like chaos. You should be hesitant to judge the ways of another country. I live in Sweden, and my roots...

Re: Slavoj Žižek

He is most amusing with his "s"-es, his "so on"'s, with pulling his nose and shirt all the time. But he is also one of the great, what I would call, Metaphysicians of this time. He dare to give a scolared(is that the english word?) man's view on things that happens in the world. He's a philosopher o...

Re: Rediscovering Plato’s Vision

Nick and John - Reading your discussion on "how to understand something", I want to take the examples of when Timaios discusses what a person is made up of, triangles of fire and what not, versus the discussion Platon has in numerous dialogues about what kind of state is the best, versus his discuss...

Re: Rediscovering Plato’s Vision

For those of you that have read Plato's dialogues: Do you agree with the view of the article, that the dialogue participants kind of wanted to find a holistic, rationalistic view of like everything? Floating around in a metaphysic view of the world. I do not agree. The dialogues have to be read in t...

Re: Acceptable In Amsterdam

Quite interesting article. We up here are supposed to be tolerant and yes, broadly we are. But: In the article there is a ctitation from Goethe that suggests that tolerance should only be a temporary attiitude. And that you through discussions should after a while kind of "like" the thing that you o...

Re: Are People Rational?

I would say that most people are somewhat rational, myself included. I cannot say what will bias by decisions as good as I will be able to in 10 years, looking back. When I read the article I was thinking of mr Russell himself writing the Western History around 1944. He wasn't exactly keen on Nietzs...

Re: All Hail Free Market Capitalism!

Your knowledge of economics is less than that of an average third-grader. For one thing, you don't even know what capitalism is. Capitalism is not a system of free-markets. It is a system of free-markets along with a set of laws, regulations, government institutions, etc., that give it a structure....
