If Marx proceeds to base his views upon the view in the text I'm reading that is supposedly his of the supposed brilliance of philosophical materialism, I may have already found his undoing (by finding a key flaw in the latter). *scratches head* It can't be that easy. #philosophy #marxism
I'm reading only texts on a Marxist website, btw.
This topic might be a little out there for some folks, but I'd love to hear some new voices in the conversation.
Torus, Time-Space, and Themes of History: A Doughnutology?
I'd count the #Zarathustra as fiction, bad fiction at that one. #Nietzsche's writings helped bring forth the Third Reich.
Personally I find reading Nietzsche unbearable, it is really bad #obscurantist #german #philosophy.
@zatnosk Not really, though it could definitely integrate #econ. It's more of a general tool for #philosophy, but I'm interested in how it could help the #business world, and the world in general as a result.
I still haven't found much in the way of the same thing, but I have found some business world essays that all but lay the groundwork for such a tool being seen as valuable. #ideas
This goes along with an idea I've wondered about for a while: do we only allow ourselves to think with regards to humanity, decency, liberty, or grace in times of wealth and prosperity? In times of rationing, do we grab for a greater — colder — rationality? #economics #philosophy #ethics

#showerthought: the people who call themselves "red-pillers" should instead be called blue-pillers.
Taking the red pill means accepting the burden of reality and committing to making the world a better place.
These people want to return to living in a fantasy where they're the only people who matter, it's the colorblind '90s forever, and nothing ever changes.
I need some #philosophy tips.
To enter into University, I need to choose a philosophical text (or text fragment) of 5 pages max. Then I need to write about what the text means, why the text interests me, and how the text says something about how I view philosophy.
Does anyone know any good short philosophical texts or text fragments? (Please don't suggest Kant)
