After Kant (1)

This. The latent thetic power of everybody for coping and engaging with-in reality.

I agree with the utility of giving up the idea that philosophy is a privileged kind of reasoning with its own special concepts. Theory as praxis indeed requires mutation into active styles of thinking “through topics, amid multifarious contexts of unknowing”.

I try to practice my own “feral philosophy” in the wild world that attempts to actively practice thinking that oscillates between affirmative decision activation and rigorously skeptical modes of inquiry.

This was a nice reminder.

Kant, like many philosophers, is notoriously difficult to read. Some people blame his proclivity for pedantic exuberance. That’s not totally inaccurate, but for me, the specific cause of the difficulty in my reading of Kant is that he is so wrong, more specifically, so incapable and comprised. It reminds me that, in British English, Kant and “Can’t” are homophones.

  1. don’t think that the existentialists (especially Nietzsche) were very interested in practicing “the way of wisdom” but I’ve always enjoyed your own project and hope to see more of it as you get a chance to help us walk on the wild side.

  2. One might say Kant and the Stoics ruined philosophy by removing it from everyday life and then attempted to philosplain it back to everyday life. The lumpenphilosophie Heidegger disparaged. In doing so, he created a new class of heirophants who dispensed what passed for wisdom. The rough grouping of existentials listed asked philosophy to examine itself and found what answers there were, lacking. I would point out that only Kant’s last book is impossible to understand, perhaps because it is not understandable.
