"Durante a #ditadura #militar os #milicos ordenaram que se retirasse a #filosofia e a #sociologia no ensino dos jovens. Os inimigos do pensamento sabem muito bem que nada há de “inútil” nessas disciplinas.
@lubashivaya Mas eles interferiram também na outra ponta do #ensino, retirando #Nietzsche e #Marx como tema para ingresso nas Pós-Graduações de #filosofia.

O caráter “subversivo” da filosofia é trabalhado muito bem no #curta 📽 “Meu amigo Nietzsche”.
@lubashivaya O #filme mostra a amizade que nasce entre uma #criança e o #filósofo, entre a criança e a descoberta do que há de mais potente nela mesma.

Não por acaso, a “criança” é uma das personagens mais importantes no pensamento de #Nietzsche, que dizia poder o #homem passar por #três

#EnFinirAvecNietzsche [THREAD]
1️⃣ Voici venu le temps de #DémonterNietzsche à coups de 🔨 (philosophique).
Que ce #phallusophe protofasciste enseigné avec des trémolos dans les moustaches apparaisse pour ce qu’il est : un gourou d’extrême-droite !...👇
2️⃣ #Nietzsche, comme plus tard #Heidegger, fantasme son succès futur par et pour un public imaginé plus perméable à ses délires. Comme le nazi de Fribourg, il mise sur sa mégalomanie et sa mystagogie pour polluer l’esprit de ses futurs disciples, son œuvre est taillée pour ça. 👇 Image
3️⃣ Comme encore #Heidegger après lui, et les leaders nazis, #Nietzsche a la « culture » en haine, celle de l’humanisme et de la solidarité – trop « chrétienne », trop peu virile. « Nos femmelettes minées par la culture et l’hystérie... » : ainsi parlait le #phallusophe !... 👇 ImageImage

#Nietzsche est une farce qui a gourouïsé des générations d’intellectuels. Je me souviens de Patrick Wotling, à l’ENS et Paris 4, qui faisait tout pour lui ressembler physiquement et transformait obsessionnellement la « pensée » de son Idole en système. Non mais quels clowns ! 🤡 Image
— Quelle idée reçue aimeriez-vous voir disparaître définitivement quant à #Nietzsche ?
Patrick Wotling — « Aucune. Il est dans la nature du type de réflexions que construit Nietzsche qu’il suscite des préjugés et des idées reçues. »
Bonjour la #philosophie ! 🤡

Which philosopher-signaling term/s are most likely to instead reveal the opposite? #philosophy

Buckle in. A thread.
(It’s OK to unbuckle. That was just clickbait.)
OK, back to question.

A) Using the term “epistemology” where not necessary. This greatly increases the chances of misusing it and becoming a “Wittgenstein signaling device”

B) Abusing the term “ontology.” Though only necessary to look up meaning once a week or so on Google, and the definition actually helps, prone to Wittgensteining also.

This is the first line in my song.

A man cannot become a woman
Anymore than a man can become a bat.

Here are some notes on Nietzsche’s idea of “becoming” and how it was co-opted by transgender activists.

On #Nietzsche, Transgenderism, Detransition
“How One Becomes What One Is.”

This was the subtitle of a book written by Friedrich Nietzsche called – “Ecce Homo” – which means: – “Behold the Man.”
It was the Roman governor Pontius Pilate who said – “Behold the Man!” – as Jesus, appearing positively ungodlike, capped with a crown of thorns, beaten, battered and abused, was dragged out before a crowd and berated with howls of execration as he carried the cross to Golgotha.

The Egyptian philosopher ʿAbd al-Rahman al-Badawi (1917-2002) is perhaps one of the most underrated thinkers of #ContemporaryArabThought - a major #Heideggerian_existentialist #Sufism and #IslamicPhilosophy specialist who studied at Fuad I (later #Cairo) University 1/
Many of us who study #IslamicThought know him for his editions of #ArabicAristotle #ArabicPlato #ArabicPlotinus as well as editions of the work of #Avicenna #IbnSabin #SiwanalHikma and others - without his efforts we would not have editions of the #PlotinianaArabica 2/
In the 1930s he studied in Cairo and obtained his PhD in 1944 supervised by #AlexandreKoyré (1892-1964) on the notion of 'existential time' that engages with #Heidegger - this like his other early works was published by #DaralNahdaalMisriya 3/

In defense of Elitism

By @the_howling_void)

As if it required a defense.

Make no mistake, the zealotry of “political correctness” is a war on “factual correctness.”
When truths offend self-esteem, there is a sizable caucus that sets about the task of abolishing #Truth with a capitol T.

Nothing is better than anything else if all truths are relative
Thinkers as diverse as hippyish psychonaut #TerenceMcKenna, contrarian political journalist #ChristopherHitchens, and Friedrich #Nietzsche all identified relativism as the great threat to the human endeavor

Today is the 79th #birthday of #German economist and writer Roland Baader(1940-2012), a proponent of the #AustrianSchool of #economics, an indefatigable defender of #liberalism and prophet of the dangers of creeping #socialism. In a sense, a secular Martin #Luther.
Under hashtags of the form #MDHP-𝑛 I will publish my translation of the following #obituary for Baader:
Gerd Habermann: 𝘔𝘪𝘵 𝘥𝘦𝘮 𝘏𝘢𝘮𝘮𝘦𝘳 𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘭𝘰𝘴𝘰𝘱𝘩𝘪𝘦𝘳𝘦𝘯.
Junge Freiheit Nr.3/12 (2012-01-13)
(published in pdf-form in…)
..The title of the above newspaper article has no DIRECT relation to Baader's work, rather is an #allusion to a subtitle of a book by Friedrich #Nietzsche (1844-1900), written when Nietzsche was at the verge of mentally collapsing. (Nietzsche was incapacitated from1889 onwards).
