Why Modern Philosophy Is Dead & The 40(80) Hours That Killed It.

Hey,hey People,

First off, let me tell the know-it-all types out there this.

*This member of my dear Proletariat not only has a deespyeep philosphical soul inside his Gen-X wrapper, he has also been classical-ly educated on the subject matter.

I.E. Let’s go toe-to-toe on everything philo- from Immanuel Kant 2 Herbert Marcuse to (my FAV modern philosopher)

Jean Baudrillard!

Feeling🐸 froggy,Punk?;)

Now, I’m not so sure I would call Russell Brand a “modern philosopher” but hey, who am I to judge.

In the meantime, Here is a list of Philo-dude/ettes you probably should know & why:

  • GIORGIO AGAMBEN
  • Political: Two “Americas” Answered -The State of Exception,
  • POWER MAKES EXCEPTIONS OUT OF PEOPLE IT DOES NOT LIKE IN ORDER TO JUSTIFY DOING AWAY WITH THEM.

  • Also see “Necropolitics” by Achille Mbembe
  • FALGUNI SHETH:

Socio-Philo:

Is Race A Biological Category or A Social Construct?,

Read-Towards A Political Philosophy of Race .

  • BERYS GAUT:

Uniting-Philo:The Creator of CREATE-ivity,Read- Emotions & Ethics
BONUS PHILOSOPHER:

Simone de Beauvoir

  • Socio-Female Existentialist: Women Throughout the Ages,The Ethics Of Ambiguitity

NOTEABLE MENTIONS:

  1. David Lewis
  2. Elizabeth Ashford**
  3. Karl Marx…yes, Karl Marx!
  4. Talia Bettcher
  5. Jeff McMahn

Q: Who the hell has the luxury time to sit around thinking about philosophy? I’ve got food to put on the table & diapers to buy?!?!

A: Good question & you are 100% right! Very few,maybe 1 or 2, have ever been able to dedicate themselves & deliver fully, their soul-passion while still being anchored to wage-slave-dom.

Clearly, it is damn near impossible to “think outside the box” when we are so entire-ly ruled by one.

Q: Does that mean there aren’t any Proletariat philosophers out there?

A: Of course not. Chances are,though, we will never ever hear from them.😯

<3,
