“Quite Unintelligible,” Derrida’s Scathing Criticism from a Teacher http://ow.ly/2XfOgj
Making the rounds on social media today is an essay that then-student Jacques Derrida had written in English class entitled "Shakespeare's Idea of Kingship." While Derrida's writing as a student may interest many, his teacher's remarks are drawing far more attention. Click to enlarge. "In this essay you seem to be constantly on the verge of something interesting," the unknown grader wrote, "but, somewhat, you always fail to explain it clearly. A...

What philosopher is most likely to ruin a sporting event? In the Elite 8 of sports ruiners, Michel Foucault knocked out Gilles Deleuze. Friedrich Nietzsche willed his way to victory over Karl Marx, Arthur Schopenhauer's misanthropy triumphed over G.W.F. Hegel, and Martin Heidegger claimed an easy victory over the Scranton Strangler Louis Althusser. Now only four philosophers are left. Vote below. http://polldaddy.com/poll/8776672/ http://polldad...

Philosopher March Madness: Round of 32 - Who is most likely to ruin a sporting event? http://ow.ly/2WjhI7
In the round of 64, over 10,000 votes were cast to determine the pressing question "What philosopher is most likely to ruin a sporting event?" Including, but not limited to, March Madness of course. Is it Diogenes, who rushes the field, rambling “I’m looking for an honest man!” while violently shaking Bill Belichick? Can that compare to the $8 hot dog ruined by Jacques Lacan who reminds you “the phallus is in the bun,” or Karl Marx’s multiple ab...

March Madness: Most Likely to Ruin a Sporting Event - Last year, we investigated one of the most pressing questions of our day, namely, who is the most overrated philosopher of them all? You all voted and declared anarchist, linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky the overrated champion over Adam Smith. And while some petite bourgeois imposters have sprung about, we’ve decided to examine another fascinating question. … Continue reading March Madness: Most Likely to Ruin a... http://ow.ly/2W3mSn
Last year, we investigated one of the most pressing questions of our day, namely, who is the most overrated philosopher of them all? You all voted and declared anarchist, linguist and philosopher Noam Chomsky the overrated champion over Adam Smith. And while some petite bourgeois imposters have sprung about, we've decided to examine another fascinating question. Of philosophy's many personalities, which is most likely to ruin a sporting event? Is...

Philosopher March Madness: The Championship - Heidegger vs. Nietzsche. http://ow.ly/2X15nj
In the Final Four, Friedrich Nietzsche narrowly beat Michel Foucault by 61 votes, and Martin Heidegger robbed Arthur Schopenhauer of his Being-in-This-Bracket by 78 votes. Click to enlarge.   Before anybody righteously decries that it is, in fact, April - I will point them to the fact (that I have recently discovered) that March Madness ends tonight -- and somehow poststructuralism gets derided for making no sense. So who is more likely to ruin ...

Who is more likely to ruin a sporting event? In the Bitter 16,  Arthur Schopenhauer beat out a simulacra of Jean Baudrillard, Michel Foucault beat out Jacques Derrida and Gilles Deleuze beat out colleague Felix Guattari. We're left with the following match-ups: Foucault vs Deleuze. Nietzsche vs Marx. Hegel vs Schopenhauer. Heidegger vs Althusser.

Philosopher March Madness: The Bitter 16 - In the Round of 32, Critical-Theory fans obliterated my faith in them and humanity. Among the travesties: Ayn Rand lost to Gilles Deleuze and Diogenes lost to Jacques Derrida (perhaps C-T readers are more comfortable with public masturbation than intellectual masturbation). The good news: Former overrated champion Noam Chomsky was knocked out by Martin Heidegger (his friends, after all, ruined the 1936 Olympics) and Jean Baudri... http://ow.ly/2WE1li

The Musical Equivalent of a “Crime in the Moral World,” the Music of Friedrich Nietzsche http://ow.ly/2W9LZ4
Friedrich Nietzsche showed an interest in music from a young age, composing pieces for piano, orchestras and choirs. In his teens, he spent his summers leading "a small music and literature club named 'Germania,'" and was exposed to Richard Wagner's music through it. Above is Nietzsche's "Manfred Meditation," a piano piece written for four hands. It is also subject to one of the most scathing reviews Nietzsche ever received in his lifetime. Nietz...
