"Kant's philosophy is a high one ... the march of God in the world, that is what the state is."   Eduard Gans, Berlin, 1833

AMERICAN IDEALISM: THE NEW HEGELIAN ORTHODOXY

Modern irrationalism,  in order to validate pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism, squares the lecture notes and the great works published by Hegel in his lifetime:

"The Meiner Verlag series of Hegel Vorlesungen, commencing in 1983, includes volumes that remedy drawbacks of the Werke volumes on these lectures-only topics; they distinguish the lecture series on the same topics in different years, so that there is now a more faithful representation available of what Hegel himself actually said in a given series, and how his thought, albeit not finalized, had developed or changed over time."
Robert F. Brown, editor, Lectures on the Philosophy of Art, Oxford, 2014.

Pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism thus square Kant and Hegel in order to prove that Hegel's system is flawed: Irrationalism thus perverts the history of modern philosophy and modern Europe, especially that of the early 20th century.

Pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism are therefore the political and economic masks of modern European Raison d'Etat. 

One drawback will never be remedied: The Lecture are not authoritative and therefore useless in the exact determination of the ultimate worth of genuine Hegelianism.

Today we see the results of 20th century political and economic irrationalism in the disintegration of modernity and its inferior ruling classes.

The world historical ground of modernity is thus utterly swept-away in the rise of Globalism and the superior ruling class.

The ship of modernity is sinking and the irrationalists are going down ...

"The ultimate ground of logic is the realm of truth without veil, the system of pure reason, the world of pure thought."
HEGEL, 1812

MARTIN HEIDEGGER & MODERN IRRATIONALISM

"The most beautiful part of it is that I am beginning
a c t u a l l y   t o   l o v e   K a n t.   I am grateful that fate has kept me from spoiling Kant and Hegel ..."
MARTIN HEIDEGGER, 1925

"Kant's  C r i t i q u e   o f   P u r e   R e a s o n
is among those philosophical works which daily become inexhaustible anew ..." HEIDEGGER

*What does 20th century modern European political and economic irrationalism tell us about the critical path of criticism, especially in the critiques of Western civilisation by Lenin, Hitler, Stalin and Mao ?

ADORNO & MODERN IRRATIONALISM

"Myth is already enlightenment, and enlightenment reverts to mythology ... Mythology itself set in motion the endless process of enlightenment by which, with ineluctable necessity, every definite theoretical view is subjected to the annihilating criticism that it is only a belief, until even the concepts of mind, truth, and, indeed, enlightenment itself have been reduced to animistic magic."
ADORNO & HORKHEIMER, 1940-1950

*These are some of the most brilliant European minds that confronted Lenin, Stalin, Hitler and Mao: Were they part of the solution or part of the problem?

NOAM CHOMSKY & MODERN IRRATIONALISM

"Exploring further, we reach the great thinker who discoursed authoritatively on the same topics in his Lectures On Philosophy of History a half century later in 1830, as we approach what he called the final phase of world history, when spirit reaches its full maturity and strength in the German world (German includes England). Speaking from these lofty heights, Hegel explains that native America was physically and psychically powerless so that it must expire as soon as spirit approached it, hence the aborigines gradually vanished at the breath of European activity. According to him [Hegel], they were inferior even to the Negroes, whose character has nothing harmonious with humanity. Entirely lacking in moral sentiments they practise polygamy so as to have many children to sell into slavery, which is a benevolent institution, enabling them to become participant in a higher morality and the culture connected with it. They have such contempt of humanity, he [Hegel] said, that they allow themselves to be shot down by thousands in war with Europeans. 'Life has a value only when it has something valuable as its object, which is a thought beyond the grasp of creatures who are at the level of a mere thing, an object of no value.' Such thoughts persist right to the present day ... Hegel lectured on the psychic disorders that caused the natives to expire as spirit approached."
NOAM CHOMSKY [LECTURE TRANSCRIPT]

"The Kantian philosophy thus serves as a cushion for intellectual indolence which soothes itself with the conviction that everything is already proved and settled." HEGEL

Modern irrationalism, in order to validate pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism, squares the lecture notes and the great works published by Hegel in his lifetime.

Pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism thus squares Kant and Hegel in order to prove that Hegel's system is flawed: Noam Chomsky and American Irrationalism thus pervert the history of modern philosophy and modern Europe, especially that of the early 20th century.

Pseudo-Hegelianism and anti-Hegelianism are therefore the political and economic masks of modern European Raison d'Etat:

"In the 20th century upwards of 500 million human beings were slaughtered in the contagion of modern political and economic satanism, more than in all the historical periods combined. Many hundreds of millions more were utterly destroyed by the most barbaric slavery ever recorded in the world. This is the verdict of exact historiography and history."
CHRISTOPHER RICHARD WADE DETTLING, 2015-2016

One drawback will never be remedied: The Lectures are not authoritative and therefore useless in the exact determination of the ultimate worth of genuine Hegelianism.

"The ultimate ground of logic is the realm of truth without veil, the system of pure reason and world of pure thought."

BERTRAND RUSSELL & THE FRENCH REVOLUTION

"We  m i g h t  live to see another French Revolution, perhaps even more glorious than the first, leaving Social Democracy to try one of the greatest and most crucial experiments in political history."

Bertrand Russell, German Social Democracy: Six Lectures, London and New York, Longmans, Green & Company, 1896

*Did Bertrand Russell get his revolution in the 20th century, after all ?

*Were the struggles between monarchism and republicanism, in the clash between France and Germany, the death throes of European modernity ?

*After the revolution of "Democracy" in modern Europe, did the House of Russell return to the British throne ?

*Did Lord Russell in the end finally understand the modern world was gone forever, as he turned against Americanism ?

*Did old Bertie ever come to realise the role he had played in the "Last Act of Modernity" ?

*In the 21st century, do the inferior ruling classes of the earth maintain themselves in power by keeping alive the delusions of modernity ?

*Are these delusions in the arena of politics and economics named modern European political and economic irrationalism ?

*In the world of today, is the modern European political and economic distinction between Left and Right sublated into the Global distinction between Americanism and anti-Americanism ?

BERTRAND RUSSELL & MODERN IRRATIONALISM 1

"Hegel's spirit was sufficiently broad to contain, among its disciples, the most various and even contradictory tendencies. He [Hegel] was great, on the one hand by his metaphysical results, on the other by his logical method ; on the one hand as the crown of dogmatic philosophy, on the other as the founder of the dialectic, with its then revolutionary doctrine of historical development. Both these aspects of Hegel's work revolutionised thought, but in their practical bearing they diverged widely. While the practical tendency of his  m e t a p h y s i c s  was, and is, to glorify existing institutions, to see in Church and State the objective embodiment of the Absolute Idea, his  d i a l e c t i c
m e t h o d  tended to exhibit no proposition as unqualified truth, no state of things as final perfection ... Since, to Hegel, the reality of the world is only thought, the logical development of thought, from the simplest to the most complex forms, must reproduce itself in the historical development of things. The validity of this view we need not here examine ; it is sufficient to point out that Hegel, in his 'Philosophy of History,' endeavoured to exhibit the actual course of the world as following the same necessary chain of development which, as it exists in thought, forms the subject of his logic. In this development, everything implies, and even tends to become, its opposite, as son implies father ; the development of the world therefore proceeds by action and reaction, or, in technical language, by thesis and antithesis, and these become reconciled in a higher unity, the synthesis of both ... we  m i g h t  live to see another French Revolution, perhaps even more glorious than the first, leaving Social Democracy to try one of the greatest and most crucial experiments in political history."

Bertrand Russell, German Social Democracy: Six Lectures, London and New York, Longmans, Green & Company, 1896.

*Does Bertrand Russell mean by the phrase "Philosophy of History" the philosophy of history in Hegel's published works, or his philosophy of history and the "historical development" found in the Lecture Notes ? 

*Does Bertrand Russell advance a rational argument, the conclusion of which is, therefore "[Hegel] was great ... as the crown of dogmatic philosophy" ?

*Does Russell therefore prove that Hegel's dialectic is or was a "revolutionary doctrine of historical development," and that "[Hegel's]  d i a l e c t i c  m e t h o d  tended to exhibit no proposition as unqualified truth" ?

*What is the place of Bertrand Russell in 20th century world history, in the collapse of modernity and rise of Globalism ?

KARL MARX & MODERN IRRATIONALISM

"To Hegel, the life process of the human brain is the demiurgos of the real world, and the real world is only the external, phenomenal form of 'the Idea' ... it [the Hegelian Dialectic] includes in its comprehension and affirmative recognition of the existing state of things, at the same time also, the recognition of the negation of that state, of its inevitable breaking up ; because it [the Hegelian Dialectic] regards every historically-developed social form as in fluid movement, and therefore takes into account its transient nature not less than its momentary existence ; because it [the Hegelian Dialectic] lets nothing impose upon it, and is in its essence critical and revolutionary."
[KARL MARX]

*Does Karl Marx ever advance a rational argument, the conclusion of which is, therefore "to Hegel, the life process of the human brain is the demiurgos of the real world, and the real world is only the external, phenomenal form of 'the Idea'" ?

*Is the statement of Karl Marx, attributed to Hegel, that "the life process of the human brain is the demiurgos of the real world, and the real world is only the external, phenomenal form of 'the Idea,'" found in the publications of Hegel, in either the English or German editions ?

*Marx holds that "[the Hegelian Dialectic] regards every historically-developed social form as in fluid movement," but does he mean Hegel's philosophy of history, or his philosophy of history and the "historical-development" found in the Lecture Notes ? 

*Does Marx's statement, "[the Hegelian Dialectic] is in its essence critical and revolutionary," square with the teachings of Eduard Gans and the School of German Idealism that "Kant's philosophy is a high one ... the march of God in the world, that is what the state is" ?

*What exactly is the "critical and revolutionary" role of the Hegelian dialectic of Marxism in 20th century world history, in the collapse of modernity and rise of Globalism ?

"The road beyond German Idealism is very long, and many have fallen by the wayside: The sacrifices are very great ... follow the road of American Ideas and you will see the light of day."
Christopher Richard Wade Dettling, 2015

WILLIAM JAMES AND AMERICAN IRRATIONALISM

"God's life, according to Aristotle and Hegel, is pure theory. The mood of admiration is natural to rationalism. Its theories are usually optimistic, supplementing the experienced world by clean and pure ideal constructions ... Kant, and Hegel are examples of this ... Hegel wrote so abominably that I cannot understand him."
[1916]

"The Kantian philosophy thus serves as a cushion for intellectual indolence which soothes itself with the conviction that everything is already proved and settled." HEGEL

A: ?
B: ?
C: Therefore, Kant and Hegel are examples of the theories of rationalism, which are "usually optimistic, supplementing the experienced world by clean and pure ideal constructions."

DOWNFALL OF MODERNITY: RUSSELL & WHITEHEAD

These modern European gentlemen, and they were not alone, reasoned about a part of the rational world, under the delusion that it was the whole of rationality, and thus they did not reason about the world at all.

Thus they became the victims of their own folly.

Thus they fell prey to far greater reasoners ...
