timeimmemorial: “So, then, science and technology remove the distinction upon which morals are based?” Latour asks. And Serres responds by noting that now we no longer have to ask “the Cartesian question: How can we dominate the world?” We are forced to answer a different question: “How can we dominate our dominion; how can we master our own mastery?” […] Ethics, as Derrida will also tell you,...

aporianonymous: ‘Kant, for example, is the perfect incarnation of false critique: that’s why he fascinates me. But when you’re facing such a work of genius, there’s no point saying you disagree. First you have to know how to admire; you have to rediscover the problems he poses, his particular machinery. It is through admiration that you will come to know genuine critique. The mania of people...

autochthones: I still really don’t understand Heidegger’s treatment of anxiety and how that’s supposed to actually be contiguous with anxiety as experienced There are plenty of contiguities in his work that I have trouble seeing, but his descriptions of anxiety have always had an immediate resonance for me. Are there any particular themes in his treatment of it you find problematic?
