2. If philosophy is still a Wissenschaft, then it should be possible for philosophy papers to end up on Retraction Watch
Collapsing Geisteswissenschaft and Naturwissenschaft. I'm waiting for a Retraction Watch for theology. No one argues over the rankings of engineering schools.

Henry Farrell has My Bloody Valentine, so...

"Deeper, deeper, into the corner. We're almost there..."

Technocracy ends in psychosis. It always has.
responding to comments:
"Behind the chiliasm of modern man, is the megalomania of self-infinitization."
Specifically, and obviously, Kubrick
For added effect -Full Ultra Doom™ Mode- play both videos simultaneously.

    Okay. First Q: "technocracy ends in psychosis": not immediately obvious to me that that's right. How is that the summary of what went before?

    Y'know, there's no official retraction watch for theology, but there are plenty of first-hand memoirs of retraction - they don't count?

  2. Haven't you ever read Lewis Carroll? Formal logic is a rabbit hole.
    Watch the video; listen to the beat. Repeat after me: pattern is warmth.... pattern is warmth... pattern is warmth.

    Imagined Communities of the dance floor.

    "Behind the chiliasm of modem man, is the megalomania of self-infinitization."
    Go ahead, call me Klaus Gnomi
    "there's no official retraction watch for theology." Don't talk to me, dude. Talk to Jon Elster.
