A new Religion and a Party centred around Sri Aurobindo

Tusar Nath Mohapatra at Savitri Era - 1 week ago
Savitri Era Party ‏@SavitriEraParty I am promoting and campaigning for Savitri Era Religion and Savitri Era Party over the Internet, for the last several years. Most political parties in India are running on religious mode of adherence and hence a party around Sri Aurobindo will have to embrace the same. The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have prepared perfect models of living together in a miniature format which need to be applied in larger habitats. Hindutva enthusiasts don't realise it fully at the moment but The Mother & Sri Aurobindo have radically changed the religion scene in India. @ave... more »

Religious Difference in a Secular Age: A Minority Report—An introduction

Saba Mahmood at The Immanent Frame - 4 days ago
[image: Saba Mahmood | Religious Difference in a Secular Age: A Minority Report]It is no exaggeration to say that the religious diversity that characterized the Middle East for centuries is in precipitous decline. The reasons for this are multiple, including civil wars that have ravaged Iraq, Syria, and Libya; territorial expansion of militant Islamist groups (like ISIS); and steady erosion of political and civil rights in the region. The US invasion of Iraq and subsequent intervention in Libya have left wide swaths of the Middle East in utter disarray and brought the plight of reli... more »

Material Undecidability

larvalsubjects at Larval Subjects . - 2 days ago
For about two years I barely wrote. Indeed, during this time I barely read as well. You can even date this shift on the blog. Prior to this shift I was writing about a blog post a day and then suddenly there was a precipitous drop where I would go days and weeks without writing […]

The Horror of Materialism

larvalsubjects at Larval Subjects . - 1 week ago
With his declaration of the identity of being and thinking Parmenides inaugurates one of the central themes and aspirations of Western philosophy: absolute knowledge. It is this that Heidegger and Derrida are referring to when they speak of the “philosophy of presence”. Being that is identical to thinking will be maximally present. It will present […]

One and Two: Politics, Governance, and Antagonism

larvalsubjects at Larval Subjects . - 3 days ago
Perhaps it could be said that politics is that which occurs at that precise moment that we learn to count to Two. If this were the case, then it would follow that not everything is political. Everything can become political, but politics is something is something that must be made to be. When is it […]

Philosophy and the Stranger

larvalsubjects at Larval Subjects . - 3 days ago
I won’t lie. It’s very likely that philosophy makes us worse. Morrison said that people are strange when you’re a stranger. Philosophy does something far worse. It makes you a stranger to everything and, above all, a stranger to that which is most obvious. It makes everything strange, mysterious. Philosophy problematizes. We come to it […]
