"Congratulations to Subba's ongoing research and writing to unravel aspects of history via his philosophy of fearism, his fearist lens, and his methodology of dephilosophy. I have not followed all his new arguments for some years, but I know he has…"
Fear of a spectre is the beginning of whole communism. 1st sentence, in 'The Communist Manifesto' Karl Marx and Friedrich Engels have written, "A spectre is haunting Europe - the spectre of communism (p.3)."
As a philosopher…
"Yes, these kinds of accidents are happening different parts of world. At same time, when George Floyd accident had happened in Minnesota, in remote village of Nepal, murdered six boys in the name of caste supremacy. Naw Raj a young boy had fallen in…"
"CK, you raise good questions. And, I am like you cautious of over-reductionistic (inflationism) re: fear as the 'total' and only motivation of interest in our inquiries. I prefer to talk about an "ecology of fear" as a foundational motivational…"
"RCGC, yes, I think much could be gained by investigating Schopenhaer and Nietzsche re: fearism. I have done a few preliminary papers on Schopenhauer and fear and fearless standpoint theory: https://prism.ucalgary.ca/handle/1880/110516…"
"As you say, the rethoric "we" is something really unpleasant. I will never pretend to speak for all of humanity, I just want to find a common way with the people I dialogue with, that's my - probably not proper - use of "we". But yes, accepting…"
"The example of the periodic table is really inspiring, thank you! Probably I will use it in future, I never thought at it in this way. You're right when you talk of finding a stability while changing: never changing is not possible, and the…"
"Yes .. your slogan is astounding in a positive way.
I agree with your opinion that 'existence' is nothing but actualising freedom so as to create something good from the conditions that are already there, but not ex nihilo. Your assertion that…"
"PS, thanks for taking time to respond to my challenge. Overall, I feel a bit more clear as to your 'attitude' to knowledge and diverse philosophies and perspectives, so I feel less a conviction that you are taking or bouncing off extremes in your…"
"I hope that the slogan is astounding in a positive way!
Thank you for your answer, I think you have focused the attention on some essential truths. In my opinion, "existing" is "doing-with", i.e. actualising/incarnating one's freedom doing something…"
"It is quite an astounding idea to sloganeer as 'through the capability of freedom, man is forced to go to root ....'
Now the issue focuses on how to be capable of exercising freedom. Human life is as such ridden with instinctual compulsions like…"
"Very intersting, Desh!
I think your poit of view comes back to another anthropological and ontological level. Existentialism did not get to the real root of existence, because talking about fear means talking about an animal impulse that not only…"
"I think it is a basic idea that fear be before substance, but it is an idea that remains at the metaphysical threshold, because existence has to be taken in its entirety. Fear is indeed a basic engine but it is added to many other engines such as…"
"Thank you for your feedback! I am not sure to understand all of your points, but I'll try my best (we have also to consider that probably we use different languages, and sadly my english vocabulary is not that wide). You're right when you say that…"
"Nice reflections for us PS. I am an integralist, with great appreciation for existentialist positions (vast and varied as they are). I tend to look for corrections too in philosophie over the ages and up to today. It seems every branch of philosophy…"
