Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Transcendentals

In this podcast we investigate the Medieval notion of "transcendentals", an underlying and all pervading principle of Sacra Doctrina and philosophy of Middle Ages that was nevertheless rarely in the focus of contemporary scholarship. The doctrine of transcendentals is one of those teachings that are so common and obvious that one has trouble noticing it, similarly as we have trouble noticing air that we're breathing.

Faust Complex: Young Hegelians and the Theology of Atheism

Body of ideas brought forth in the early to mid 19th Century Germany by the group of radicals summed up under the moniker "young (or:'left') Hegelians" enacted an enormous influence on both 20th Century and our current time, in the guise of totalitarian political ideas and practices. What is somewhat neglected by interprets is the fact that Young Hegelians first and foremost were a movement inspired and even led by radical theologians; whereas contemporary public opinion on Marxism, anarchism and even Nazism tends to comprehend these movements to be as far removed from theology and metaphysics, i.e. as a political reaction to historical reality, they are originally anything but. They, in effect, stem from an attempt to liberate humanity from religion in general and Christianity in particular, based on certain peculiar ideas that are religious in themselves.

Miscellanea: Intolerance of Eternity

Immortality is not such a tall order as it may seem at the first glance. The situation in which man can claim the right to become a woman and at the same time cannot affirm his right to exist for eternity is in fact quite the recent occurrence, as we shall see in the new KT Miscellanea.

Being and Truth: How World Can be Contained in the Single Sentence

Learning philosophy does not come about solely or even primarily from reading volumes of books; sometimes it comes about from resolving not so apparent layers of meaning contained in the single sentence. In this traditional "metaphysics (even) for housewives"  podcast  we'll demonstrate just how this comes about by taking into consideration poignant formulation of truth handed to us from 13th Century: The Truth is undividedness (or "indivision") od Being and what is.

Making Manifest of What Was Hidden: Abortion and Infanticide

Recent ballyhoo about an attempt to justify "third trimester" abortion in USA provides us with ample opportunity to analyze the thing itself: to make explicit what is implicit to the act of abortion. In this video we argue that infanticide - a supposed "slippery slope" of the pro-abortion argument - is nothing but terminus, a logically explicated boundary of the abortion itself, into which abortion in the end has to resolve. We argue the point mainly from the stand point of open infanticide advocates, whom we already discussed on KT, and simple presumptions of traditional application of logic.

Power of Closed Mind

 "Open mindedness" ... such a common place epithet. Yet, as with most common place epithets it conceals a more deeper cause within it. In this podcast we'll shed some light on the fact that mind is by its very nature open and how this can become impediment when confronted with its ultimate opposite - systemic thinking; a veritable epitome of "closed mind", encompassing phenomena from political correctness to Internet mediated intellectuality seemingly opposed to this prevailing ideology of our age. We attempt to demonstrate that conflict between the open and closed mind is in effect an activity of differentiating between Intellect and Ego as metaphysical realities.

General Amnesia: On History and Intellectual Myopia

The horror of history ... there's an air of triviality in this oft repeated phrase, don't you think? Granted that it is not trivial or that we should address even trivialities if we want our thinking to have serious consequences, could we counter its unspoken conclusion of "let's be done with it, then" with the question: "if the life is problem to us, should we solve it by dying?" In this article by the head of the KT's Black Sea Fleet Mihai Marinescu we are presented with the nuanced and definite negative answer to this question.
