LGBTIQ and the Logic of the Cuckoo’s Egg

We, philosophers, suffer because most people tend to despise our vocation, whereas some - admittedly, a minority - usurp it and tend to render it actually despicable soon enough. This makes 'being philosopher' quite an unenviable path through life. However, some things, dear reader, cannot really be comprehended without due brush with philosophy. One of those is the thing behind the LGBTIQ acronym.

Wavering Spectrum

As KT's Department For the Sewing, Dyeing and Folding the Flags Colored Spectrum to be Forcefully Trust Back into Depths of the Queer Rectum (Capitol Branch) was informed that omnipresent rainbow flag just became obsolete, we immediately reached out for the velvet gloved hand of Utikejt (pronounced, 'outekeit') to lead us out of the conundrum and explain the reason why the symbolism of the LGBTIQ flag implies the mutual destruction of the groups who mistakenly hold that politics of acronym serves their interests. In her previous post, Uti explained this by analyzing the meaning of the letters. This time around, she lays out the corresponding symbolism of the now rapidly changing flag of the LGBTIQ movement.

Miscellanea: Of Freaks and Posthumans

Posthumanism is an ontology waiting for its metaphysics. While we, still human, wait until posthumans finally come to meet their shadow, why not enrich our understanding of the posthuman, not by reading or thinking, but by leisurely browsing through pictures?

Spelling Doom

After long deliberation, and in full view of the pressing historical moment, KT Department for Research and Development of Misgendering Appliances was authorized to unleash our most lethal weapon upon the world. At the end of the deceptively uneventful summer, we present you with Croatian woman of mystery, a scourge of the small but appropriately annoying Croatian LGBTIQ regiment. Who is Utikejt? According to some a witch known to strangle potential pretentious pricks while still babies in their cribs and melting their fat into flying potion; others know her simply as a Grendel like “monster” crashing annual Pride parade to devour an occasional innocent; still others claim she is a feral girl trained in a cave for years for the single purpose of annoying activists to death. More backward among Croatian peasants still worship her as an Icon of Patriarchy and commit ritual sacrifices of virgin TERFs before her cute&terrible countenance. Be that as it may, Uti is a class A expert on the subject of LGBTQ and, in our opinion, has some definitive thoughts on the true nature of the thing behind the acronym, something we on KT were also pointing out for years, but never really literary spelled out. In the following Utikejt does just that.

Kant and the Problem of Posthumanism: An Outline, pt. I

When talking about posthumanism and its intellectual dependencies the philosophical groundwork that made it possible often tends to be neglected. In this series we'll provide an incentive to reflect upon these presuppositions by outlining the implications present in the work of premiere philosopher of modernity, Immanuel Kant, that opened up the intellectual horizon for posthumanism. In the first part we focus on Kant's groundbreaking intuitions about the nature of consciousness and its constitutive role at the heart of reality itself as both irrevocable departure from pre-modern intellectuality and necessary condition for assumptions of contemporary posthumanism. We do this by giving a broad outline of Kant's arguments from the central part of his Critique of Pure Reason - "the transcendental deduction of the categories of pure reason". In the second part we'll sketch how posthumanists rely on Kantian understanding of subject/object split for building their utopian quasi metaphysics.

An Interview on Alexander Dugin

I join J.G. Michael of Parallax Views for an Interview on Alexander Dugin's Foundations of Geopolitics. We discuss Dugin's core ideas in the light of Russian invasion of Ukraine, aggressive Russian messianic politics, the role of space in Dugin's geopolitical eschatology as constant in Russian history of foreign conquest, the notion of Russian universalism, Martin Heidegger and much more.

Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Nature

Our regular podcast spreading dark medieval lore, formerly known as wisdom, across the interwebs is back: in this episode of Basic Notions of Metaphysics we analyze classical Aristotle's notion of nature. As definition goes like this: "Nature is intrinsic principle of movement", we talk about what it means for something to be "intrinsic", "principle" and in "movement". We advertise one thing, provide you with three things and charge you with no-thing. Only on KT.

Slava

International support to Ukraine brought forward one word, being repeated so many times now, that even birds are tweeting it: “Slava!”, “Slava!". We decided to put forward some thoughts on awkwardness this Slavic word acquires when taken up by certain demographics.

Maps of Unmeaning

In this podcast we address the problem of "maps of meaning" as an inadequate and dangerous attempt to "make sense" of the world mediated through flow of information. The subject is nothing new for KT, yet Russians were kind enough to provide us with some original examples and incentives to revisit some problems we already discussed at length, such as: limits of human intellectuality, inadequacy of "meaning" as the substitute for "purpose/end", incomprehensibility of evil, nuances of the blanked term "West" that get lost to most Westerners, Russian information offensive, how one evil doesn't justify other evil, etc.
