Basic Notions of Metaphysics: Camera Obscura of Modernity pt. 1
In this podcast we put forward the notion of illusory problems and meaningless questions in philosophy. From the modern standpoint, which we exemplify by Kant’s and Wittgenstein’s positions, the entire history of metaphysics, theology and generally those modes of understanding that are poised to reaching transcendence in any conceivable way is merely a misunderstanding: either a natural illusion of the pure mind (Kant) or merely a case of pathological misuse of language (Wittgenstein).
We juxtapose these modern attempts at euthanasia of everything rooted in the origin of thought to instances of traditional understanding of basic notions of metaphysics we laid out in our previous work, such as: ‘being’, ‘truth’, ‘beautiful’, ’cause and effect’, transcendentals, etc.
Naturally it doesn’t bode well for transcendental philosophy and the philosophy of “linguistic turn”.
