Ad Barbaris

We interrupt the practice of publishing exclusively our original content and nick the extract from the book length series of interviews Cardinal Robert Sarah gave to French author Nicholas Diat. Although, in religious matters, we rarely address the problems of contemporary Church directly, prefering instead to bring out the positive content of Christian Tradition and simultaneously address the proverbial signs of the times as we see them in accordance with our mainly philosophical expertise, this time around we cannot pass on the opportunity to express admiration for a man who does both of these things with clarity that we would be hard pressed to match, even from our comfortable, marginal, position of much freedom and zero influence. As the text is multilayered and at few points Cardinal's wording is especially succint in addressing some of the ills we've been writing of at length, readers can expect commentary to follow.

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.

Dissolving Faces: EU and Frankenstein Democracy

Nowadays dissident voices in Europe are squarely put on the right of political spectrum. However, we on KT tend to see the entirety of this spectrum as not very well useful in the face of the threat that is more or less vaguely sensed but rarely clearly defined. Here we'll provide a modest contribution to clarifying its nature by using kindergarten method: displaying its face(s) in pictures.

Let us face the many faces of the politics of dissolution.

Paragons of Subhumanity: On Post-birth Abortion and Other Merry Subjects

A long winded discussion between yours truly and Deirdre of Luminar Podcast initiated by academic advocacy of infanticide or, as authors of 2012 article "After-birth abortion: why should the baby live?" we use as the starting point call it: after-birth abortion.

However, and not surprisingly, this podcast covers much more than this peculiar form of high brow nihilism.

Discussion touches upon, among other things:

problem of person and the reality of soul, Christianity and paganism, Hegel and the  philosophy of absolute subject, posthumanism, euthanasia, abortion and vulnerability of women, reaction from the Right, impossibility of traditionalist revolution and dangers stemming thereof, Thomas Aquinas, Plato, Aristotle, Anaxagoras, science and science fiction, Alexander Dugin, resurgence of history after its supposed end in liberal utopia, forgiveness, Down syndrome

and much, much more.

Transcendent Men: Hegel and Posthumanism (pt.3)

In the third and final podcast we sum up the meaning of Hegelian dialectics and it's analogies to Posthumanism.

While Hegelian philosophy, like all philosophy of Modernity, suffers from unbridgeable gap it digs between humanity and the world, posthumanism revels in the abyss it digs between narcissistic individual and everything else, both humanity and the world.
