In the previous quote from Plutarch’s "Life of Aemilius Paulus", we reflected a bit on the transitory nature of everything “under the Sun” and on the delusion behind the notion of progress. We offer one more excerpt from the same life, this time on a different topic.
All men crave knowledge by nature, that is the opening statement of Aristotle's Metaphysics. Yet the good chunk of that great work, as well as some of the best passages ever written in metaphysics and theology, rather deal with the discipline of putting this craving in its natural confines, than attempting to incite it further.
In this podcast - an appendix to our ongoing series on traditional notions of destiny and Providence - we focus on attempts of those who try to cross this boundary and take more than is due to them; overstep the bounds of knowledge by not understanding its nature and its limits.
Strangely enough, those are people whose activities somehow always end up in a sort of religious marketing rendering them into wholesale agents on "the market of truth" with a claim to knowledge traditionally ascribed to angels - an total intuitive perception of the truth of the given subject and claim to prophetic insight.
They are wholesale angels, indeed. And they are so full of "spirit of prophecy", that they cannot help but confuse the sound of expiration coming from their bowels for the pouring forth of the Holy Spirit.
Is there a substantial difference between revolutionaries of the Left and Right? Or, conversely, is there an even deeper identity between nihilists of traditional and progressive bent? What does it mean to be "against the modern world"? KT offers some answers.
Kali Tribune's Department for Philosophy in conjunction with Laboratory of Broken Mics and Fractured English proudly presents an interpretative reading of Ennead III, 7. "On Eternity and Time" by Plotinus. The purpose of our inquiry is to demonstrate a peculiarities of the method of what we call "traditional metaphysics".
Movie review that doesn't review the movie but the structure of Being instead ... that sounds silly, doesn't it? Not on Kali Tribune.
Kali Tribune proudly presents the first contribution of our Romanian correspondent Mihai Marinescu. In this article he puts forth the question of distinction of religion as a given and religion as a choice, specifically from the standpoint of Orthodox Christianity. The final analysis yields some worrisome trends on display in the West, where conversion is, as it appears, confused with it's more or less militant inversion.
Although Kali Tribune has a policy of reducing guest posts to translations in order to keep the original content at minimum of 90 percent, this fine article warrants exception. At least two thirds of the total of 000,000,3 of our English speaking readers should check out how Philip D. Collins traces Darwinian metaphysics to it's pre-Charles roots in the essay we nicked from Conspiracy Archive. So, enjoy the "nicked post" which will get you in just the right mood for upcoming Agenda 21 analysis currently being cooked by our Department of Hermeneutics. So, before we present you with dissection of Global Constitution, it is only natural to let Philip provide you with excellent expose of the religion of it's Founding Fathers.
