When fantasies initiate action---when they are themselves the very beginnings of action—the objective in question is real and therefore should be sought: indeed, it is already being sought. And when fantasies delay action—when they are retreats from reality, not initial forays into it—the objective in question is not real and is not to be pursued.

Skepticism in Relation to Disbelief in Personal Freedom
January 17, 2018 04:13 AM PST

Granting that there is more substance to the idea that we lack freedom than there is to the idea we know nothing about the external world, neither idea has much substance; and the appeal of both ideas, especially of the latter—and especially of two taken in conjunction---is that they give bureaucrats an excuse to be bureaucrats—to be people who do not know anything are therefore under no obligation to do anything.

Insecurity as Lack of Intent
January 17, 2018 03:29 AM PST

Neurotic fears are often conscious proxies for non-neurotic negative intentions—non-neurotic negative desires---with which one, for whatever reason, one will not permit oneself to consciously identify. ‘One neurotically fears that such and such won’t pan out’ equals ‘one unconsciously, non-neurotically wants such and such not to happen.’

Plato's Gaffe: Response to L&H Productions
January 16, 2018 01:02 AM PST

In their attempt to make philosophy engage the world, Locke and Hume empiricized philosophy. But in empiricizing philosophy, Locke and Hume made philosophy collapse into pure skepticism, pure skepticism being the most compete conceivable autistic withdrawal from reality into one’s own mind. And what this shows is that, even when philosophers try to make philosophy not be an autistic retreat, it ends up being precisely that. Which does rather confirm my conception of philosophy as autistic retreat.

Empiricism and Its Limits (Complete Audio Book)
January 15, 2018 10:32 AM PST

Observation apprises us of what is, but not of what must be. It therefore does not apprise us of logical norms or of relations of logical dependence. In addition, the transformation of sensory information (pictorial) information into propositional (conceptual, non-pictorial) information presupposes knowledge of how to convert information of one kind into information of some other kind, and it therefore presupposes knowledge of logical equivalencies. Thus, not all knowledge is derived from sense-perception, even after allowances are made for the distinction between knowledge-like, but not genuinely knowledge-mediating, cognitive structures, on the one hand, and genuine knowledge, on the other. A philosophical justification is provided for Freud's profound insights, in Chapter VII of the Interpretation of Dreams, concerning the limits of iconic ideation. Wittgenstein's so-called "Picture-Theory" of language is examined.
