Hitler has imposed a new categorical imperative upon humanity [. .]: to arrange their thinking and conduct, so that Auschwitz never repeats itself, so that nothing similar ever happen again.
— Adorno, Negative Dialectics
(Redmond translation, abridged)
- Donald Trump needs, and (in a way) is getting, ethics education from children – about ‘the importance of being kind to other people, even if they’re different than you are.’
- Daily Mail (‘Daily Fail‘) advertisers to boycott. (Why? The Mail will print just about anything for money or influence. Moreover, is hypocritical – it denounces perversity whilst encouraging its readers to ogle minors. Surely, for such a paper to have the influence that it does – and it is a considerable influence – is bad for our democracy.)
- My piece, ‘Adorno and the Reproach that a View is “Too Subjective”’ has been (re)published by Four By Three Magazine. (It was published first by The Partially Examined Life.)
- ‘Philosophy Breakfast’ course at Wivenhoe Bookshop. A NEW COURSE on philosophy and The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy starts January the 28th. Please see this page of the Wivenhoe Bookshop’s website and/or this syllabus.
- From January I will be teaching with Learning for Pleasure, Brentwood. Here is the syllabus.
