Original blog entry here:http://filmhistorypolitical.wordpress.com/2013/02/02/enlightenment-versus-modern-feminism/I've recently read several early feminists. Mary Wollstonecraft , Alice Bacon , Margaret Fuller . I spent the most time on Mary Wollstonecraft and Alice Bacon. The first, because Vindication of the Rights of Woman  is supposed to be a cla...

Never used this facility before so just exploring to find out what happens.  Like the idea of community blogs, though I'm not quite sure what to blog about just yet.

Elbow Pain

Posted by Michio in Random Fitness Stuff, 15 January 2012 - - - - - - · 2,976 views

I've been having some elbow pain lately. It started a couple of weeks ago when I tried to move up 5 lbs on my overhead press, and it actually felt pretty severe. I did one set of 5 on my top set and felt a sharp pain building in my left elbow. I rested for a couple of minutes, to see if it would go away, attempted another set, and before I could even full...

For God in Heaven

Dark night of the soul, oh how you have come once again.In all glory, veiled in mystery and beauty,Seducing all who God grants you. Oh, dearest lady, how you take me, violate me into submission.I hate that I burn for you, yearn for you. And, oh, how I love the misery you drown me in!Suffocate me, dearest lover, with abandonment.Kiss me till I foam at...

Definition for Christianity

Posted by AlviraofDeath in Thoughts, 14 December 2011 - - - - - - · 4,160 views

I was reading a book called The Default Life (by Sam McLoughlin) He inserted a rather interesting definition for Christianity. (Urban Dictionary) A cosmic Jewish Zombie who was his own father can make you live forever if you symbolically eat his flesh and telepathically tell him you accept him as your master, so he can remove an evil force from your soul...

Poetry Sundays (October 23)

This week I read Percy Bysshe Shelley's  Ode to the West Wind :   IO wild West Wind, thou breath of Autumn's being,Thou, from whose unseen presence the leaves deadAre driven, like ghosts from an enchanter fleeing,Yellow, and black, and pale, and hectic red,Pestilence-stricken multitudes: O Thou,Who chariotest to their dark wintry bedThe wingèd seeds,...

The presence of evil in the room was overwhelming. It was thick, choking the life out of a young girl who lay inert on the black marble floor. Blue, glazed over eyes gazed listlessly into a realm that was not of this world. For many days she had laid there. Not moving, not dying. A beautiful angel, kept in a state of absolute perfection, previously unknow...

More Darkness

Posted by DeadCanDance in DeadCanDance's Blog, 08 March 2011 - - - - - - · 1,227 views

The problem, perhaps my central problem, is that I'm naturally lazy. I want to short circuit the path to brilliance, to excellence in art, in expression, in being a human worthy of approbation. I've all but given up on philosophy. Argument, or even friendly philosophic discourse, has lost much of its appeal; in short, I am not inclined to want to...

Let Me Go - Three Doors Down

Posted by Soleil in With a Cup of Coffee, 28 February 2011 - - - - - - · 747 views

17 years 9 months and 8 days is how long it took for my life to reach this moment. Not just this particular moment in writing in this blog, on this site I just discovered this morning. This moment in who I am and what I've done. I know it sounds really outplayed and cliche. It was supposed to sound outplayed and cliche. A nerdy and nostalgic part...

Hello. I read a lot of philosophy, but am more interested in applying methods of thinking to actual life; an interest in psychology, art, literature, politics and 'mental health' point towards proposed 'content'. I don't like systems or metaphysical theories of everything. I don't like borders, edges, classifications and the separa...

Life. What is it about?

Posted by DaveT in Objective Opinions, 09 September 2010 - * * * * * · 840 views

It's about smashing the sh*t out of unsociables created by society. It's about the violence necessary to complete a good night out. It's about good use of glass. It's about putting all the rage from hours of editing crap articles in some 2nd-rate newspaper into one wild f***ing swing. It's about the phrase that can only be said in Engl...

Love as a Core Philosophical Issue, Part 2

Posted by Michael S. Pearl in Michael S. Pearl's Blog, 01 July 2010 - * * * * * · 747 views

The word love  is commonly applied to the personal experience of feeling affection for some other individual(s) - regardless of whether that affection is of a romantic or of a filial sort or a sort of friendship. Most often, and for most people, the term love  is reserved for an extraordinarily intense or exceptional attraction - again, whether of a roman...

Back to basics

In the early days, blogs were called weblogs, and were used by developers to annotate and sharenotes about their coding. They turned out to be a massive hit, and became a way of people to share all sorts of thingsIn my life I must have started dozens of blogs, in relation to work, projects, teaching, community building etcBut never kept up with any of the...

Presumably, these are some of the common characteristics that make for a beautiful person (from Cosmetic Beauty ):Skin A luminous, clear complexion is a major signal of youth and beauty. Skin that is free from imperfections is a sign that a person is free from disease, and a wrinkle-free complexion is a signifier of youth. Interestingly, a recent study ha...

The joyful Act

Posted by nivenkumar in Blog 1007, 13 January 2009 - - - - - - · 5,670 views

I have become increasingly sceptical of action, of  acting . All action is action in re action. We are never alone. is there a possibility for a pure  action? The act for the act;s sake, for the joy of acting. Theoretically, there is such a thing. But the act, once executed, like a text, is sent forth into the collective, and like the text, is read, inter...
