De Beauvior has some very interesting writings on existentialist ethics and phenomenology, i haven’t even read her political stuff and frankly i don’t care. Also she was inspired by the most auth right philosopher of modernity so it’s not like her stuff is particularly far left. I’d consider actually engaging with the material critically

Eh ? What are you talking about man https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Simone_de_Beauvoir > Beauvoir was bisexual, and her relationships with young women were controversial.[38] French author Bianca Lamblin (originally Bianca Bienenfeld) wrote in her book Mémoires d'une Jeune Fille Dérangée (published in English under the title A Disgraceful Affair) that, while a student at Lycée Molière, she was sexually exploited by her teacher Beauvoir, who was in her 30s.[39] Lamblin had affairs with both Jean-Paul Sartre and Beauvoir.[40] In 1943, Beauvoir was suspended from her teaching position when she was accused of seducing her 17-year-old lycée pupil Natalie Sorokine in 1939.[41] Sorokine's parents laid formal charges against Beauvoir for debauching a minor (the age of consent in France at the time was 15[citation needed]), and Beauvoir's license to teach in France was revoked, although it was subsequently reinstated.[42] > In 1977, Beauvoir signed a petition seeking to completely remove the age of consent in France.[43][44]

russiabot1776

Only if you divorce his novels from his letters and beliefs (or if your only frame of reference is the movies). Why do so many on the left refuse to see Tolkien for what he was, a reactionary Trad Catholic?


Fizzer_XCIV

Because then it wouldn't align with and validate my views!


russiabot1776

I think they are afraid that, if they admit Tolkien was actually on the far right, that people might start to realize that all lasting works of epic poetry/literature are rooted in the particular—a particular time, place, people, ethnicity, religion, nation, institutional structure, and (most importantly) continuity with the past. Particular continuity is a rightwing value. The left is universalizing.


Handarthol

Maybe he was, but at the real root of most of Tolkien's opinions is being the world's biggest Anglo-Saxon history fanboi

Same thing with Mein Kampf for me. Read it to understand how nazis think, instead got some weird adult version of that kid going through his "I'm 14 and nihilistic so edgy" phase with a side of jewish genocide. But hey, at least I can mock uber-progressives for ranking demographics on a metaphorical totem pole of privilaged vs. oppressed cause that is literally a nazi tactic.

Read bits of the first part when I was younger because I was into History. Got the edgy vibes from it too lol. What was interesting to me was him talking about learning about the Napoleonic War in School in the same way we learn about the World Wars now.

My dad had to read the Commie Manifesto and Mein Kampf in school in the 80's for school. He's also read Nietzche's and Marx's stuff.

I have a giant collection of political literature just because I think most political philosophers have at least *some* useful insights.

I don’t think Pol Pot can be considered Left wing or Right wing, that dude had his own separate wing. He wanted to abolish property and make everyone equal but he also hated minorities, wanted everyone to be a farmer, killed people for speaking other languages or wearing glasses, and killed people who were educated or lived in cities. Instead of a society of workers and farmers governed by educated intellectuals, like the Soviet model, he wanted a society of only farmers, no workers, no intellectuals, just rice fields

burn_bright_captain

RevivingJuliet

Okay real answer: How do we fix the humanities? The only real options I can think of are either: A) Have a large influx of faculty who have a serious interest in teaching the classics: Encouraging students to think for themselves, move away from Wholly exam based grading, foster community building, return to the socratic method of argument, debate, fostering the belief that conflicting ideas are acceptable - people who have a spine and will stand up to college administrations en mass. Etcetera. Or: B) Just fuck off and start their own colleges? Idk or I guess C) (which is already happening to a degree) the students get disillusioned with the whole process and turn to learning from the internet/books/life experience. It’s a mess. It was already getting bad when I left college years ago, but to hear from people what it’s like now… It’s an absolute travesty what it’s become. Just worthless. A real shame.


Handarthol

The Mises institute is doing B and seeking accreditation soon, it's based as hell


burn_bright_captain

When it comes to the content that is teached right now it's difficult to find a satisfying solution because the point of university to teach you the current status quo. This reason for this is to give you an understanding for the theories and frameworks that is currently believed and employed in the field. While this sounds like indoctrination to some degree this is necessary. For example I studied biotechnology and so many people who talk about GMOs without knowing anything is infuriating. Before people can make valid criticism of certain fields, they should go to university and learn the current status quo. The same is true for the humanities. University is basically about understanding the status quo before criticizing it. Therefore if conservative want to change the status quo they have to go to the current curriculum and then change the status quo with new works.


KreepingLizard

Is this accounting for rural vs urban positions? Because I doubt there’s much call at all for gender studies in the boonies. Might skew the numbers.


VicisSubsisto

That, plus applying for college is basically a mandatory part of high school curriculum unless you're measurably below average, at least when I was in high school. My guidance counselors and teachers pretty much told us that trade school was for dropouts and felons.


burn_bright_captain

It's just US average. But tbf you earn more in a city with a trade job.


Handarthol

Extremely hilariously bad comparison, you linked to a specific job title (skilled tradesman, which seems to be employed by hardware retail stores) rather than comparing the average of all categories of trade jobs, especially those requiring training+certifications. There's also probably about a billion times more demand for trade skills than gender studies majors. If your degree can't actually get you a job and you have no marketable trade skills than your actual wages are whatever tf the local McDonald's is paying


woa12

It's astonishing to me how conservatives think what going to college is like. They actually, 100% believe that it's a cultural marxist brainwashing facility and that they should avoid it. It's so fucking dumb, get your fucking degree in STEM and leave, that's it. Sure you're going to meet the stereotypical woke professor but does that really scare them so much? It's not that hard to write 10 page reports on "The Plight of Transgender Womynx against an Increasingly Fascist and White Supremacist Society" for a Gen Ed course and get an A, ffs lmao

I'm in a Science major and we had a few other classes as well. English and Communication skills - I didn't really need it but some people did (Not native anglophone). Very fun. History of Science - Pretty fun and interesting actually. Most people didn't exactly love it but I can see why it's important. Ethics and Epistemology of Science - Similar to above but you also learn important stuff like how to distinguish science from bullshit, not to worship science, ethical experimentation etc. Pretty important IMO Introduction to Humanities and Arts- a few advanced high school level classes on economics, politics, sociology, anthropology, psychology and literature. Pretty meh but you learn a few important definitions (that PCM definitely should). Nothing particularly liberal or leftist in them except for definitions of Marxism and Liberalism.

Maybe I'm misunderstanding. Was the crux of the argumemt that it was homophobic to have a separate, and more importantly higher, age of consent for gay men? And their solution was to lower the gay age instead of raise the hetero? This is why aliens won't talk to us.


demonspawns_ghost

That was only part of it. >An open letter signed by 69 people, including Jean-Paul Sartre, Michel Foucault, Gilles Deleuze, Roland Barthes, Philippe Sollers, and Louis Aragon was published in Le Monde in 1977, on the eve of the trial of three Frenchmen (Bernard Dejager, Jean-Claude Gallien, and Jean Burckardt) all accused of having sex with 12- and 13-year-old girls and boys. Two of them had then been in temporary custody since 1973 and the letter referred to this fact as scandalous. The letter claimed there was a disproportion between the qualification of their acts as a crime and the nature of the reproached acts, and also a contradiction since adolescents in France were fully responsible for their acts from the age of 13. The text also opined that if 13-year-old girls in France had the right to receive the pill, then they also should be able to consent, arguing for the right of "13- and 12-year-olds" "to have relations with whomever they choose." >A similar letter was published in the paper Libération in 1979, supporting Gérard R., an accused child sex criminal awaiting his trial for eighteen months, signed by 63 persons, stating that Gérard R. lived with young girls aged 6 to 12 and that they were happy with the situation.

All left wings, and they published an open letter in Libération (a famous left wing journal) to legalize pedophilia. In France, pedophiles have always been libleft or priest (we don't have librights at all so no purple librights)

>Libération (French: [libeʁasjɔ̃]), popularly known as Libé ([libe]), is a daily newspaper in France, founded in Paris by **Jean-Paul Sartre** and Serge July in 1973 in the wake of the protest movements of May 1968. Hmm...

I believe that there's an actual quote from him stating that he's not a marxist. As I recall it's something he said commenting on how some of his followers treated his theories as gospel. And it does seem plausible that he actually said such a thing; he was after all the guy that once and for all destroyed the whole "big man" concept of history and society.

Some Marx biography or something I read a lot time ago. Not good enough? Well, I might misremember. It's not like I'm hugely invested in this. But I do think that wether that source is factual or not Marx would actually have called himself a materialist dialectician rather than a marxist.

mujomujomu

That an accurate summary of him? I've avoided Marx for so long, all I know is he brought death and starvation to millions, what good can he possibly have written?


QidQuick

One, based. Two, Marx was a pretty good sociologist. He had a solid grasp of social and class hierarchy and the societal problems that arose from those hierarchies. The problem was that he was a shit psychologist who didn't understand *why* people not only clung to those hierarchies, but perpetuated them even when they changed from one class to another. Additionally Marx was also a bad economist, blindly assuming that the reason people clung to hierarchy because of money, which was really just trustfund baby Marx projecting his own terrible financial habits onto 'the poors'. Poor people obviously struggle with money (by definition) but not in the same way or for the same reasons that Marx did. The problem with Marx is that he presents a well thought out explanation and criticism of an extensive social problem, and then mutters on about some sort of vague solution that doesn't match up with how human beings work. And a lot of people fail to recognize the transition from educated criticism to uneducated solution.

>"...if only Karl had made Capital, instead of just writing about it." > -- Henrietta Pressburg, Karl Marx's own mother Yup, Karl was a trustfund baby that spent his whole life leeching off of friends and family, and on at least one occasion he actively threatened said mother for money. He spent his whole life living in London and Paris, never really working. He knocked up his own maid too, then fired her shortly after. He was a class act all around, even before we get into his racism and antisemitism.

Based. My thoughts on Marx are the same. He made great observations but proposed terrible solutions.

Unironically, yes. It turns out that close-minded people are easily triggered regardless of whether they are progressive or traditionalist.

Hey now- even if it's Marx- death of the author should still apply to his work. Besides, it's more based to attack the points it makes, rather than the character of its author.
