I don't like to shit on philo majors too much but how do you guys read that shit? It's so dry and boring and exists only in abstract - it never evolves along with humanity. Fiction can be just as philosophical and entertaining.

So let me get this straight.

>be Foucault
>born from rich doctors and have a great youth
>be emo in your 20s
>wants to kill himself because he's a gay man that's not accepted and can't become a doctor
>dad sends him to the best therapist in France
>proceeds to get better because of therapy
>realises he's more of an academic and also a marxist
>proceeds to spend the rest of his life trying to come up with arguments to support the notion that the modern improvements of western society were actually failures so that he can make marxism excusable
>dies of aids

Did he just have daddy issues because he couldn't get into medicine? And also, why did he try and debunk the thing that cured him of his depression?

>But truly to escape Hegel involves an exact appreciation of the price we have to pay to detach ourselves from him. It assumes that we are aware of the extent to which Hegel, insidiously perhaps, is close to us; it implies a knowledge, in that which permits us to think against Hegel, of that which remains Hegelian. We have to determine the extent to which our anti-Hegelianism is possibly one of his tricks directed against us, at the end of which he stands, motionless, waiting for us.

In what context does he say this? How can anti-Hegelianism be just one of Hegel's tricks? Is it because every new philosophy can be interpreted as just another step towards the Absolute?

Tell me the truth about Foucault, /lit/.
There has been so much rabble rousing around the "postmodernists" what with Peterson and the like blaming them for our collective wrong-think, which made me curious as to what those people were "actually" saying. Starting with Foucault (because he seems to be equally hated here)

So what was the point of his life's work?
Is there anything perennially relevant he came up with that everyone today should know?

4chan osmosis gives me the feeling that he's just a scam artist who's been sanctified as one of the pillars of modern thought by academia, but that is too easy, too reductive. I would really want to give this guy a genuine read but im constantly doubting if diving into his work is really worth it.

Alright, i'm going to read a book about Foucault now (because I dont understand him enough to actually read his books). If this thread dies, i'll just make another one tomorrow.

Is English "AIDS" or French "SIDA" a more euphonic term for black comedy?

I'm trying to think of an AIDS joke involving Russia and I'm not quite sure which variant will have the most "I'm going to hell for laughing at this" factor that I want in the joke.

Pic somewhat related.

Hey guys let me make massive sweeping historical statements with no knowledge of classical antiquity!

Hey guys let me posture as a leftist populist while also hiding behind academic jargon!

What a fucking fraud.

Is there any philosophy more useless and baseless than postmodernsim?

How could humanity exist without some sort of biological determinism? How could gender roles have developed so consistently throughout history without biological differences in males and females?

If everything is ultimately constructed through society and culture, how did society and culture develop at all? Wouldn't we still be mindless creatures functioning of survival instincts? But then how would survival instincts exist with biological determinism?

Fuck.
