A critical study of Heidegger’s existentialist phenomenology

Thomas Langan presents his exegesis study of Martin Heidegger’s phenomenology with a critical discourse of Heidegger’s epistemology and ontology. For him, Heidegger frequently used the word ‘Standing-out’ for existence, which in English neologism can be translated as ‘Ecstasies’ or ‘Ecstatic’. Moreover, the fact cannot be denied that the writings of Martin Heidegger have a great impact on protestant theology, literary theory, existential philosophy and history in Europe. One of the important thi

Why is Russia angry?

SINCE Russia’s prolonged war with Georgia in 2008 and the annexation of Crimea in 2014, the Western mainstream media has declared Russia an angry or aggressive state. Even geopolitical experts called it Russian offensive revisionism and speculated the beginning of new Cold War. Although there may be obvious reasons to blame the offensive nature of the Russian government, it cannot be denied that the West had betrayed Russia on several occasions by breaking the promises made with Russia during

Putin and Russian Sacred Geography

In both spiritual and geopolitical domain Eastern geography represents a qualitative space in which East is the symbol of ontological plus and West the ontological minus. According to ancient Chinese tradition, the East is Yang or male, bright or solar while and the West is Yin, the female, dark or lunar principle. In the East, the Russian Geography is strategic on the large Eurasian land mass. Moreover, the scared geography of Russia remained geopolitically relevant and important for stability

The myth of nationalism

The concept of the state is very old. It dates back to the ancient Greek era. In a lateral context, a state is nothing but a moral person, whose life consists of the union of its members. The nature of the state is the same as the nature of a person that gives men an absolute power over his body parts. Likewise, when it comes to the state, it is the social pact that shapes the body politics; giving it authority over all its members. Similarly, the concept of the nation-state is Euro-centric, wh

Fourth political theory: the quest for Eurasianism

The past is a Foreign country, these are the famous words of V.I Hartley but future is a quest; a quest for destiny, a quest for identity and a quest for order. History has always been ambiguous because facts are hard to establish, and reality is built on prejudices, misconception and ignorance of our perception and knowledge. When we talk about the twentieth century, it ended with the end of ideological conflict and marked the beginning of a new era in which ordinary masses began to define them

In search of an ideology

Great nations write their autobiographies in three manuscripts: the book of their deeds, the book of their words and the book of their arts, writes John Rushkin. Nations define their identity and glory through history and it is the discourse of their history that determines their ideological presuppositions as the foundation of their thought. The concept of ideology emerged from the social domain in the 17th century and with the dawn of the 18th century, it began encircling the political sphere

Tracing Heideggerian Philosophy in Alexander Dugin’s Fourth Political Theory

The dawn of the twentieth century marked itself as the significant era for the reformation of the German idealistic philosophy due to emergence of Husserlian Phenomenological School. Because in the eighteenth and nineteenth century, the German Philosophy especially the German idealism of the Hegelian version suffered major setbacks because of the rise of German materialism and Kantian metaphysics. On the contrary, the Hegelian idealistic thought was sidelined by the philosophers of that day bec

The politics of aesthetics Chaos

Art consist of fresh illusions, while truth consist of stale illusions, illusions so worn with use that they have come with time to be accepted as the rock bottom fact of the universe. Since the victory of neo-liberal capitalism, the social construction of reality was taken onboard by the western media with the objective of educating masses across the globe. The neo-liberal myths were transformed into social and political reality in an aesthetical way to divert masses from ideological politics.

The economic crisis of our age

Famous German philosopher Karl Marx referred to the cycles of history once and said: “History repeats itself first as tragedy, second as farce.” In contemporary discourse, the 1970s and 1980s marked themselves as the important decades of the recent history for various reasons. First, the prolonged war in Vietnam ended, which brought the US and China closer. Second, the oil embargo and the collapse of Bretton Woods. Third, the start of the Afghan war that paved the way for new strategic and econ

Post-Feminism: Against Patriarchy Or Men?

“We are still not enlightened but we are living in the age of enlightenment”. These are the words of renaissance philosopher Immanuel Kant. It is a fact that renaissance was self-conscious and was a new dawn in the history of Europe that resulted in the liberation of reason from the tyranny of medieval scholasticism. Likewise, with the dawn of 20th century, Feminist Movements swept across the new industrialised Europe demanding equal social, political and economic rights for women. In this reg

Beyond Liberalism: The Emergence Of New Identity Politics

Liberalism emerged as the most enduring philosophy of the enlightenment era but since the dawn of 21st century, it seems dying in vault. ‘Philosophy will not be able to effect immediate transformation of the present condition of the world. This is not only true of philosophy, but of all merely human thought and endeavors. Only God can save us’. These are the famous words of Martin Heidegger during his famous interview with Der Spiegel, in which he openly expressed his views about the crisis of l

Towards A New Resistance: Eurasian Postcolonialism – Identity, Difference And The Question Of Self

Identity, difference, and the question of self The world is a difficult and darkened place for innocent creatures to live. The metaphorical term “innocent” refers to the alienation of rational creatures, feeble humans, who authenticate their existence with the proud establishment of their civilizational epoch. The question is: How often has humanity reflected upon itself without delusions? The very intrigues and gentleness that human depicts is the illusive art it had learned from its diaspor

Eurasianism: The struggle for the multi-polar world

Three decades ago, American pragmatic commentator Francis Fukuyama wrote The end of History and the Last man, proclaiming the end of ideological war and celebrating the victory of the liberal order. The proclaimed words were no different from General George Marshall’s famous speech at Harvard University, in which he said: Both proclamations have something in common, the role of American leadership in maintaining world affairs. Whereas George Marshall explained the responsibility of American l

Russia’s obsession or geographic trap

“Vladimir Putin says he is a religious man, a great supporter of the Russian Orthodox Church. If so, he may well go to bed each night saying his prayers, asking God: “Why didn’t you put some mountains in Ukraine?”” These are the famous words of Tim Marshall in his book Prisoners of Geography. Throughout history, Russia feared its flat geography. Harsh weather assuaged those fears; Napoleon and Hitler both met their utter fate because of rigid Russian weather. Marshall claims, “The land on which

Communism is returning to China

“Dynasties begin with the very virtuous and noble founder, and then they continue through a series of rulers until they come to a bad last ruler, and he is so morally depraved that he is overthrown.” These are the famous words of Famous grand Chinese historian Sima Qian. After, British colonization China suffered from opium epidemic until the Communist revolution in 1949, when Mao Zedong banned Opium and annihilated opium edicts. Back then China was the most backward and agrarian country in Asia

Jean-Paul Sartre, Frantz Fanon and anti-colonial struggle

Jean-Paul Sartre through his writings had elaborately explained the unbridgeable divide between postcolonial and anti-colonial struggle. But he presented a different nature of post-colonial theory and was extensively concerned with the colonial and third world issues since 1948. He also well-defined colonial violence in his famous work: “The Critique of Dialectical Reason” and became one of the founders of the epistemological revolution. It was Sartre and Algerian-born philosopher Frantz Fanon w
