How Of A Metapostcontinental Philosopher Are You?

After modernity, comes postmodernity. After postmodernity, comes postpostmodernity. And after postpostmodernity comes metapostmodernity. Metapostmodernity is the ultimate phase of theoretical self-consciousness in which the games played by postmodernity are taken seriously and science intersects with charlatanery in ontological cynicism. Hate it or love it, metapostcontinental philosophy is the current predicament of the intellectual self-indulgent class. The question is: are you an accomplice of this geopolitical apocalypse?

    Marx is outdated.

    Non-Marxist, if that is what you mean.

  2. What do you think about the destiny of philosophy as a discipline?

    Correct
    Incorrect
    Philosophy is alright until it starts diminishing scientific truth.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Philosophy can even give us metaphysical lessons as long as it goes hand in hand with science.
    Correct

    The future of philosophy is theory.

    Philosophy will only subsist if it is introduced to science - not science to philosophy.

    Philosophy represents the ultimate form of dynamics in showing us the possibility of producing value ex nihilo.

    Correct
    Incorrect
    No, that would only make more people suffer.
    Correct

    It is not a matter of whether it should or should not be accelerated. Acceleration is an infinite speed, non-stopable process that can't be resisted, only embraced.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    As long as it serves as a speculative tool.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    As long as it does not legitimise capitalist ideology.

    Incorrect
    Capitalism is an abstract generality. What should be accelerated is the micro-processes of machinic construction of value.

    Why revolutionise capitalism when we can revolutionise philosophy-(of)-revolution?

    There is no pre-given existence. The conditions of appearence must be built upon the ashes of representation.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    It depends on the materials used for the construction of Reza.
    Correct
    Incorrect
    Yes.

    The transcendental is subject of relinquishment as much as subject of production.
