    The aim seems to be political science. The icons of crit theory seem to begin their education, ostensibly, scouring all the great works and, sadly, I think, turn to science for new ideas. Marx, as I understand it, spurned philosophy in its entirety save turning Hegels dialectical spiritualism into materialism. So, as someone who is engaged by philosophy, I find this phase of it, which has captured so much attention is recent history, oddly prescriptive.

    Hi John. I don't think my PIII/256M/5G notebook would handle Skype. <g> My crit theory is weak to nil anyway. I would, however, like to understand how the icons begin with philosophy and yet somehow coalesce around an a-philosophical­ agenda.

    Hey, I just recently finished a senior thesis on 20th century analytic and post-analytic theories of mental content. ;-) I noticed you were interested in post-analytic philosophy
