Are the methods of Hegelian dialectics majorly prevalent in the current waters of global politics? Are there any blatant examples of it which you know of?
This is the most subtle shitposting I have ever seen in my life. 10/10 thread, OP. I'm glad /his/ has arrived at this level of discourse. The TAS model generates some of the biggest butthurt I have ever seen, but mostly from philosobabies that have only read Republic and looked at Nietzsche's quotes on the internet.
Hegelian dialectics are applicable throughout history as a whole, not just in the "current waters of global politics". One of the biggest and most obvious ways I think that it is encapsulated in such a short frame of time is around the French Revolution. Absolute monarchy was thesis, radical republicanism was the antithesis, and Napoleon was the synthesis of the two, created out of the conflict that was the revolution and the Terror. Of course, then, Napoleon was also a thesis to the antithesis of a more moderate republicanism and federalism after the rejection of the restored Bourbon monarch in France and what was created in place of the HRE. The cycle goes on, with the synthesis being a thesis, forever and ever.
Now, when one examines modern philosophies, one can see this as well. Capitalism had existed in one form or another, but the full on libertarianism thing is a relatively new construct created from tying together philosophers that only contributed, in part, to the republicanism of their era. Marx was really who defined libertarianism, in his manifesto of what Communism is and what a revolutionary state is. He then created modern philosophy by defining both thesis and antithesis; the revolutionary Marxist state and the counterrevolutionary free market state. He tied the free market intrinsically to culture and tradition, and in this proposition he created the building blocks for postmodern thought.
After global revolution didn't happen, the Frankfurt school redefined the Marxist approach into Cultural Marxism. This was the first real postmodern ideology. Fascism was its antithesis.
because clearly /lit/ are the only ones who don't believe in ancient debunked conspiracy theories about da joos
Is that what we're calling it now when someone points out academic bias or teaching objectives? And academics have complete insulation from all criticism because many of them are Jewish?
Okay. You got me.
