    “In communist society, where nobody has one exclusive sphere of activity... society regulates the general production and thus makes it possible for me to do one thing today and another tomorrow, to hunt in the morning, fish in the afternoon, rear cattle in the evening, criticize after dinner, just as I have in mind, without ever becoming hunter, herdsman or critic.”

    Gramsci thought that a frontal attack on an unpopular autocratic regime, such as Tsarist Russia, had a good chance of success. But in liberal democratic societies the struggle would be longer and would involve ideas and culture, rather than just politics and economics

    So, however readers might interpret a newspaper article about a strike, the important thing for Marxists is that it is in a newspaper which is owned and controlled by someone who has a “hegemonic” point of view and wishes to promote that view. Postmodernists cannot see patterns in society.

    A question of absurdity

    “There is but one truly serious philosophical problem, and that is suicide. Judging whether life is or is not worth living amounts to answering the fundamental question of philosophy.” So begins Albert Camus (1913-60) in The Myth of Sisyphus (1942). He stiffens the dose by quoting Nietzsche: “a philosopher, to deserve our respect, must preach by example.”

    But then, Camus at once sees that “a reason for living is also an excellent reason for dying.” In either case, a sacrifice might be at stake. The question is – must life have a meaning to be lived? He concludes no, in view of the absurd, “it will be lived all the better if it has no meaning.”

    WILL YOU REALLY COMMIT SUICIDE?
    NOT FOR THE TIME BEING …
    Andre Franciscoцитирапреди 2 години
    … for the time being. What a miraculous colloquialism, unique to English. What does “time being” mean, lifted out of its everyday commonplace? It is like saying moment, but more, a “provisory expectancy”. Truly an astonishment to thinking, if I listen deeply to it.

    TO BE, OR NOT TO BE, THAT IS THE QUESTION …
    Hamlet’s “problem of being” does not of course make him an Existentialist. Besides, he is a fiction, and his speech is Shakespeare’s ironic reminder of that. Is this not a clue to disavowing the temptation of literature?
