  1. when i went i found it cheaper to buy food from safeway/eat out than to buy the meal plan
  2. I think ATP is definitively a better starting point than AO for a million different reasons
  3. this article is obviously terrible, as was that rostrum article, nothing to see here
  4. sure, i mean, some of the intricacies of religion are also lost in that d&g card. but the importance of univocity in deleuze as of difference & repetition should not be understated. this, imo, is one of the relatively few valid points that zizek identifies in OWB there is a chapter in the RO reader called "the perversity of rationalism" or something to that effect by milbank which goes into a bit more detail I think (I haven't read it)
  5. ok this arg imo is one of the best answers to deleuze -- the RO people generally are the most in-depth critics of duns-scotus derived philosophy that ive ever seen
  6. yup that is the arg w/o transcendence (god's grace) there is no significant difference between any ontic event or item
  7. 'revelationism' would be a pretty good container, yeah. I think this is fairly apparent in most of those cards
  8. actually god isnt real isn't really responsive. a responsive arg would be "assuming/acting as if god is real is bad". additionally, the evidence here is much more useful against authors like derrida, in which case the aff would not be extremely consistent with "god isnt real" [kinda the point of the strategy] i cut these cards during lunchtime like two years ago and never thought about them again... but milbank is *most certainly* not a rationalist in any sense of the term. i think you are right that this card doesn't really say anything helpful though edit: actually, I take that back. this card probably should just be merged with the one above it but certainly makes a card-worthy argument against rationalism/philosophies of pure reason, which definitely isn't the use of reason generally, but still indicts many strands of contemporary philosophy
  9. pretty simple human life is meaningless if we are not redeemed by Christ I cut some cards on this a while ago that never turned into anything Milbank K.docx
  10. wilderson has a specific answer to seshadri-crooks iirc -- near the end of red white and black if zizek then http://www.publicseminar.org/2014/11/notes-on-zizeks-absolute-recoil-2/#.VHujZcl5Uqx
  11. post about this in one of the college fb groups, you will get a 1000x more helpful response
  12. google "governmentality" don't get me wrong, this isn't a slam-dunk link, but I think it's a lot more interesting than the basic "NSA surveillance = bioptx" arg care of the self =/= liberal autonomy
