    Spreading Kritik

    Sorry for getting to this so late. Here's the document, y'all. https://drive.google.com/file/d/0B_MEhz6Cg_aJR1I4M1BOX0piQzg/view?usp=sharing

    Spreading Kritik

    No need for trades -- if someone PMs me tomorrow I'll try to update this thread with a new upload of the file. PMs send an email notification, which will remind me. I'd do it now but I'm swamped with classes, clubs, and newspaper work, also I'll probably forget about this by tomorrow lel
  3. You should provide more information on what exactly you're wanting to criticize. What's the angle for "International Law Bad" (I assume) that you're going for? You can find links to I-Law in most cap, neolib, colonialism, afro-pessimism/race kritik files that camps put out. Look through the caselist wikis as well.
  4. Not sure would differentiate this from a neoliberalism K. Check caselists and camp files for Cap and Neolib files.
  5. I highly recommend using the cross-x search function to find more on this; there are a lot of older threads with great posts that explain K debate very well, but you should look for them. I'd link, but my familiarity with this site has waned over the past year or so. The search bar is in the top-right corner of cross-x webpages. I also recommend looking at the bottom of this page, in the "Similar Topics" box, which has some relevant threads for you to look through.

    We completed another test, so I updated the folders. First, I added my reading notes to Schopenhauer in the newly-reorganized "Schopenhauer" folder. Second, I uploaded a "Wagner - Birth of Tragedy - Genealogy(1)" folder with my class notes and reading guide entries. We went over Schopenhauer's influence on Wagner and their influence on Nietzsche, Nietzsche's use of the Apollonian and Dionysian concepts in The Birth of Tragedy, the idea that life is an aesthetic phenomenon, and then we got to the first essay of The Genealogy of Morals. We discuss ressentiment, bad conscience (some), and Nietzsche's physiological approach to philosophy and his genealogical approach to history. Further explored are topics like the distinction between active and reactive forces, affirmation and denial, why there's no such thing as a person, that everything is a force and there is no such thing as what you may call fixed "substance" ontology, why will to power doesn't really seek power, and more! Included are my copious reading notes of the Deleuze readings we had to do from his Nietzsche and Philosophy. If you've ever wanted Deleuze's passages on Nietzsche condensed to 14-page summation essays, your dream is now fulfilled. If not, you're a normal person, which is to say a boring one. If you read Deleuze, if you read Nietzsche or Schopenhauer, if you've ever tried to use ressentiment as an impact (or tried to debate against it), if you've ever wondered where Foucault gets so damned much of his influence from: this will be a helpful resource for you. Here's the link again: https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_MEhz6Cg_aJb0EtcXdFTWlueGs I hope this is helpful.

    Edelman aff

    A pessimistic literature base lends itself to providing the K aff with strong offense against topicality and framework. An optimistic base, if you're not advocating a topical plan, will make those debates much more difficult.

    Oh, I forgot to mention: there's not very much on the fourth book of World as Will and Representation, the one on ethics, which is crucial for the debate-kritik version of his philosophy. I missed classes for the GSU tournament. But you should read the last three sections of his book on your own, and reading the notes will prime you sufficiently for that. It'll introduce you to the "alt," so to speak, and why suicide is not the answer, and what we should (un)expect once committed to the cessation of willing. There are other sections in the fourth book that are important, but those last three are probably the most insightful.

    This semester I've had the fortune to take a course called "Nietzsche and German Philosophy," taught by Dr. Judith Norman of Trinity University. Besides being an intelligent and entertaining lecturer, Dr. Norman has translated Schopenhauer's World as Will and Representation Vol. 1 and Nietzsche's Beyond Good and Evil, The Antichrist, Ecce Homo, Twilight of the Idols, The Case of Wagner, and "Nietzsche Contra Wagner." To say she's familiar with the material, and much of the underpinnings of contemporary continental philosophy, is an understatement. Since we've finished the unit on Schopenhauer's World as Will and Representation, I decided I'll upload my notes from lectures here. Anybody that enjoys going for Lacan, Schopenhauer, Nietzsche, or Deleuze in debate rounds will benefit greatly from the background knowledge and articulations, page cites, etc. Anyone that likes the history of philosophy or continental philosophy's forerunners especially should check them out, too. And if you like having well-informed answers to these kritiks, then it's good to check these out, as they question and highlight inconsistencies in Schopenhauer's writing. As the semester goes on, we'll be reading various works by Nietzsche, Deleuze's Nietzsche and Philosophy, and some Freud. I'll be glad to update this thread with notes as we finish the units. Hope you all enjoy, Daniel https://drive.google.com/open?id=0B_MEhz6Cg_aJb0EtcXdFTWlueGs
