Le Vautre - Introduction

Post by Le Vautre »

Hi,

I'm a 22 years old French historian-in-training (master's degree) who lives in Grenoble (South-East). France is obviously a really philosophic country, by that I mean, if every Frenchman & Frenchwoman evidently can't understand it (philosophy), even the posh ones, it's nevertheless a great tradition here (Macron wrote a thesis with Paul Ricoeur!). Philosophy it's a compulsory course in highschool, & also a compulsory topic of the baccalauréat (first degree, our SAT so to speak). But I discover philosophy randomly & not in school by reading at 16 The World as Will and Representation (Schopenhauer) in the French translation of Vincent Stanek. Currently, I define myself as a bergsonian intuitionist, that is to say (fundamentally) skeptical. ...

... I was so found of philosophy that I became administrator of one of the biggest French philosophy forum (LibertéPhilo), which doesn't exist anymore. I hang out on Digression now, which is the second biggest French philosophy forum (under the pseudonym Agathos). I also have a Quora profile, active in French & English, under the name Guillaume de Séveille. As I said, I read Bergson, but also Lacan, Jung, René Girard, Teilhard de Chardin, Clément Rosset, Nietzsche, Schopenhauer, Jean-Luc Marion, Cioran, & in literature Huysmans.

I also have four dogs & five cats! :lol:

"I also have four dogs & five cats!"

Woah, you deserve a PhD in philosophy for that alone! Smart move, having more cats than dogs, although the dogs probably disagree.

Bienvenu au Forum. C'est interessant ce que vous ecrivez-la. Je vais peut-etre aller voir la bas. Moi, je suis du Quebec.

Probation here can be a drag but you get a sense of accomplishment once you past it and then you just hope it won't be taken away from you, but I don't think you will have to worry about that.

So you are a yellow jacket?

Yes, I feel there was a jungian sense to be initiatory like that. :lol: Maybe it's what Jung called the way to the completeness of the Self by the Chthonic Mother! – That is to say, the drag, what Peterson would have called "the belly of the whales". ...

No I'm not a yellow jacket, and, for some reason, I don't like them. To be simple, I think they are in self-reassurance and anti-introspective. Macron, for his part, made obvious communication mistakes. But le diable porte pierre. ...
