Thanks ... clearly Jim has an opinion, but is not interested in engaging with anyone contesting that opinion, but I suppose you might as well contest it nonetheless ... as if I expected otherwise.

Re: Vote of confidence?

I've had no problem with your moderation. I ignore the Steiner threads anyway since it is more of a cult than a philosophy or science so I missed most of the controversy anyway. I would think racism would be fair topic to consider for any view if it is structurally built into the view. I have enoug...

Re: observtiton, logic, folklore and presuppositions

For what it's worth, here are the links that Eugene felt were so important to bring to everyone's attention, assuming they have not been informed of similar opinions before. After I decided to leave the forum I felt that people sympathising with anthroposophy should also be informed about its racist...

Re: Vote of confidence?

Yada, Yada I'm going to move the links to the topic that Cleric already suggested as a place to carry on the "Is Steiner a racist?" debate. Any further discussion of it here will be deleted. But since, yet again, you claim you are no longer going to be participating in the forum, I guess ...

Re: Vote of confidence?

My point/argument was: you cannot just "get past" Steiner's racist views and forget about them, because he claimed that all the higher-level cognitions and ideas that he got to know through his clairvoyance abilities belong to the level of the "Absolute Idea" and was true in a f...

Re: Vote of confidence?

Maybe just let Eugene open a new thread with the mentioned academic papers - moderation free. We'll talk it out (wherever it goes) and everyone will be happy. PS: I'm not saying anything about the vote because I'll be in conflict of interests I guess. Yeah well, as already stated, 'been there, done...

Re: Vote of confidence?

The new material I attempted to bring to the attention of the participants was the racist views of Steiner and his anthroposophy that haven't been exposed and discussed before on this forum. The material was supported by two links to academic papers. Well, perhaps you were on one of your leaves of ...

Re: Vote of confidence?

you could say that about Ashvins incessant Dualist attacks as well. Are they really generating any new discussion? Well, clearly it's a case of subjective interpretation, as I don't feel it as 'attacking' at all (perhaps taken that way by those who feel attacked, which warrants some self-inquiry), ...

Re: Vote of confidence?

In my new topic I gave links to two academic papers exposing and discussing Steiner's racist views, and then noted that if anyone wishes to subscribe to anthroposophy and believes that Steiner indeed had clairvoyant abilities, then they would have to subscribe to his racist views. But if one wants ...
