Re: Criticism

The other thing I will say is that he showed up here with the mentality that everyone else has something to learn from him and he has nothing to learn from anyone else.

Re: Message from BK

Re: Message from BK

Right, so a discussion whether Analytic Idealism perpetuates tha Kanticn Divide or not, is a good example of a topic belonging to the BK subforum.

Re: Message from BK

I agree this place has been a tad unbalanced lately, both in terms of topics and levels of participation (~45% of the posts is from the top 3 posters). BUT, I wouldn't get my hopes up finding a better place where views are being discussed with such passion and tenacity without letting it implode int...
