Toy Philosophy

Reza Negarestani has started a new blog, which I will encourage everyone to read. Reza is a unique and uniquely powerful thinker, and I cannot recommend his work highly enough. I suggest going and reading his inaugural post, but I’ll excerpt its final, tantalising lines here:

[T]here will be some posts on the ascesis of autodidacticism particularly for those who are bent to become philosophers and survive in a paraacademic world where the finances are always close to zero, standards are clouded by hatred of academia and rigor is still a taboo word yet nevertheless ideas do not reek of the stale dungeons of academia. As for the form and the style, well, the posts will oscillate between formal and informal, essay-form and rambling, preaching and scolding: In short, this blog’s mission is the comprehensive corruption of the youth.

  1. Nice information you shared here. A toy is an item that is used in play, especially one designed for such use. Playing with toys can be an enjoyable means of training young children for life in society. Different materials like wood, clay, paper, and plastic are used to make toys. Many items are designed to serve as toys, but goods produced for other purposes can also be used.
