    Acid Archives - Postcapitalist Desire: The Final Lectures of Mark Fisher (Full Episode)

    Acid Archives - Postcapitalist Desire: The Final Lectures of Mark Fisher (Full Episode)

    Author, blogger, and photographer Matt Colquhoun joins us (as promised) for a first look at a compilation of last lectures given by Mark Fisher at Goldsmiths in 2016.  The lecture series on postcapitalist desire intends to explore the seemingly unsurpassable milieu of global capitalism and its pervasive affectivity.  Through figures like Marcus, Lukacs, Lyotard, Marx, and Deleuze and Guattari, Fisher explores possibilities for our collective extrication from capital. In the interview, we reflect on Fisher's acumen as a teacher and mentor as we take on elements of the project he left behind.

    Omnicide 2: A Philosophy of Doom with Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh

    Omnicide 2: A Philosophy of Doom with Jason Bahbak Mohaghegh

    Jason Bahbek Mohaghegh joins us to discuss Omnicide 2, out soon from Urbanomic.

    From Urbanomic/MIT Press: An infernal catalogue of manic visionaries, inspired by the poetry of the Middle East.

    In a new work in which conceptual elaboration, storytelling, and poetics are fused in the infernal heat of the desert, the cycle of Omnicide draws to a close with a philosophy of doom, deception, and the game, plunging headlong into the inevitable, the fatal, and the infinite.

    A series of controlled combustions fuelled by fragments drawn from the poetry and literature of the Middle-East, Omnicide II introduces us to a new cast of manic visionaries, from the Selemaniac to the Crystallomaniac, the Bibliomaniac to the Aeromaniac. Amid war cries and lullabies, mages, wolves and pelicans, sabers and crystals, drones and soul-stealers, and in settings ranging from opium dens to Qatari luxury hotels, Mohaghegh's unique style and methodology, dizzying breadth of references, and implacable will to follow the most deranging lines of thought and evoke the most startling images, draw the reader into territories disturbing and unfamiliar, atmospheres delicate and grotesque, moods morbid yet life-affirming.

    The utterly absorbing music of Mohaghegh's writing both lulls and disquiets—a contemporary Necronomicon, an inexhaustible treasury of recipes for disaster, catastrophe, ruination and destruction, all in the name of the most intense creation.

    Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream" with Jim

    Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream" with Jim

    The Acid Horizon crew are joined by friend of the show and history podcaster Jim to discuss the philosophical horrors at the heart of Harlan Ellison's "I Have No Mouth, and I Must Scream", a tale about planetary war, cybernetic takeover, and the cruelty that fills the void where creativity is absent. We begin with an overview of Ellison's life and work, before reading I Have No Mouth through the works of figures such as Foucault, Hegel, Nietzsche, Tiqqun, Aquinas, Deleuze, and many more!

    Capitalist Realism: Is There Still No Alternative? with Alex Niven

    Capitalist Realism: Is There Still No Alternative? with Alex Niven

    To celebrate new Zer0 Classics edition of Mark Fisher’s Capitalist Realism, Adam and Will spoke to Alex Niven about his new introduction. Alex joins us in reflecting upon the historical context of the book in the midst of New Labour's Thatcherism, the student riots, and the global financial crisis, as well as exploring the key concepts of the book such as Market Stalinism, Depressive Hedonia, and the spectre of the Marxist Supernanny of postcapitalist desire. As Austerity and neoliberalism try to find a second wind in the midst of global crisis, we ask, how do we envision the emancipated future?

    Dialectics of the Gods: Deleuze, Hillman, Jung, Schelling, and Hegel

    Dialectics of the Gods: Deleuze, Hillman, Jung, Schelling, and Hegel

    Grant Maxwell is the author of Integration and Difference: Constructing a Mythical Dialectic, A book which confronts the perennial problem of opposition in philosophy with respect to the notions of integration and difference. This is a robust work which covers many figures in Philosophy from Hegel to William James to Isabel Stegners. In this discussion we delve into the sections of the book that specifically concern the relationship between Deleuze and American archetypal psychologist James Hillman and the work of F.W.J. Schelling.

I hope his stupid cabin burns down

if mark fisher is who inspired and helped create these people then I think it’s objectively good that he’s dead. when it comes to while male supremacist christian nationalist podcast networks like this one i think the world is perfectly fine with more dead authors that posture as leftists while perpetuating fascism
