Out of all the blogs I have encountered, I have rarely come across an initial entry devoted solely to an introduction. As this is my first blog, however, I think that such an entry would be at the very least useful for those who want a means of quickly judging whether this blog will be worth following.
Wordsmith Praxeology will primarily be a theory blog, though it will incorporate commentary on current events as well as attempts at predicting the outcomes of contemporary inventions & innovations (e.g. interpreting through Hjelmslev/McLuhan the implications of a new gadget). It will incorporate material from economics (particularly the Austrian school), schizoanalysis, psychoanalysis, politics, sociology, philosophy, and linguistics, though I also hope to utilize material from the sciences & history. It is my dearest hope not to theorize from an ivory tower, nor to be autobiographical, nor to even be overbearingly intellectual (I prefer to regard intellectualism as Freud did―a defense mechanism).
I would like to make this clear: I do not care about art, nor about pop culture, nor about ‘the subject’. If you are fixated on any of these things at the exclusion of everything else, I suggest that you leave. As well, I feel I ought to note that I do not want to be a professor; rather, I intend to become a market analyst. Though this latter may seem to be a trite autobiographical detail, I divulge it in order to express my concern not to become intellectually decadent, as well as my focus on the actual & the macroscopic, presided over by a capitalist mentality.
