A time has ended, the time of John Berger’s neoliberal moralist paranoiac soft assault and creepily insulting misreading of Benjamin and Adorno and the Frankfurt School Conspiracy theorists who invented fake news.
The philosopher that I met said this made him feel sad, that people thought this way about philosophy.
Sadder still would be the truth of what contemporary continental philosophy has really done?
It didn’t confuse anyone because no one read it.
And if you battled through it it was only hollow and hubristic. A department grasping for money like any other.
