Anti-Thomist Tidbits: A Defense of the Sexual Revolutionary

A couple weeks ago, the philosopher Edward Feser–despite all I’ve written about him, I can’t call him my rival or nemesis, because he doesn’t know I exist–wrote a blog entry titled, “Psychoanalyzing the Sexual Revolutionary.” In that essay, he argues that “sexual revolutionaries”–those who see nothing wrong with homosexual sex, or trans people, or just […]

A Critique of David Oderberg’s Defense of Aristotle

Here’s the script for this video: Hey guys! Gunlord comin’ atcha once again with another critique of the so-called classical tradition in philosophy. This time, however, I’ll not be going up against Edward Feser. Rather, I’ll be taking on one of his good friends, David Oderberg. I’ll be providing a small critique of his article […]

GUEST POST from Tru: Several critiques of Edward Feser and Aristotelian philosophy

Hey guys! Here’s something a little different tonight. A new commenter by the name of tru recently happened upon my posts on Aquinas (specifically, my critiques of Edward Feser’s “The Last Superstition” and “Aquinas: A Beginner’s Guide”) and left some really thoughtful comments! You can see them in their original forms here: https://gunlord500.wordpress.com/2016/09/30/against-aquinas-an-in-depth-critique-of-natural-law-ethics-theology-and-metaphysics/comment-page-1/#comment-1341 https://gunlord500.wordpress.com/2016/06/14/a-little-late-but-not-too-late-my-book-review-of-edward-fesers-the-last-superstition/comment-page-1/#comment-1340 They […]

Fun with Final Causality

Another critique of Edward Feser’s Aristotelian-Thomist philosophy for you today, my friends. I must start this off with a bit of a disclaimer: If you happen to come across this post in the “edward feser” tag, you’ll notice it’s a response to a quote some other Tumblr user posted. Vagueblogging is in poor taste, I agree, […]

Against Aquinas: An In-Depth Critique of “Natural Law” Ethics, Theology, and Metaphysics

Hot damn! It’s been way too long, brothers and sisters, but I finally kept my promise. I’m back in the philosophy groove, following up on the last philosophy piece I wrote a while ago—Aristotle’s Curse, which was a critique of Edward Feser’s The Last Superstition. That essay had a lot of history-related analysis mixed in […]

A little late, but not too late: My Book Review of Edward Feser’s “The Last Superstition”

Whooooo-eee! I am pretty late for this entry, my friends–I meant to post it up last friday. But it ended up being sooooo big I had to delay it to be happy with it! I think you’ll see why, because it’s nearly 40 thousand words! But I think it’s worth it, so I hope you […]
