Shaviro: Harman on Metzinger

One of my favorite Shaviro posts is here.

There is lots to love, or maybe because I just happen to agree with most everything Shaviro says and wish I could communicate it so effortlessly.  Points I like:

1.  critique of scientism and eliminatism
2.  recognition that "armchair" philosophy (anything not backed up by science) is indispensable
3.  description of an event of perception as a reification of the process
4.  recognition that scientistic philosophy contradicts itself when it belittles "folk" belief while championing science
