I Have Translated Academic Abracadabra into Plain English and Found Out a Lot About Their Personal Struggles
In this video American philosophers talk about notions of ‘action’ and ‘experience’. However, when their contributions are translated in plain English, a whole lot is revealed about their personal struggles.
First: watch the video. Did you get any of that? Probably not. Let me translate it for you and then watch it again. Then judge for yourself.
in order of appearance:
Douglas R. Anderson — Being different, I have had a lot of set backs. One day I was molested by a cow.
Martin Jay — Being pragmatic means being more social. Pragmatists like myself get things done.
Anne C. Rose — My colleagues don’t accept my ideas.
Bruce Willshire — I don’t understand Descartes.
Vincent Colapietro — I feel like a spectator. I am lonely and sometimes social. But not so often.
Richard Rorty — I talk about language to avoid talking about my feelings.
