Can someone explain antipositivism? I don't understand what the point of research is if there's no true reality. Or am I missing the point?

Friend doesn't like that I'm reading critical theory or Marxist philosophy in general, wants me to watch New Discourses

To put it nicely, I haven't received much support for exploring left-wing beliefs in good faith. I've been encouraged to read more pro-capitalist authors, and critiques of postmodernists and critical theorists like James Lindsay's podcast on Gramsci.

So I'll admit that I used to be IDW-adjacent. Originally I believed that the Grievance Studies hoax was really fun. Then I saw the grift, when almost every issue they came out with always seemed to be about Critical Race Theory and sounded just like any other GOP politician. Some other friends who were also very 'concerned about CRT' went mask off about BLM and Trayvon Martin one day. (I also became more sympathetic to socialism before this, and feminism around the same time.)

At this point I think I may have *just* enough resilience to argue against the IDW, although I sense that they're employing the gish-gallop and making it the burden of proof for me to *disprove* the accusation I never made, which is stressful. Like, I have to wade through all of their accusations and counter them one by one, while they can just sit there and yell Postmodern Commie and Cultural Marxist at me.

So in interests of civil debate I listened the start of the Gramsci thing.

I think that the summary of Gramsci's experience, motivations for his idea of cultural hegemony and connections with Lenin and the revolutionary vanguard idea were pretty solid history. What is concerning is how he sweeps this under the rug Mussolini's persecution of Gramsci, and how the fascists and socialists were "not on the same side" as if this was some glib curiosity rather than fundamental context to *every* truth claim which followed about the purpose of critical theory.

A claim was made too that the Frankfurt School were familiar with Gramsci's work and made use of it despite no translation until 1970, which I cross-referenced here or on other groups a few weeks back and apparently was false. It was a 'big if true' claim for me which gave credence to any argument of international conspiracy, but I couldn't neatly parallel mass culture with cultural hegemony. Antipositivism was on the rise before Adorno even, and none of the editorial notes have discussed any correspondence between Gramsci or A+H.

I have yet to watch the next 45 minutes but it seems like he doesn't so much dislike post-war philosophy as much as left-wing politics in general? It'd be fine t be neutral on Mussolini if the video didn't end with calls to arms like "this is what

Fellow Types of MBTI, Hereโ€™s A List of 40+ Major Philosophical Schools of Thought; Q: Which One(s) Do You Personally Subscribe To and Why?
  • Just wanted to gain some additional insight / perspective here on what other fundamental perspectives, values, belief systems, etc. types hold to themselves personally, philosophically speaking.

  • Please state type if commenting and donโ€™t have personal communal flair yet.

  • These are just SOME of the various Schools of Thought (SoT) out there, if yours isnโ€™t listed here, tell us what it is!

  • These SoT generally will pertain towards the canon of Western Philosophy and not as much towards Eastern Philosophy, as such, most of these SoTs revolve around notions and philosophical areas including but not limited to: Logic, Epistemology, Metaphysics, Ontology, Value Theory, Philosophy of Science, Philosophy of the Mind, Existence, Reality, Cultural Studies / Theory, among others

  • Please be RESPECTFUL when conversing with others. This is a rather personal, meaningful topic I can only imagine, nobody is inherently โ€œrightโ€ or โ€œwrongโ€ here.

Cultural Marxism's Origins: How the Disciples of an Obscure Italian Linguist Subverted America

https://preview.redd.it/fhnmmq2wnbt51.jpg?width=400&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=cdd8426bee8de1cd24b04b7f562ce70e731922f5

You may have heard the terms โ€œCultural Marxism,โ€ โ€œCritical Theoryโ€ or โ€œFrankfurt Schoolโ€ bandied about. And while you might have an intuitive approximation of what these terms mean for America in the 21st century, thereโ€™s a good chance that you donโ€™t know much about the deep theory, where the ideology comes from and what it has planned for America โ€“ and the world.

The underlying theory here is a variant of Marxism, pioneered by early-20th-century Italian Marxist politician and linguist Antonio Gramsci. Gramscian Marxism is a radical departure from Classical Marxism. One does not need to endorse the Classical Marxism of Marx, Engels and others to appreciate the significant differences between the two. He is easily the most influential thinker that you have never heard of.

Whereas Classical Marxism located what has been called โ€œthe revolutionary subjectโ€ (the people who will overthrow capitalism and usher in socialism) within the broad working class, primarily in what is now the First World, Gramscism takes a very different approach. This approach underpins most of the social unrest that is gripping America and the West today. In a sense, we are living through the endgame of a Gramscian revolution.

There are two important diversions that Gramscism has from more traditional Marxist thought: First, that economics was the base of culture and politics. Second, philosophical materialism in the Marxist sense where reality is effectively formed by the means of economic production.

For Gramsci, culture was more important than either economics or politics. This was what needed to be changed for there to be a revolution. As such, the weapon to be used for revolution was not the economic might of an organized working class, but a โ€œlong march through the institutionsโ€ (a phrase actually coined by German Marxist Rudi Dutschke), whereby eve
