See, you remember how I characterized your behavior in our last interchange, when you continued to maintain that there was "nothing the least bit" postmodern about Robert Price,
See, I remember how you repeatedly mis
characterized what I wrote in that oh-so-pleasant exchange. (You're doing it again, here.) Because, see, if you go back and read what I wrote you'll see that I never claimed there's "'nothing the least bit" postmodern about Robert Price," period-full-stop. What I actually said
is that there's nothing the least bit postmodern about his work
Blithely ignoring that last word, you went off & googled up a couple posts from Price's web site in which he mentioned postmodern influences on his writing & scholarship, which you then trumpeted as proof that You Are Right! And I Am Wrong! And Not Only That, But I Obviously Do Not Understand What Postmodernism Is! Because Obviously I Think It's Terrible And Awful And Stuff! And various other bold claims regarding my lack of understanding of this & that.
All of which was astonishingly snotty and condescending, not to mention flat wrong. Because (again, and for I think the third time now) I did not claim that Robert Price has never in his entire career been influenced in any way whatsoever by *the*
major intellectual influence of the latter half of the twentieth century. Hell, who hasn't
been influenced by it?
What I claimed -- all
I claimed -- is that if you read his books or listen to what he has to say in debates and lectures and so forth, you find that his work -- his output -- is the antithesis of postmodern relativism. If anything he comes across as a pre-postmodernist, a quaint Enlightenment empiricist. A throwback. Whatever
his literary and scholarly influences might've been.
Engage on that, if you like. It's a debatable position. Or don't, I don't care. But either way, please stop misrepresenting what I wrote, and please stop making disparaging remarks about me based on your own carelessness & misunderstanding.
If memory serves, some other people chimed in as well. I leave it to others to decide if you were a brave champion of the truth or... whatever the opposite of that might be.
"Brave champion of the truth." Devastating. (BTW, take care to keep your hands firmly on those reins and your feet planted firmly in those stirrups, 'cause it is a looong fall off that-there high horse you're on.)
(Apologies to everyone else for the hijack.)
