This week instead of an interview on this or that facet of our Late Capitalist crisis you'll get the next lecture for the Diet Soap Philosophy Workshop on Hegel. This lecture takes the form of a conversation with my son Benjamin about Hegel's Phenomenology of Spirit as well as two films by the director David Fincher. We discuss "the Game" and "Fight Club" in an effort to understand SenseCertainty, Perception, and the force of the dialectic. Whether we arrive at self-consciousness by the end I can't say, however we do end up shooting ourselves in the face.

I want to thank all the current members of the Diet Soap Philosophy Writers Workshop as well as Terry Tapp who donated to the podcast. If you'd like to join next week's workshop, which so far is mostly just a two hour Talkshoe conversation on Hegel as well as membership to a secret Facebook Group, please become a subscriber. I have eight spaces open for paying members, and three spaces open if you feel you can't afford to pay but want to join in. Donations of $6 or more entitle you to a copy of my novella Wave of Mutilation (and I'll continue on reading that book on the podcast if anyone asks me to) and subscribers to the workshop will also receive a copy of that book while supplies last.

Next week I hope to be able to put together a podcast on Lefebvre and the Production of Space, however I am currently rewriting that novel for Tor that has been in the works since, hell, 1968 maybe? I promise to put something up next week, something other than another Rick Roderick lecture, and soon we'll be back to the regular flow.
