What Is History? The eonic model changes our views of history completely

Carr’s old chestnut classic can loan us its title for a quick redirection to the eonic effect, and its own question, what is history? In fact, we can examine the eonic effect and still not fully answer. But contemporary culture is so stuck on Darwinism that it is almost hopeless to break through the tenacity of social brainwashing. Even marxists are frozen and they are supposed to be experts in theory and ideology.

I would be happy for a citation and critique as above at the link, but my take on world history is stuck/censored by the current cancel culture of the professoriat, so-called, a gang of idiots non-pareil that has allowed Darwinism to dominate the universities for over a century of muddle. Warning then: professors are assembly line university idiots/zombies programmed to uphold social darwinism. Thanks, guys. (the attempt at postmodern critique is interesting enough, but postmodern periodization is an illusion, even if its critiques might be relevant enough.)

The eonic model suffers some of the criticism laid out for Carr. Continue reading “What Is History? The eonic model changes our views of history completely”

‘The Dawn of Everything’ gets human history wrong | Climate & Capitalism

The eonic model can clarify this debate but at the same one has to go through a large amount of new research on the issues of human evolution, even given the inability of established scholars to get past the paradigm of Darwinian. The failure to see that Darwinism gets evolution wrong threatens both sides of this research. Even so there is much that is of great interest. Short of funds, I got a Kindle version of the book, then got a refund since some of the works cited in the review are important to consider first. Maybe in spring I will get The Dawn of Everything. But works by Christopher Boehm and Sarah Hrdy, and several others, are suddenly essential reading, though I am pressed to be able to afford them just at the moment.
Many classic questions, such as the issue of inequality, the rise of the state are treated with kid gloves in my accounts of world history because I don’t want to burden the eonic model with dated cliches. The eonic model is compatible in some ways with both sides of some of these debates. The challenge to Graeber et al. is pretty severe, the book is an odd puzzle.

Is inequality inevitable? Is freedom just a choice? Two materialist critiques of a widely-praised book.

 Despite its interest Graeber’s take on world history is still unable to get past Darwinism, making its instantly obsolete

The failure to get past Darwininism makes Graeber et al.’s book instantly obsolete. Beyond that the question of evolution lurks behind the enigma of world history in the data of the so-called eonic model: the structure of world history can now be seen in the hints/indications of the eonic effect and model.
