What is the Church's position on Nick Land?


#1

I was wondering what the Church’s (or even the Pope’s) position on Nick Land is. With him being the superior philosopher of Capital and pretty amazing critique of Kant (in a sense Land could be said to be the only true living Kantian philosopher) I’m at odds as to what the church would say on the matter.


#2

The Church generally doesn’t take positions on individuals, only teachings.


#3

Then what would we think the church would make on Land’s teachings?


#4

Can you give a quick summary of his arguments please. Thanks.


#5

I mean, I can tell you what I think of him.

I don’t think I can really speak for the totality of his writings and what their significance for an orthodox Catholic might be.


#6

What do you think of him.


#7

The Church doesn’t have an official position on every single thing.


#8

Are we looking in the wrong direction? What does Land believe about Catholicism? Any problems there?

If Land’s views are about some form of utilitarianism, what is a particular person’s worth, then his views would need to be scrutinized closely for non-Catholic values.
