Following from my last post I want to argue that German Idealism is a project that takes the genesis of the abstract as engine and problem for philosophical practice and for practice taken more generally. Assuming Fichte, Schelling, and Hegel accept Kant’s critique of dogmatic metaphysics but want to evade his methodological dualism as a […]


Jon Cogburn has posted a nice things to look for kind of post (but more thoughtful than that really) in regards to continental philosophy. The texts that he links to confirm some broader issues that I (and others) have been circling around recently: 1 – The legacy of Hegel as something more than a theory […]


[The following is a post based on my paper for the German Idealism Workshop (which was just rejected...c'est la vie!) and in many ways foregrounds issues that Iain Grant discussed this past week in Pittsburgh. I will follow this post with a discussion of Grant's lectures] There is a fairly well known saying that the […]


Recently I have been thinking about the collapse of metaphysics and ontology. It seems they were once clearly distinct but have become almost interchangeable. One the one hand metaphysics is the broader school of issues historically deemed to be beyond the physical which eventually became (due to the progression of modern science) that which is […]


Steven Shaviro has an excellent and length response to my previous two posts (and the subsequent discussion) here. Bogost, Bryant, and Harman have responded to Shaviro. Knowledge Ecology has a summary up as well here. And Jason from Immanent Transcendence has a recent (and very gracious) response here to several of my questions here. Update […]


Several responses to my last post are here at Knowledge Ecology, here at Immanence, here at Footnotes 2 Plato, here at After Nature, and at Immanent Transcendence. I doubt I can give each the response it deserves but, at least to keep the conversation going, I have several questions/comments in regards to each response. For […]


One of the rhetorical disadvantages to philosophies of process, or dispositions, or becoming (or however else you want to couch them) is that there’s a fuzziness that there doesn’t seem to be an urge to clarify. Part of this is the fact that these philosophies are non-common sensical and are therefore ontologically fuzzy – one […]


Having no talks for several months now blogging should pick up again…the Return of Metaphysics conference was the highlight of the last few months. The talks were very strong across the board and Speculative Realism (either directly or indirectly) was a constant (except for the Heidegger panel) though mostly with Meillassoux as a target for […]


Several interesting conferences coming up: 1 – The schedule for the next Dundee conference on 21st century idealisms is here. 2-The schedule for the Cyclonopedia event in NYC on March 11th is here. 3-The first issue of continent (an onlline journal started by some fellow EGSers) is available online here. I have a short piece […]


Deleuze and Guattari’s work has become a theoretical edifice which entraps as much as it seems to project – a neuronal tarpit. D and G’s work is a kind of over-inclusive middle stretching in an infinite horizon (bwo, plane of immanence, rhizomatic carpet, etc). Over inhaling too much laterality has resulted in various forms of […]
