The Allure of Things: Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy, Hardback Book

The Allure of Things: Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy Hardback

Edited by Roland Faber, Dr. Andrew Goffey

Part of the Bloomsbury Studies in Philosophy series

Description

The Allure of Things: Process and Object in Contemporary Philosophy contests the view that metaphysics is something to be overcome.

By focusing on process and object oriented ontology (OOO) and rejecting the privileging of human existence over the existence of non-human objects, this collection explores philosophy's concern with things themselves.

Interest in Latour, Stengers, Whitehead, Harman and Meillassoux has prompted a resurgence of ontological questions outside the traditional subject-object framework of modern critical thought.

This new collection consequently proposes a pragmatic and pluralist approach to 'modes of existence'.

Drawing together an international range of leading scholars, The Allure of Things fully covers the similarities between OOO and process philosophy, and is an essential addition to the literature on metaphysics.
