Speculations I

July 2010, ISBN: 978-0-557-57344-8

". . . the ultimate challenge for speculative realism—and for philosophy as a whole if this movement is indeed a product of our zeitgeist—is to clarify its position in the historical dialectic between the natural sciences and whatever responds to the name of ‘humanities’ (a term which clearly appears increasingly unfit to designate any philosophy that aims at overcoming the strictures of anthropocentric thought). A new kind of philosophy—whose label as ‘Post-Continental’ is defended by John Mullarkey—is attempting to place itself at that juncture between the radical science-skeptical positions that preceded it on one side and the danger of losing any identity and being swallowed whole by empirical science on the other."
