the first forum of the year will be to finish up the Wolfendale paper (pages 344-366). In case anyone missed it Terence Blake was kind enough to post this document to aid our various understandings of OOO and it’s critics.
The meeting should be in UL102 14:15-15:45.
this week sees the last forum of the year, the topic I’m afraid is nothing particularly seasonal, being just a return to Peter Wolfendale’s critique of object oriented ontology (after a brief refreshing hiatus to Graham Harman).
The reading is pages 320-345 in the pdf.
Seasonal topic or not it is the forum Christmas special and as such takes place on Wednesday at 14:15 in the usual room. After this we can repair to the tower bar for refreshment.
best (Christmas) wishes
to facilitate an understanding of the Wolfendale paper I thought a quick dose of Harman’s ‘Quadruple Object’ was in order. To this extent I suggest we read this section of it for next week.
This meeting should hopefully be in UL102 14:15-15:45.
this week I thought we could begin to look at Wolfendale’s review and critique of object oriented ontolog: The Noumenon’s New Clothes’.
The paper is quite long so I suggest we read the first 31 pages this week and see how that goes. The meeting is in the usual place UL102 14:15-15:45 and the reading is available here.
