Philosophy Forum 05/01/2018: Peter Wolfendale: The Noumenon’s New Clothes

Dear All

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.

Philosophy Forum 9/11/2017-Timothy Morton: Hyperobjects

Dear All

following last week’s re-examination of object-oriented-ontology (OOO as it likes to be known) via Morton, the forum will now try to look a little deeper at his notion of a ‘hyperobject’.

To this end I propose we read part of his handily titled book on exactly this topic (Hyperobjects, philosophy and ecology after the end of the world). I propose we try to read the first two actual sections of the book as opposed to the introduction (which could be optional reading). These are entitled ‘Viscosity’ and ‘Nonlocality’ and run from pages 29-49.

The meeting will be in the usual UL102 14:15-15:45 and the reading is available here:  ‘Hyperobjects
