The Universe of Things

Steven Shaviro

University of Minnesota Press

This book takes a new look at the philosophy of Alfred North Whitehead (1861–1947) in the light of a number of recent developments in continental philosophy that can be grouped under the rubrics of “speculative realism” and (to a lesser extent) “new materialism.” The book seeks to relate the divergent programs and goals of these new strains in philosophical thought both positively and negatively to Whitehead’s own project.

Keywords:   Speculative Realism, Graham Harman, Quentin Meillassoux, Alfred North Whitehead, Continental Philosophy, Post-structuralist Theory, Aesthetics, Panpsychism
