Two Articles and Potential Buh-Bye

    I'm thinking of migrating away from blogspot quite soon, since the comments section has apparently been taken over by Nick Land's A.I space, and the whole thing just sucks basically. I'm not sure whether I find blogging nearly as stimulating as I did before though, since most 'live proto-philosophizing' seems to happen through facebook now. Guess we're back to where we started, with the dialog-form. That said, I'm not sure I will even decide to open up a new blog; although I might just to have a medium to vent off any provisional thoughts. This might actually be the last post I write here.

On a happier note, two articles of mine were published this month. The former, titled 'Realism and Representation', appears in the excellent new issue of
Speculations and develops an outline for my basic take on speculative realism and the 'ontological turn', outlining a Sellarsian defense of representation. The second came out in the International Journal of Badiou Studies, and is a somewhat lengthy piece discussing Badiou's attempts to reinvigorate the dialectic by proposing a rationalist materialism, advancing what I take to be a pretty strong critique of his view. Both essays will probably end up in some form in the monograph piece I am preparing. That beast is clocking at around 105k words now, and still has some bit to go. Hope it finds a way out. With that said, here go the links:

IJBS - Towards a Rationalist Materialism: Plato, Hegel, Badiou

Thanks to those few, scattered souls that gave this dumpster a read every now and then.
