It’s been a while since my last post, but since our Theory Group is taking its annual summer break, I hope nobody will mind if I use this space to post a link to a recent blog update I think is well worth reading. Levi Bryant, one of the premiere new philosophers of the “Speculative Realism/ Object-Oriented Ontology” movement, runs a great blog called “Larval Subjects.” (A lot of OOO stuff takes place online — a media phenomenon of some substantial interest, I think.) One of his recent postings was on the politics (or lack thereof) of speculative realism. As this is a question that has increasingly preyed on my mind — e.g. does the move from discourse-oriented theory to object-oriented theory mean we are leaving behind or abandoning ideology critique? — I want to provide the link to Bryant’s response: http://larvalsubjects.wordpress.com/2012/07/18/rsi-discursivity-critique-and-politics/.

What do you think?
