Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: The current fashions in both analytic and continental philosophy are staunchly antimetaphysical. There is supposedly no way to talk about the world itself - the philosopher is confined to antiseptic discussions of language, or of other modes of human access to the world. In this provocative work, Graham Harman expands the discussion from his previous book, Tool-Being, arguing for a theory of ''the carpentry of things'' - a more accessible way of viewing the world that incorporates ideas from Husserl, Levinas, Lingis, and other philosophers.

Inhaltsangabe: In Guerrilla Metaphysics, Graham Harman develops further the object-oriented philosophy first proposed in Tool-Being. Today?s fashionable philosophies often treat metaphysics as a petrified relic of the past, and hold that future progress requires an ever further abandonment of all claims to discuss reality in itself. Guerrilla Metaphysics makes the opposite assertion, challenging the dominant "philosophy of access" (both continental and analytic) that remains quarantined in discussions of language, perception, or literary texts. Philosophy needs a fresh resurgence of the things themselves—not merely the words or appearances themselves.
Once these themes are adapted to the needs of an object-oriented philosophy, what emerges is a brand new type of metaphysics—a "guerrilla metaphysics."
