Object-Oriented Philosophy I’ve been reading a number of early Latour articles recently, and good grief, he has always been funny. I was laughing out loud 10 or 15 times per article. Gerard de Vries once told me the reason he was drawn to Latour intellectually was because he was the only philosopher with a sense of humor. Well, there’s Žižek (not yet well-known in the period to which de Vries was referring) who also has stand-up delivery skills of a sort philosophy probably hasn’t seen in more than 400 years (since Giordano Bruno was burned alive in Rome).

The Pinocchio Theory The Pinocchio Theory Chris Beckett’s superb SF novel Dark Eden, which won the Arthur C Clarke Award last year, has finally been published in the United States.

Larval Subjects . I don’t have the time to flesh all of this out as I’m in the middle of grading, but I wanted to raise the question of just how much we’ve managed to think the materiality of power. Among us critical theorists it seems that the term “materialism” functions as a sort of shibbolith, a term d’art that everyone must embrace to participate in these discussions. The odd thing is that much of our critical theory– when evaluated from the standpoint of the tradition descended from Democritus –doesn’t look very materialist. We spend a lot of time analyzing discourses, language, ideologies, and institutions, investigating how these things exercise control and power, yet oddly these things don’t look particularly material. Indeed, they look downright idealist when you think about it. The premise seems to be that if we can just debunk these things then people will change their ways.

I apologize in advance for the many bracketing of the French, but this was only to render the distinctions between langue and langage clear (as well as pouvoir and puissance).
