Object-Oriented Philosophy. 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.

The Pinocchio Theory

I wrote briefly about it on this blog a while ago; but now that it is generally available here, I thought I should present the longer version of my comments, which I presented at several conferences, but which I have not previously published. So here goes. Chris Beckett’s science fiction novel Dark Eden was published in 2012. It won the 2013 Arthur C. Clarke award for the best science fiction novel published in the UK in the previous year. Dark Eden can best be described as a book about deferred and repeated origins. Nonetheless, I don’t think that these sorts of doubts and qualifications really apply in the case of Dark Eden. In Dark Eden, therefore, Chris Beckett tells us the story of an origin that we already know to be a repetition and a regression. In this way, science fiction can be both utopian and dystopian.

Acerca de « Vacío

Soy Licenciado en Filosofía (2008) y Magister en Ciencia Política y Gobierno (2012) por la Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. Actualmente me encuentro cursando el doctorado en Ciencia Política en la Universidad de Toronto, en el área de Teoría Política. Me áreas de interés son, principalmente, la teoría política, la teoría social, la filosofía contemporánea, el pensamiento peruano y latinoamericano. En el campo de la ciencia política, el Estado creo que constituye mi principal interés aquí: su construcción, modernización, burocratización y fortalecimiento. La idea del blog es crear un espacio para escribir (generar algo así como una “ἕξις para la escritura”), además de poder discutir y compartir. ¿Por qué “Vacío” es el nombre propio del ser? Cualquier duda o sugerencia es bienvenida ¡No dudes en escribirme!
