Internet thugs thought that they had killed me - but some "objects" never die.
I haven't spoken to Quentin since 2014 (see HERE) when we were attempting to bring him over for our Philadelphia Summer School in Continental Philosophy, which resulted for me a chapter in THIS book (also much thanks is due to one Ray Brassier for making much of that and several opportunities possible). You can hear my opening remarks from that summer school HERE. John Caputo wound up graciously delivering the seminars, which you can download HERE. He discusses Meillassoux quite abit and in depth.
Perusing through After Nature blog one finds many, many posts covering Meillassoux. Some of which will appear in the (hopefully, one day) forthcoming Speculative Naturalism edited and polished into essays. This year I have a book review and two chapters in edited books to finish first though - so Speculative Naturalism keeps getting pushed back, and has been for at least three years now. In any case, you might find some of the following interesting, followed by some interesting quotes.
- "Contingency without Unreason" Joshua Ramey on C.S. Peirce, Deleuze, and Meillassoux"
- "Contingency and the New Era in Metaphysics: Hartshorne before Meillassoux on contingency?"
- "Prome-theism and Meillassoux's inverted Christic Hegelianism"
- "Peirce, Meillassoux, and absolute contingency: the case for an ontological fallibilism"
- "Transcendentalism and Correlationism"
- "Meillassoux: The new civil religion will be "Catholic rather than Protestant in spirit”
- "L'inexistence divine Meillassoux mediafire download
- "New translations from Meillassoux's L'inexistence divine"
- "Outside Thought: Meillassoux, Uexküll, Peirce"
- "Meillassoux and Process-theism: To Create and Destroy Even Becoming"
"The authentic tradition of immanence resides in the Platonic divine, and in the gods of Spinoza and Hegel, not in the 'philosophical atheism' of Heidegger."
- Quentin Meillassoux - The Divine Inexistence
"The most underrated thinkers in the history of philosophy are Reinhold, Jacobi, Maimon: the German thinkers who formed the junction between Kant and Fichte. With these philosophers, we draw close to the edge of what would soon become the volcano of German Idealism. It is a volcano that would not have been able to erupt without them, even though Schelling and Hegel esteemed them lightly."
- Quentin Meillassoux
"Speculative realism is an appellation designating in itself nothing important but with which I have become associated. It does not quite correspond to my enterprise since it also comprises the option that I seek to counter."
- Quentin Meillassoux
