About this topic
Summary Speculative Realism refers to a trend within continental philosophy that was launched at an April 2007 workshop at Goldsmiths College, University of London featuring Ray Brassier, Iain Hamilton Grant, Graham Harman, and Quentin Meillassoux. Central to Speculative Realism is its critique of "correlationism," Meillassoux's term for the continental tendency to avoid the question of reality outside thought in favor of a reflection on the conditions of the thought-world correlate. Competing versions of Speculative Realism include Harman's object-oriented philosophy and Meillassoux's speculative materialism, along with Brassier's eliminativist position and Grant's Deleuzo-Schellingian vitalism.
Key works Brassier et al 2007 is a transcript of the initial 2007 Speculative Realism workshop. Meillassoux's critique of correlationism can be found in Meillassoux 2008. Harman's object-oriented philosophy is summarized most recently in Harman 2011. Brassier's position is explained in Brassier 2007 and Grant's in Grant 2006. Further background information about Speculative Realism can be found in Harman 2011, Harman's critical study of Meillassoux.
Introductions For an anthology of writings by Speculative Realists and closely related thinkers, see Bryant et al 2011. A short introduction to Meillassoux's position can be found in Meillassoux 2007, and a book-length introduction to the object-oriented variant of Speculative Realism is Bryant 2011.

    What can Dungeons & Dragons teach us about the being of beings? This article argues that Dungeons & Dragons introduces us to a world composed of objects or entities, where the being of objects is defined not by their qualities, but rather by their powers, capacities or affects. Drawing on the thought of Spinoza, Deleuze and Molnar, objects are seen to be defined by what they can do or their capacities to act, such that qualities are effects of these acts. (...)

    Since Kant, philosophy has been obsessed with epistemological questions pertaining to the relationship between mind and world and human access to objects. In The Democracy of Objects Bryant proposes that we break with this tradition and once again initiate the project of ontology as first philosophy. Drawing on the object-oriented ontology of Graham Harman, as well as the thought Roy Bhaskar, Gilles Deleuze, Niklas Luhman, Aristotle, Jacques Lacan, Bruno Latour and the developmental systems theorists, Bryant develops a realist ontology that (...)

    From one end of his philosophical work to the other, Gilles Deleuze consistently described his position as a transcendental empiricism. But just what is transcendental about Deleuze’s transcendental empiricism? And how does his position fit with the traditional empiricism articulated by Hume? In Difference and Givenness , Levi Bryant addresses these long-neglected questions so critical to an understanding of Deleuze’s thinking. Through a close examination of Deleuze’s independent work--focusing especially on Difference and Repetition-- as well as his engagement with thinkers (...)

    In the Kritik der reinen Vernunft (1781) Kant introduced the transcendental method on a precarious footing and he never shied away from the fact that the transcendental method is structured, and I mean it in the most direct sense possible, aporetically. The aporetic element, the unstable core within Kantian thought, is the distinction between phenomenal and noumenal content in the chapter entitled "On the ground of the distinction [Unterscheidung] of all objects [Gegenstände] in general into phenomena and noumena" (Kant A236/B295-A260/B315).

Pitted against the dominant antirealist and transcendental continental hegemony Ennis argues that continental thinking must establish an alliance between metaphysics, speculation, and realism if we are to truly get back to the things themselves.

    Speculative realism has, over the course of its rapid and controversial emergence in the past decade, been frequently criticized from the perspective of historical materialism, for its putative reliance on abstraction and eschewal of a sufficiently rigorous ideological alignment. This paper takes such critiques as a starting point for an examination of the contributions recent thought in the area of speculative realism has to offer the study of the humanities – specifically, the study of literature and literary history. In particular, (...)

    The context for these interviews was a seminar [Peter Gratton] conducted on speculative realism in the Spring 2010. There has been great interest in speculative realism and one reason Gratton surmise[s] is not just the arguments offered, though [Gratton doesn't] want to take away from them; each of these scholars are vivid writers and great pedagogues, many of whom are in constant contact with their readers via their weblogs. Thus these interviews provided an opportunity to forward student questions about their (...)
