Between Naturalism and Rationalism: A New Realist Landscape

Journal of Critical Realism 11 (3):361-387 (2012)
This review essay attempts to present a coherent and reasonably unitary picture of the contemporary ‘speculative turn’ in continental philosophy as charted in Levi Bryant, Nick Srnicek and Graham Harman, eds, The Speculative Turn: Continental Realism and Materialism (2011). Avoiding a more objective yet more anodyne chapter by chapter summary, I paint an intentionally synoptic view by selecting some common concerns of the authors involved, and group them under five ‘core themes’. Throughout, I try to keep open the comparative channel with the realist tenets of critical realism, and conclude vouching for the necessity for more bridge-building works to appear in the future
