    Against Continuity: Gilles Deleuze's Speculative Realism.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2018 - Edinburgh University Press.
    Against Continuity is the first book to demonstrate that the beating heart of Gilles Deleuze's philosophy is a systematic ontology of irreducible, singular entities. This requires a radical break with decades of Deleuzian orthodoxy, according to which Deleuze's metaphysics revolves around the dissolution of discrete entities into a continuous world of flows and events.With reference to all of Deleuze's work, including published and untranslated seminars, as well as the recently published 'Lettres et autres textes', Arjen Kleinherenbrink critically compares Deleuze's ontology (...)

    The Ontology of Social Objects: Harman’s Immaterialism and Sartre’s Practico-Inert.Simon Gusman & Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2018 - Open Philosophy 1 (1):79-93.
    In his recent Immaterialism, Graham Harman develops a theory of social objects based on his object-oriented ontology. Whereas some of the more mainstream theories in the humanities would dissolve such objects into their material constituents or their various effects on others, object-oriented social theory theorizes them as inert, resilient entities with a private reality that exceeds their components and actions. Harman’s theory focuses on what social entities are qua objects, and consequently says little about their specificity as social objects. A (...)

    The Two Times of Objects: A Solution to the Problem of Time in Object-Oriented Ontology.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2019 - Open Philosophy 2 (1):539-551.
    One of the main criticisms of object-oriented ontology in its current formulation by Graham Harman is that it includes a notion of time that, upon closer inspection, renders the overall theory inconsistent. I argue that while this is indeed the case, Harman’s notion of time can be modified in a way that leaves the framework of object-oriented ontology intact. More specifically, Harman’s theory of time as a single surface tension between sensual objects and their qualities should be expanded into a (...)

    Territory and Ritornello: Deleuze and Guattari on Thinking Living Beings.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2015 - Deleuze and Guatarri Studies 9 (2):208-230.
    The concepts of territory and ritornello cannot be separated from one another, despite the fact that scholarship tends to restrict the former to discussions of politics and the latter to discussions of art. Deleuze and Guattari deploy the combination of territory and ritornello, along with associated notions such as rhythm, milieu, counterpoint and force, as a method to describe and understand the formation, existence and relations of living beings. They understand ‘life’ to also include a variety of nonorganic entities, such (...)

    Metaphysical Primitives: Machines and Assemblages in Deleuze, DeLanda, and Bryant.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2020 - Open Philosophy 3 (1):283-297.
    Some variants of Object-Oriented Ontology define entities in terms of their powers. Such variants are rooted in Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari’s theory of “machinic assemblages”. This article asks whether such entities can be metaphysical primitives with regard to similarity and change. This is the case if no further existents are needed to account for these two features of reality. According to Levi Bryant’s machine-oriented ontology, entities defined in terms of powers are such primitives. According to Manuel DeLanda’s assemblage theory, (...)

    Fields of Sense and Formal Things: The Ontologies of Tristan Garcia and Markus Gabriel.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2018 - Open Philosophy 1 (1):129-142.
    A striking feature of the relatively new philosophical genre of speculative realism is that it includes theories that explicitly seek to bridge or overcome the divide between analytic and continental philosophy. Two such theories are Markus Gabriel’s ontology of fields of sense and Tristan Garcia’s ontology of formal things. Both theories hold that all entities - be they physical, mental, fictional, technical, or otherwise - are equally and irreducibly real. This article first describes the core features of these ontologies. This (...)

    Time, Duration and Freedom – Bergson's Critical Move Against Kant.Arjen Kleinherenbrink - 2014 - Diametros 39:203-230.
    Research into Bergson’s philosophy downplays a key development in his first work, Time and free will. It is there that Bergson explicitly opposes himself to Kant by arguing that succession is not a temporal concept, but a spatial one. This is the crucial point of departure for Bergson’s entire philosophy, one that allows him to radically dismiss Kant’s notion of freedom in favor of one based on duration and multiplicity. This text has two aims. Firstly to add to Bergson scholarship (...)
