    continent. 1.1 : 3-13. / 0/ – Introduction I want to propose, as a trajectory into the philosophically weird, an absurd theoretical claim and pursue it, or perhaps more accurately, construct it as I point to it, collecting the ground work behind me like the Perpetual Train from China Mieville's Iron Council which puts down track as it moves reclaiming it along the way. The strange trajectory is the following: Kant's critical philosophy and much of continental philosophy which has followed, (...)

    Theorists such as Jussi Parikka, Jakob von Uexküll, Eugene Thacker, Sadie Plant, and others have utilized the figure of the insect as a particularly salient way of reading the materialization of information. Certain affinities of insect anatomy and behavior with technology aesthetically collude with technologies of communication. But is such use of the insect figure merely metaphorical, or does it drag with it other aspects of the insect body and its bearing on the physicality of information? In either case, the (...)

    Lamps, Rainbows and Horizons: Spatializing Knowledge in Naturphilosophical Epistemology.Ben Woodard - 2016 - Angelaki 21 (4):23-41.
    In the present essay I address the apparently problematic status of epistemology in F.W.J. Schelling’s work. Given the overblown emphasis on Schelling’s anti-Kantianism, there would seem to be little hope in articulating anything like a theory of knowledge in Schelling’s thought. For the sake of brevity I emphasize knowledge’s spatial and navigational functions in Schelling’s texts. For Schelling, the navigational is that which locates, and constructively constrains, the capacity of the subject to synthesize. This is accomplished, I argue, via a (...)
