Foreword, by Iain Hamilton Grant. Introduction Part 1: Negativity Part 2: Positivity Part 3: Normativity Afterword Bibliography Index
An engaging and accessible introduction to New Realism, as conceived and developed by the Italian philosopher, Maurizio Ferraris.
Maurizio Ferraris is a Professor of Philosophy at the University of Turin, Italy where he is also the Director of the LabOnt (Laboratory for Ontology).
This is a philosophy which is adequate to dealing with the push and pressure of the cosmos. In returning to perception on its own ontological terms, it opens up a philosophy that can matter to us. * Philosophy Now * The book will be indispensable to anyone seeking to understand this relatively unknown, continental realist philosopher, to the speculative realist community with whom Ferraris' thinking has many affinities, and of strong interest to those curious about the realist turn in continental philosophy in general ... This is the ideal text for new readers of the realist turn. * Review 31 *
