Strange Mereology


Check out Levi Bryant’s presentation, “Being Is Flat: The Strange Mereology of Object-Oriented Ontology,” from last week’s Object-Oriented Ontology symposium in Atlanta. It’s an excellent summary (lucid and concise) of the key issues that emerge from the encounter between actor-network theory and the speculative realist version of Heidegger (and I’m sure there are some other influences in there as well, possibly Deleuze via DeLanda). Make sure to run it in full screen mode.
