Product Description


"Iain Hamilton Grant's book Philosophies of Nature after Schelling proposes that we think about nature as irreducible to the entire dichotomous game of self and world, idealism and realism. Indeed, Grant argues for a reconsideration of "nature" in terms of the classical notion of phusis this is a 'physics' that is less concerned with quasi-verifiable, smallest units of matter and more a physics in the sense of a dynamical and ideational flux that pervades the very correlation of self and world, idea and thing." -Eugene Thacker, Leonardo/ISAST, 2009

Absolutely Stunning 31 July 2012
By D. Fineman - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Why is not this book on every shelf? On every list? In depth, care, scholarship, originality, and insight, this study is one of the best avaiable on any major philosopher. It rescues Schelling from an obscurity that seems possible only because, in the main, the study of philosophy is nothing other than intellectual fashion and weak works on hot topics garner more attention that marvels like this. That the rise of object oriented ontology - OOO -should leave Grant -- of the 4 original preseners at Goldsmith's in 2007 -- the least studied is absurd. We are not historically minded and instead want the hot idea, but Schelling's ideas are hot as Grant makes clear in his encounter -- a secondary concern of this volume -- with Deleuze. Indeed, much of what is now emerging in OOO or environmental philosophy finds a powerful version in Schelling and one more in touch with the longer philosophical tradition.
