Product description

Review

"
In "Hyperobjects", Timothy Morton brings to bear his deep knowledge of a wide array of subjects to propose a new way of looking at our situation, which might allow us to take action toward the future health of the biosphere. Crucially, the relations between Buddhism and science, nature and culture, are examined in the fusion of a single vision. The result is a great work of cognitive mapping, both exciting and useful.
" --Kim Stanley Robinson, author of "Shaman", "2312", and the Mars trilogy

'Hyperobjects: Philosophy and Ecology After the End of the World', is quite simply brilliant. Morton offers much-needed and refreshing insight into global warming in particular - a must read!

5.0 out of 5 stars New Thinking in Philosophy 25 Oct. 2015
By Rod Hemsell - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
There is a dynamic and creative movement in philosophy today, generally identifying itself as speculative realism, which has grown out of the most radical thinking of the 20th century in phenomenology, process philosophy, and French postmodernism and which is fluorishing in England and America in the English language. Timothy Morton's version is strikingly original while remaining well-grounded in the work of Bergson, Heidegger, and Deleuze, with the added value of his passionate and inspired awareness of the ecological crises facing humanity. This is really philosophy worth reading.

5.0 out of 5 stars Morton Delivers Vital Perspectives on Massive Phenomena 9 Nov. 2015
By R. Burnier - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Absolutely essential perspectives on our ability (or lack thereof) of absorbing complex things into our consciousness that are nonetheless as real as the nose in front of your face. Our survival depends on grasping the meaning of what Morton addresses. It is very much in question whether we really can. This writing could be seen as a part of the OOO canon as it stands so far.

1.0 out of 5 stars Meandering and inefficient 8 Jun. 2016
By Ecologist - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Based on some comments on line, I thought this book would be a useful exploration of environmental ideas that have widespread subscription, yet little understanding by its subscribers. Sustainable development, mass extinction, climate change, and ecomodernism are examples.

As a natural scientist who believes the separation of knowledge into natural and social science and the humanities needs to eliminated, this sounded promising. Environmental ideas are syntheses of all three ways of knowing, so I was excited by the author's approach.

The natural science, however, is, in most places, extraordinarily weak and often wrong. The use of the personal and popular, described by the author as devices for the exposition, is actually a mask for what the author cannot resolve or treat efficiently. Sometimes they seem almost deliberate distractions, like using display to distract from lack of coherent content.

I really cannot recommend this book, though I admit that perhaps it simply does not work for me. Clearly others like it.

I see nothing new or sensible in hyper objects. Indeed, it makes a muddle of important constructs of pressing importance and that is hard to tolerate.

5.0 out of 5 stars Post-end of the world Philosophy 3 Dec. 2015
By asli telli - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Though delving into the "end of the world" creates a certain fear and stigma at first, hyperobjects seem to create interesting alternatives for freshening up bad memories of the never-ending present future.

4.0 out of 5 stars Revolutionary and disappointing by turns 29 Jan. 2015
By Cuthbertson - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The idea of a hyperobject is, I think, a vital one. Morton makes a compelling case for this, and I have no doubt that there is good philosophical work to be done with this concept. The trouble, I think, is that he proceeds to overdo it. His writing is dense, and that is to be expected with such strange and technically complex ontology. At times, however, I realised that it was vastly more Byzantine than it needed to be. Philosophy of all strains should aim at clarity, not performance. Morton, disappointingly, cannot help but perform.
