Speculative realism appears to be exploding in the blogosphere, with a number of great new blogs and resources appearing within just the past week. First up is a group blog featuring Scu from Critical Animal, Craig from Theoria, and Greg from Animal Obscura. Their collaborative blog, The Inhumanities, is allied with speculative realism in its attack on anthropocentrism, and is currently undertaking a book event on Matthew Calarco’s Zoographies: The Question of the Animal from Heidegger to Derrida – a book that explicitly raises some of the ethical questions posed by speculative realism.
Elsewhere, Paul Ennis has started a new blog devoted to the object-oriented wing of speculative realism, Object Oriented Blogging. It offers a number of helpful pointers for people new to speculative realism, and promises to be a great space for thinking through the constellation of philosophies floating around OOP.
Finally, the wiki-like site, AAAARG.org has created a page devoted to speculative realism. You’ll have to sign up to get full-access, but it offers a number of books and articles not available on our own Resources page. The actual Wikipedia page for speculative realism is still pretty woeful (and apparently up for deletion!), but hopefully the texts available here and elsewhere make up for that lack. [UPDATE: Michael Austin has graciously provided a thorough update of the Wikipedia page, and it looks great.]
Also a few other new blogs writing on speculative realism issues:
