This is an updated version of my review of Harman’s THE THIRD TABLE. Here is the new description I give:
This is my review of Graham Harman’s book THE THIRD TABLE (Hatje Cantz Verlag, 2012). In this book Harman gives an account of Sir Arthur Eddington’s two tables argument, and proposes a “third table” to exemplify a new non-reductionist approach to objects. I argue that his account of each of the three tables is ultimately unsatisfying. Finally, I compare Harman’s OOO with Feyerabend’s ontology and conclude that OOO is a naïve and dogmatic form of negative theology.
