New from OHP: Timothy Morton's Realist Magic

OHP is delighted to announce the most recent title in the New Metaphysics series, edited by Graham Harman and Bruno Latour:

Timothy Morton's Realist Magic.

The open access version is available from http://openhumanitiespress.org/realist-magic.html

Print and downloadable pdf versions will be available soon.

About the book:

Object-oriented ontology offers a startlingly fresh way to think about causality that takes into account developments in physics since 1900. Causality, argues, Object Oriented Ontology (OOO), is aesthetic. In Realist Magic, Timothy Morton explores what it means to say that a thing has come into being, that it is persisting, and that it has ended. Drawing from examples in physics, biology, ecology, art, literature and music, Morton demonstrates the counterintuitive yet elegant explanatory power of OOO for thinking causality.
