The Nouemon Unclothed: Metaphysics with Peter Wolfendale.


Volume/Event Contributors:

Peter Wolfendale with respondents Amanda BeechDaniel Sacilotto, Ben Woodard. Moderated by artist and writer Joshua Johnson.

With his recent book from Urbanomic, Object Oriented Philosophy: The Noumenon’s New Clothes, philosopher Peter Wolfendale examines trends in continental philosophy which seek to overturn a correlationist consensus, and directly access a metaphysical realism once more. Wolfendale engages a broad-ranging knowledge of the history Western philosophical thought, from Deleuze to Quine, to examine and critique this turn, arguing for the priority of a methodological epistemology if we are to have any hope of recovering a metaphysical stance worth advocating. Following Kant, Wolfendale’s Transcendental Realism proceeds from a fundamental deontology to revive the constructive trajectory of truth in the formal structure of the real, rationally and systematically engaging both the demands of thought and the world upon philosophy.
