Endnotes

Preliminary Materials for a Balance Sheet of the 20th Century

Endnotes

Endnotes is a journal/book series published by a discussion group based in Germany, the UK and the US. It is primarily oriented towards conceptualising the conditions of possibility of a communist overcoming of the capitalist mode of production--and of the multiple structures of domination which pattern societies characterised by that mode of production--starting from present conditions. As such it has been concerned with debates in communist theory, and particularly the problematic of "communisation"; the question of gender and its abolition; the analysis of contemporary struggles, movements and political economy; the dynamics of surplus population and its effects on capital and class; capitalist formations of "race"; value-form theory and systematic dialectics; the revolutionary failures and impasses of the 20th Century. Endnotes 1 (Preliminary Materials for a Balance Sheet of the 20th Century) includes presentation of a debate between Troploin (Gilles Dauve, Karl Nesic) and Theorie Communiste on communisation, the history of capitalism and class struggle."

Idealism, Relativism, and Realism

New Essays on Objectivity Beyond the Analytic-Continental Divide

Idealism, Relativism, and Realism

Several debates of the last years within the research field of contemporary realism – known under titles such as "New Realism," "Continental Realism," or "Speculative Materialism" – have shown that science is not systematically the ultimate measure of truth and reality. This does not mean that we should abandon the notions of truth or objectivity all together, as has been posited repeatedly within certain currents of twentieth century philosophy. However, within the research field of contemporary realism, the concept of objectivity itself has not been adequately refined. What is objective is supposed to be true outside a subject’s biases, interpretations and opinions, having truth conditions that are met by the way the world is. The volume combines articles of internationally outstanding authors who have published on either Idealism, Epistemic Relativism, or Realism and often locate themselves within one of these divergent schools of thought. As such, the volume focuses on these traditions with the aim of clarifying what the concept objectivity nowadays stands for within contemporary ontology and epistemology beyond the analytic-continental divide. With articles from: Jocelyn Benoist, Ray Brassier, G. Anthony Bruno, Dominik Finkelde, Markus Gabriel, Deborah Goldgaber, Iain Hamilton Grant, Graham Harman, Johannes Hübner, Andrea Kern, Anton F. Koch, Martin Kusch, Paul M. Livingston, Paul Redding, Sebastian Rödl, Dieter Sturma.
