Polygraph Issue 22: Ecology and Ideology

aka What I’ve Been Doing For The Past…er, I’d rather not say how long. Look, it’s an academic publication. By graduate students, even. Read more on the homepage.

If any of this sounds interesting, you can buy it on Amazon, which I normally wouldn’t recommend but it’s sort of hard to find otherwise. Don’t worry, I’m not making any money.

Not on the cover: a long introduction by the editors, and a (critical) review of Lee Braver’s A Thing of This World and Graham Harman’s book on Latour by me. Both can be found in PDF form via the link to the homepage. Don’t worry, collegiality is strictly maintained throughout.

As co-editor I’m not allowed to pick favorites, but even the pieces I disagree with (some more violently than others — readers of this blog will probably be able to guess which ones) are at least well put.

  1. Hey, really liked your review essay. It’s not at all my area of expertise but as a lurker in this corner of blog-dom I couldn’t help but be a somewhat skeptical spectator to the splash made by ‘speculative realism’. I found your review really helpful in clearing up what exactly is at stake.

  2. Thanks! Writing the review made me more critical of it than I already was. I go back and forth between thinking it wasn’t thorough enough of a critique and that it somehow missed the point. But now I can’t fix it. Such are the pitfalls of ‘real’ publishing.

  3. Looks somewhat interesting….that is, it did until I noted that the editors allowed something by one of the Kotzko-AIPAC gang in (Smiths)–about the equivalent of allowing an Ayn Rand to speak at Cambridge along with Wittgenstein. Those midwestern seminary punks more or less ruined the leftist blog scene—just put a cap in Kotzko’s pathetic kopf already

  4. enjoyed your review a lot, informative but also very funny in its judgement and its civility.

    that britt rusert piece looks interesting but i don’t know how these things can still be discussed apart from the property questions

    here’s a good piece about that:


  5. Molly – thanks, i really appreciate that. Also for the essay – just read the introduction, looks really good. rusert’s piece focuses on how blackness interrupts the organic relation assumed between human and nature, a distinct (though of course not unrelated) false universalism to that between legal subject and market.

  6. and of course it’s nice to see you again senor chupacabra, though i would argue we all did our part to “ruin” the leftist blog scene, and it seems to me the “midwestern seminary punks” mostly keep to themselves these days. also like the rest of us.
