About this workshop:
This paper provides a critique of post-Kantian philosophy,which is organised around the idea that we only have access to the correlation between thinking and being. Against "correlationism" − that is, the doctrine that mind and world, or representation and reality, cannot be conceived in isolation from one other − this paper develops a speculative materialism which provides the conceptual resources to think a reality that is independent of thought.
