“A Series of Footnotes to Plato”
Thanks Professor Harman.
This is been crossing my mind recently also, or at least similarly.
I have stated here and there that my concern is orientation upon objects, And I think sometimes people might mistake me being a sort of Graham Harman congregant. I Think that he has allowed for certain kind of resonance with his ooo. And perhaps this Resonance is akin to his “tensions”.
What is been going through my mind lately is the difference between, say, juggling And holding something that is difficult to grasp. These represent two ways of handling this thing that is Difficult to grasp or should we say even slippery .
And I think Harman is touching upon these two philosophical manners.
It is the difference between riding a wave, like surfing or body surfing, and standing on a Buoy. Neither is inherently more correct than the other for negotiating the ocean and it’s interaction with the coast line, but each gives a certain perspective and philosophically speaks to different aspects of the same situation.
Personally, I think there should be more clear delineation upon what any philosophy is doing for any presentation.
