    One thought on “Guerrilla Metaphysics: Phenomenology and the Carpentry of Things”

    1. Definitely one of the more interesting books I have read recently. A premise, that 'Normal' philosophy does not care about objects as such, but only what humans perceive, leads to a heavy deep philosophical/metaphysical hunt for the existence of the non-human experienced world and how it is possible to perceive it at all for any object, including humans. I am not up-to-date on the premises of the book, which may be over-stated, but had great interest, entertainment and new understandings reading [...]

    2. In this book he's saying all kinds of stuff about phenomenology that are ridiculous and in plain contradiction with everything the phenomenologists themselves say. That's fine with me, as long as then a philosophy becomes apparent that, as unphenomenological, grants new possibilities to philosophy. The result is supposed to be some kind of inhumane interaction of beings, but I simply don't get it. Stuck in a phenomenological way of speaking, he tends to fall back into very typical problems of ex [...]

I'm not all that interested in metaphysics and the dynamics of objects but the writing was good and the parts where he takes on what modern philosophy has become were worth it. I still think you'd be better off reading a biology or physics textbook if you want to know how things work.NB: Unbelievable, after 13 [...]
