Om OOO abracadabra

from Object-Oriented Philosophy by doctorzamalek
ADRIAN IVAKHIV DEFENDS relations over objects, AND LEVI RESPONDS. Of course I’m with Levi on this one, since we’re both coming from an object-oriented place. (He also gets our differences right. There’s a Deleuzian element to Levi’s OOO that is absent from mine, and in mine you get the occasionalist side of it instead.)
Nothing against relations, and nothing against becoming. I just don’t think reality itself can be consistently modeled as simple flux devoid of individuals. Both quanta and the continuum are legitimate sides of reality, and one cannot be expelled from philosophy by way of arbitrary initial assumption. (Becoming in my position is what happens on the interior of an object.)]

A perfect case of the blind leading the blind. [TNM]
