I got an interesting package of books yesterday that most likely will keep me busy during this summer: David Stuart’s The Order of Days, Gerardo Aldana’s The Apotheosis of Janaab’ Pakal, Manuel DeLanda’s Philosophy and Simulation, Graham Harman’s Circus Philosophicus, and Jane Bennett’s Vibrant Matter. Hence I will have other things to do than blog and reply on comments. I will remain silent for a while.



    Rest In Peace

  3. Hi Johan,

    I have a question, what is the relationship between your archaeology and Symmetrical archaeology? where the similarities are and where not?
    I study archaeology in México and I find your work very interesting, Congratulations.

    Saludos desde la ciudad de México.

    • It is difficult to say what the differences and similarities are since theirs and my versions changes. We seem both to be attracted to the now popular “speculative turn” and the object-oriented perspective. I am far more Deleuzian than they (I rely more on processes of emergence, virtuality and meshworks). They are more Latourian and focus on actual states and networks.
