As an annex to Collapse Volume II, we include a full transcription of the conference on 'Speculative Realism' held in London in 2007.
Another World > Ray Brassier, Graham Harmon, Iain Hamilton Grant, Quentin Meillassoux, "Speculative Realism," Collapse: Philosophical Research and Development Vol. III (2007), pp. 307-21, 334-45, 367-88, 408-35.

The full length Collapse III contains explorations of the work of Gilles Deleuze by pioneering thinkers in the fields of philosophy, aesthetics, music and architecture. In addition, we publish in this volume two previously untranslated texts by Deleuze himself, along with a fascinating piece of vintage science fiction from one of his more obscure influences.

The contributors to this volume aim to clarify, from a variety of perspectives, Deleuze's contribution to philosophy: in what does his philosophical originality lie; what does he appropriate from other philosophers and how does he transform it? And how can the apparently disparate threads of his work to be 'integrated' - what is the precise nature of the constellation of the aesthetic, the conceptual and the political proposed by Gilles Deleuze, and what are the overarching problems in which the numerous philosophical concepts 'signed Deleuze' converge?

Speculative Realism

"Schelling is a transition engine. He was a sort of facilitator, a go-between, for philosophical history. He sits between Fichte--who we all equally understand because, after all, Fichte talks about ethics--and Hegel--who no one understood but everyone would like to. Schelling had neither of these benefits nor deficits, and in consequence, no one could understand him nor wished to!" - Iain Hamilton Grant

Rather thanreadinga
paPer,
I'mjust
going
to
make
somegeneral
remarks about
what
I
take
to
be the
reallssignificant
points
of
convergence
and
divergence
beftveen
Iain,
Graham,
Qrentin,
and
myself.
The
fundamentalthing
we
seem
to
share
is
obviously
a
willingnessto
re-inter-
rogate
or
to
open
up
a
whole
set
of philosophical
problem-'
that
were
taken
to
have been
definitively
setded
by Kanr
certainly,at
least,
by
those
working
within
the
continenal
tradition.
This
is why,
as
I'm
sure
everyone
knows,
the
term'realist'
in
continentalphilosophy
is
usually
taken
to
be some
kind of insult
-
only
someone
who
really
hasn't
understood
Kant
could
ever
want
to rehabilitatesomethinglike
metaphysicalrealism,
or
any
form
ofrealism
which
does
not
depend
upon
some
kind
of
transcendental
guarantor.
whether
that guarantoris subjectivelyinstantiated
by
pure
apperception,
or
consffued
in
terms
of linguistic
practices.
308
Speculative
Realism
ora
cotlmunicational
consensus,
etc.
Much
of
the
mainstreamof nineteenthandrwentiethcenturypost-Kan-
tian
philosophy
is
aboutsimply
redefining,
generalising,
specifying,
thesetranscendental
structures
or
conditioru
of
cogrritive
legitimation.
And
in
a
way,
it
doesn'treally
matterwhether
you
claim to
have
replacedthe
subject
andtheobject
with
some
formof
communicational
consensus
or
being-in-the-world
or
any
variant
of
the
latter
on
these
issues:
The
transcendental
function has
been variously
encoded
in
different
versions
of
post-Kaltian
continentalphilosophy.
But
the
thing
that
seems
to
be assumed
within
this
tradition,
the
thing
thatactually Graham's
work
firstbrought
out to
me,
is
the
notionthat
whatever
structurethere
is
in
the
world
has
tobe
transcendentally imposedor
generated
or
gua-ranteed,
which
is
to
say
that
objectivity
can
only
be
a
function
of
synthesis.
And it'sstriking
that
in
post-Kantian
philosophy
thedifference between
Kant
and
Hegel
seems
to be
thatwhere
Kant
will
localise
the
syn-
thesising
function
in
something
like
pure
apperception
or
wholly
on
the
side
of
the
subject,
Hegel and the
variousforms
of
objective idealism
will
say
that
reality
itself
is
self-
synthesising,
that
there
is
a
kind
of
principle
of
synthesis
encoded
in
objective
reality itself.So that,
famously,
in
Hegel's
objective
idealism,the relational
s;mthesis
whichKant
takes
to
be constitutive
of
objectivity
is
simply
trans-
planted
from
its
localisation
in
the
subject
and
construed
rather
as the relation
befiveen subject
andobject, whichHegel
recodes
as
the
'self-relating
negativiry'that
yieldsthestructure
of
reality.
So
thequestionis:
If
you
refuse
to
say
that
slmthesis
-
the
slmthesis
which
produces objective
stnrcture
-
is
anchored
in
a
subject, does
this mean
that309
