OOO Al-Jazeera Style

"The past decade, in particular, has seen the rise of "a unified theory or ontology of objects", Object-Oriented-Ontology (OOO), to the forefront of academic philosophy. But there will be no headlines on the work of thinkers such as Graham Harman, Timothy Morton or Bruno Latour for contemporary philosophy at the moment poses no match to the LHC in terms of spectacular imagery. It is a shame, because this field might actually hold the keys to forge the alliances necessary to deal with global concerns such as global warming, indigenous survival and mass bio-extinction."

From this.

HT Graham.

And it's about the Higgs!
