“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

In this interview Meillassoux does a Shelley:

If we can imagine so many things, this must be just the shadow of reality: imagination cannot exceed reality.

Sounds just like Shelley's Defence of Poetry. “We lack the creative faculty to imagine that which we know.”
