“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

The earlier presentation on Guerilla Metaphyics mentioned Harman's idea that objects experience a relationship to their parts that is similar to their relationship with other objects. Could you comment on how the distinction between an object and its parts--this radical alterity--can allow for any the existence of the object at all, since it's sort of its own other. Does this have to do with the self-differing we discussed in an earlier class--the object's always being slightly ahead of itself?
