Realism and Materialism

Realism and Materialism

(p.52) Chapter 4 Realism and Materialism
Being and Motion

Thomas Nail

Oxford University Press

This chapter lays out a methodology of transcendental realism and new materialism based on motion. Transcendental realism is the study of the real minimal ontological conditions for the actual emergence of the historical present. The purpose of this method is to give a description of what previous being must at least be like given that it appears as it does today: in motion. The chapter offers critiques of constructivism, empiricism, metaphysics, and transcendental idealism. It also offers a critique of vitalist new materialism, negative materialism, object-oriented ontology, formalism, and all ahistorical methods of thinking about matter and materialism. It concludes with a theory of “process materialism.”

Keywords:   transcendental realism, realism, materialism, process materialism, object-oriented ontology, metaphysics, empiricism
