Description :
The paper begins with a problem, which is how to account for objects, worlds, and events outside of human consciousness or in-themselves. It answers by constructing an evental geography from the ontologies of Martin Heidegger, A. Badiou, and G. Harman. A ‘geo-event’ names the transformation of a world – from galaxies to nation states to ecosystems – by inexistent objects and the forces they unleash. The paper is situated at the busy crossroads of (object-oriented) philosophy, non-representational theory, and actor-network theory.
