necessary contingency, divine inexistence, and other (de)feats of finitude

How is it possible to think a world without the givenness of the world, to think the thing-in-itself after Kant?

InterCcECT will open the new year with this possible new thinking: the speculative materialism of Quentin Meillassoux. Our discussion will focus on Meillassoux’s “Divine Inexistence,” the Appendix to Graham Harman’s recent book Quentin Meillassoux: Philosophy in the Making. (PDF file available upon request.) Meillassoux’s lucid and brief (albeit intricate) book After Finitude is recommended background reading.
