Andrew Benjamin, Towards a Relational Ontology: Philosophy's Other Possibility (SUNY, 2015)

Respondents: Nicole Anderson (Macquarie University), Jeff Malpas (UTas), Magdalena Zolkos (ACU)

Andrew Benjamin calls for a notion of relationality that takes relations among people and events as primary. He shows that a relational ontology has always been at work within the history of philosophy even though philosophy has been reluctant to affirm its presence. Such an already present status of a relational ontology is philosophy's other possibility.

Andrew Benjamin is (Monash University, Melbourne, and Kingston University, London) is the author of several books, including Working with Walter Benjamin: Recovering a Political Philosophy and the coeditor (with Dimitris Vardoulakis) of Sparks Will Fly: Benjamin and Heidegger, also published by SUNY Press.
