Realist Magic: Objects, Ontology, Causality
by Timothy Morton
Publisher: Open Humanities Press 2013
Number of pages: 234
In this book, Timothy Morton explores what it means to say that a thing has come into being, that it is persisting, and that it has ended. Drawing from examples in physics, biology, ecology, art, literature and music, Morton demonstrates the counterintuitive yet elegant explanatory power of Object Oriented Ontology for thinking causality.
