Overview

Object-oriented ontology (OOO) asks us to suspend our modern preconceptions and treat epistemic processes as something that happens not just when human thought meets the world, but even when objects meet each other. Such confrontations between object and object produce new, stable, and emer- gent objects that fully deserve to be called real. But does OOO go too far in treating objects as self-enclosed units, without full acceptance of the relational side of their being? Laying new emphasis on the way that objects support each other, Gabriel Yoran introduces his challenging notion of "the interfact."
