Continental philosophy and science have a complex and tumultuous relationship. At turns oppositional and complementary, their discourse has been marked by mutual incomprehension and distrust, often leading to a general lack of interest. But with the recent appearance of the so-called New Materialisms – the materialist Deleuzianism of Manuel DeLanda, the Speculative Realism of Quentin Meillassoux, Ray Brassier, and Graham Harman, the “neuro-turn” of Catherine Malabou, Donna Haraway’s animal studies, the actor-network theory of Bruno Latour – there has been a renaissance of science studies in continental thought.

“Narrative identity takes part in the story’s movement, in the dialectic between order and disorder.”
Marking the indistinct boundary between “a mere sequence of moments” and “a story” is the complex but inescapable concept of narrative. Narratives appear to order and unify events, creating a sense of coherent meaning, yet the narratives by which we order our lives—narratives of gender, race, class, nation, etc.—are always internally troubled.
