Open Philosophy ( invites submissions for the topical issue “Object-Oriented Ontology and its Critics,” edited by Graham Harman (Southern California Institute of Architecture).



Oriented Ontology (OOO) has provoked more critics and generated more interdisciplinary work than any of the strands of post-2007 Speculative Realism. This topical issue aims to address both the controversies associated with OOO and its rapid spread across the disciplines. Articles presenting thoughtful criticism of OOO are welcomed for this issue, as are discussions of OOO’s intervention in such fields as archaeology, architecture, art, literary criticism, organization theory, social theory, and videogame criticism, among others.
Authors publishing their articles in the special issue will benefit from:

  • transparent, comprehensive and fast peer review,
  • efficient route to fast-track publication and full advantage of De Gruyter's e-technology,
  • free language assistance for authors from non-English speaking regions,
  • no publishing fees.


Submissions will be collected till May 31, 2019. To submit an article for the special issue of Open Philosophy, authors are asked to access the on-line submission system at:
