Is there any relation between Bhaskar's "critical realism" and recent philosophies like OOP and Accelerationism. They feel broadly similar, perhaps just because both of the latter often involve post Marxism. I read Bhaskar, before he died, and suspected it was very bad philosophy, but wasn't sure. It's funny how he titled his ideas the same as another philosophical current (not very imaginative)!

  • If object oriented ontology (metaphysics) is "broadly similar" to accelerationism (political philosophy) I am afraid this similarity is too broad. Please explain what kind of relation you are looking for. – Conifold Dec 17 '18 at 23:45
  • could just be that both are fashionable in the same way @Conifold that's the question, probably unanswerable, why they both seem similar to me! – confused Dec 18 '18 at 17:05
