A Graham Harman Dictionary of Concepts. I will continually hamran, add new words and generally make it more comprehensive as time goes on. Allure does three things: Allure is a seductive power as it alludes to a things mysterious depths beyond its qualities. The traits, attributes and features of an object are its notes.

Black noise is the contiguity interior to objects Quadrupls, p. Black noise is one world level of engagement that has been solidified. Objects are receded from view but have radiant energy.

Allure is a black hole that sucks us into another level of the world. A term Harman adopted from Bruno Latour.

Quadruple Object, The

Essentially, it is to give the world its body quaeruple flesh, of sensuous and voluptuous being. Comedy does not occur all the time but only at certain times. Comedy is a type of art.

Comedy presents those who are worse than we are. Imitation brings out the automatism of people. Comedy and humour are aspects of allure. Every connection is itself an object. Only two quadruplr linked real objects form a new object, since they generate a new internal space which is, in-itself, inexhaustible from the outside. Every object is the result of a connection. The relation is hrman, as the real object is engaged in relation yet the other real object is withdrawn from all relation, as only its sensual object is in relation to the real objects intention.

Object A does not fuse into object B. Black noise produces a slow down buffer in the casual relation. Objects within an object assemblage can be replaced without affecting the object as a whole.

They still remain the same object. Hence, the way that the two real objects interact is through the mediation of the sensual realm. It is the relation to an object which is enchanted by it. Types of charm include metaphor, beauty, hypnotic experience and cute actions. This term was coined by Quentin Meillassoux, but Harman finds it an invaluable quadurple.

The eidos hints at that which really belongs to the real object, not just the surface adumbrations and accidents.

The unity of a real objects notes. The real object is a unified thing, but not an empty unity. Essence is the unity of the real object over against its moments. It is the interplay between the unity and the plurality of an object.


Elements are more than notes as they include features that are purely variable or accidental. Sensual objects inevitably become elements, and there is something inherently flat and caricatured about elements, however brilliantly they may sparkle.

Harman added this blog entry on the 14th of January. The description is from a set of Tool-being playing cards he made back in But the analysis always stops somewhere. Dissolved in thought, objects survive as unique crystals, haunting residues that must be experienced in their own way rather than explained. The elements is what cannot be broken down: The power of any world lies in its elements. Every domain of our lives, from the nursery to the factory to the objwct, has its recurring forms and stock characters.

Once we have mastered these familiar shapes, we feel ourselves to be citizens of that kingdom. When things are reduced to elements they all belong together. No element, no matter how lowly, can take the place of any other. Nothing can escape its own elemental nature, its own distinctive configuration.

Even the mightiest power has a face. Mortals refers to the as-structure: So far, all is known about the tension lines between the poles is the following: Harman likes to extrapolate fourfolds which have hamran universal structure. Other classic examples of fourfold quadruple structures are: A firewall is not a thing but the effect of the internal relations of an real object striving to unify its notes. It is completely independent of these, since it can shift into any new environment and still remain the same thing.

This triggered a chain of events that led to the outbreak the first World War. Of those that are, they have an effect only insofar as they are part quadurple an object that affects me. How would things need to change?

And in what ways would we feel liberated or imprisoned? But this means that at bottom there quadrpule be a single type of reality, one form of self -contained being that belongs both to the phenomena encountered by the senses and to the tool-beings that recede from us.

An ontological feature of all objects in general. It has two functions: When two objects quadrulpe they can only relate through the interior of a third object.

The intention of each object meets through a unified relation; the intention as a whole is a real object, because the content of the intention is arbitrary to the fact of the intention itself.

If there is no regress, then there remains an ultimate level of reality at the bottom, a stance entirely incompatible with OOP.

Harman only used this term once, but I feel it contains enough interesting etymological resonance for its inclusion in this dictionary of grahamm.

The first is apophantic and the second is semantic. Harman claims that there cannot be a pure division of logos. These objects can never be fully deployed in a any single level, since their nature is never to manifest themselves entirely in any interaction at all. But insofar as entities interact at all, they share a common language of charm or brute force by which they are able to pursued or annihilate one another.


Harman is a big fan of H. The imperative is the way we respond to directives from the sensual world as if they were ethical: Occasionalism is the idea that God is the cause of ojbect things. Local occasionalism is the term used to quadrupoe how actors can never hadman touch, but are always mediated by other actors. Those who care only to generate arguments almost never generate objects.

New objects, however, are the sole and sacred fruit of writers, thinkers, politicians, travellers, lovers, and inventors. Thus a good style can quadruplee or break philosophers.

The four simultaneously engaged areas of the tetrad are in no specific order: Here is a tetrad using Heidegger qusdruple an example: It is the performance of a withering subterranean force, but the force that also acts to summon up some explicitly encountered reality. This ambiguity of meaning is nothing but the tool itself: This second poit does not imply that being quadguple itself a being.

The internal space where all intentional relation occurs. The discussion of the fundamental traits of specific types of entities: Notes are the qualities of the object itself that we cannot come into contact with.

Qualities are public, notes are private. It could be said that a real object is both one single note and a plurality of notes. The plurality of an objects notes are its real qualities.

This might be images in consciousness. It might be grahxm, or events, or bundles of qualities. Correlationism is just one type of overmining philosophy, though it happens to be the most common type in the past two centuries. There is also simply relationism. But it should be crystal clear that Whitehead is not a correlationist.

The description of the base structural features shared harjan all objects: For in the first place, not all entities can have psychic life, but only real objects … all real object are capable of psyche, insofar as all are capable of relation.

Harman is in favour of the term polypsychism or endopsychism instead of the more reductive panpsychism.

This is a principle from the work of Bruno Latour, but Harman readily accepts it into his philosophy: Term coined by Saul Kripke. Harman uses it in reference to real objects: The metaphors of concealment, veiling, sheltering, harboring, and protecting are all relevant here. The real cats continue to do their work even as I sleep.
