07 Jul 2011 New and forthcoming texts ���Collapse VII: Culinary Materialism��� has been published and is available now. My contribution to the Venice Biennale 2011, entitled Rainbows and Rationalism, can be read in the main biennale catalogue, ILLUMInations. The new Thackery T. Lambshead fiction collection exquisitely compiled and edited by Jeff and Ann VanderMeer is now available. My text in the volume is a short fiction written on a drawing provided by China Mi?�ville. Other contributors include China Mi?�ville, Mike Mignola, Michael Moorcock, Alan Moore, Minister Faust, Jeffrey Ford and Lev Grossman among others. I have also a short text in the new issue of MACBA’s magazine. On the philosophical front, a couple of new essays on geophilosophical realism and the Copernican thought should be available soon in anthologies including the promising Realismus Jetzt! If nothing unforeseeable happens, I will start a series of introductory posts on Fernando Zalamea’s mathematico-philosophical project on this blog (there will also be interspersed commentaries on Peirce, contemporary rationalism, Gabriel Catren, �Ķ). In the meantime, for those who are interested, the new volume of Collapse ���Culinary Materialism��� contains some brief introductory passages on Zalamea in the editorial introduction. Manabrata Guha’s multi-dimensional essay in the volume also builds on Zalamea���s work on Peirce.
