Meeting the Universe Halfway: Quantum Physics and the by Karen Barad

By Karen Barad

Meeting the Universe Halfway is an bold booklet with far-reaching implications for various fields within the usual sciences, social sciences, and arts. during this quantity, Karen Barad, theoretical physicist and feminist theorist, elaborates her thought of agential realism. delivering an account of the realm as a complete instead of as composed of separate usual and social nation-states, agential realism is right now a brand new epistemology, ontology, and ethics. the place to begin for Barad’s research is the philosophical framework of quantum physicist Niels Bohr. Barad extends and partly revises Bohr’s philosophical perspectives in gentle of present scholarship in physics, technology experiences, and the philosophy of technological know-how in addition to feminist, poststructuralist, and different severe social theories. within the procedure, she considerably reworks understandings of house, time, subject, causality, company, subjectivity, and objectivity.

In an agential realist account, the realm is made from entanglements of “social” and “natural” organizations, the place the excellence among the 2 emerges out of particular intra-actions. Intra-activity is an inexhaustible dynamism that configures and reconfigures family of space-time-matter. In explaining intra-activity, Barad unearths questions about how nature and tradition engage and alter through the years to be essentially faulty. and she or he reframes realizing of the character of clinical and political practices and their “interrelationship.” hence she can pay specific consciousness to the in charge perform of technology, and he or she emphasizes alterations within the realizing of political practices, severely transforming Judith Butler’s influential thought of performativity. eventually, Barad makes use of agential realism to supply a brand new interpretation of quantum physics, demonstrating that agential realism is greater than a way of reflecting on technology; it may be used to really do science.
