    Everything and Nothing: How Do Matters Stand with Nothingness in Object-Oriented Ontology?Niels Wilde - 2020 - Open Philosophy 3 (1):242-256.
    This article poses a question for Object-Oriented Ontology in general and Harman’s position in particular. It is Heidegger’s question: “How do matters stand with nothingness?” First, I present the basic outline of Harman’s OOO which is presented as a theory of everything. In order to pin down the question of nothing, I begin by asking about “something”: what is an object? And what does it mean that objects exist? Then I pursue by identifying two notions of nothing in OOO: the (...)

    Weird Allies? Kierkegaard and Object-Oriented Ontology.Niels Wilde - 2019 - Kierkegaard Studies Yearbook 24 (1):393-413.
    This paper examines the connection between Kierkegaard’s philosophy of existence and Graham Harman’s object-oriented ontology. The claim is that Harman’s position provides a conceptual apparatus that can beneficially address some basic ontological points in Kierkegaard about actuality, the self and the reality of individual subsisting mind-independent entities. On the other hand, Kierkegaard’s emphasis on the human self as a place situated in existence can provide a supplement to Harman’s realism which implicitly relies on topological notions. If we define an entity, (...)

    Personal Identity: Birth, Death and the Conditions of Selfhood.Niels Wilde - 2022 - Continental Philosophy Review 55 (1):1-18.
    What makes us the same person across time? The different solutions to this problem known as personal identity can be divided into two camps: A numerical and a practical approach. While the former asks for the conditions of identity based on the question “what is a person?,” the latter is concerned with what we identify with in everyday life as essential in order to form a narrative of one’s life as a whole based on the question “who am I?” However, (...)

    Moods and Meteors: A Reconstruction of Heidegger’s Atmospherology.Niels Wilde - 2020 - Human Studies 43 (3):369-383.
    The aim of this paper is to explore the connection between moods and meteors or atmospheric phenomena in Heidegger’s thinking. The idea of the weather as something affecting our emotional state is not new but goes all the way back to Homer. However, the ontological basis of this connection is missing. In this paper, I argue that Heidegger provides exactly such an ontological account of moods and meteors not as two separate spheres but as a common atmosphere of attuned elementality—a (...)
