Reviews

"The object of this remarkable, groundbreaking book is as elegant as it is profound-to provide us with a radically objective account of the digital objects that populate our world, both on- and offline. On the Existence of Digital Objects is a truly innovative and philosophically grounded 'object oriented ontology' that is designed for and can scale to the increasingly complex orders of magnitude confronted in the twenty-first century."-David J. Gunkel, author of The Machine Question

"Hui adeptly blends his technical training and philosophical knowledge to address a fundamental question: what is the relationship between technological and humanistic concerns?"-Public Books"Hui unveils the political agenda of "bringing society together" where "techniques can be re-inscribed in culture", conducted through a clear and documented essay."-Neural"Hui's project is remarkable for a conceptual engagement with twentieth-century philosophies of technology (Simondon, Heidegger, Husserl, Stiegler, Ellul) that pushes these theories further by confronting them with questions of the digital."-Radical Philosophy
