On Anglo-Saxon things

theorists such as Jane Bennett, whose concept of ‘thing-​power’ in Vibrant Matter (2010) seeks to ‘acknowledge that which refuses to dissolve completely into the milieu of human knowledge’ while aiming to ‘attend to the it as actant’.10 Even more recently, Ian Bogost’s Alien Phenomenology (2012) situates things at the centre of being and advocates the use of metaphor in philosophy as a means of glimpsing things as they exist outside of human consciousness.11 The work of Levi Bryant (2011) puts entities at all levels of scale on equal ontological footing and Timothy Morton

ourselves’, and yet also insist that ‘reading Beowulf , even after all these years is not like talking to an old friend’. 16 And yet, even though the poem offers itself up to questions of old friends very naturally, intimacy is rarely articulated openly as a guiding critical framework. Many times when intimacy is invoked in places where we would expect to see it – in queer theory, affect studies, and theories of sensation or phenomenology – it functions metaphorically as a descriptor of a certain kind

specific historical contexts, but rather an eloquent and polemically brilliant phenomenology of a set of ‘enduring reflexes’, partially embodied in a set of institutions but mainly hovering like a dense mental fog over the low-lying ideological terrain on which the Labour Party operated . . . As a savage and innovatory indictment of the malaise of the Labour Party and labour movement in the late 1950s and 1960s the New Left critique is justly famous. But as a stand in for the history of the Labour Party, it will not do. A second, and related, charge has been that the

Mapping times

. Phenomenological approaches to temporality regard time as emerging in our individual capacities for making sense of the world. The father of phenomenology, Edward Husserl, focused on exploring what he termed ‘internal time consciousness’ – suggesting that the temporal was a central and indivisible aspect of being human (Hoy, 2012). This idea of ‘being’ was developed in Heideggerian thought through hermeneutics. Heidegger makes an important distinction between different modes of temporality, which he characterises as ‘ontic’ and ‘ontological’. Ontic knowledge relates to the

further, arguing that these ‘imponderabilia’ are manifestations of what he refers to as ‘the subjective desire of feeling’, a concept that is awkwardly expressed in this isolated phrase, but which is not dissimilar to what we would now call, in the language of phenomenology, ‘lived experience’. Among the specific examples of practices manifesting this ‘subjective desire of feeling’ that Malinowski cites, there are many that would be very effectively evoked through film. These include the routines of working life, the way in which the body is cared
