I read an article yesterday by Graham Harman on the philosophy of Quentin Meillassoux. The most intriguing aspect for me is the second section of the article:
"Second, I discuss an unpublished book by Meillassoux unfamiliar to all readers of this article, except those scant few that may have gone digging in the microfilm archives of the École normale supérieure. The book in question is Meillassoux’s revised doctoral dissertation L’Inexistence divine (or The Divine Inexistence), with its seemingly bizarre vision of a God who does not yet exist but might exist in the future. Without literally accepting this view, I will claim that it is philosophically interesting in ways that even a hardened sceptic might be able to appreciate."
The third section, discussing the possible future developments of Meillassoux's ideas is also pretty interesting.
