New Realism is a movement in philosophy initiated in 2011 by Maurizio Ferraris (University of Turin) and Markus Gabriel (University of Bonn). It has already had success in prompting debates on the perspectives for a realist turn in philosophy. Hundreds of articles pro and contra New Realism have been published, some authored by distinguished contemporary thinkers. All over the world there have been international forums related to the movement. The main task of New Realism is to develop a theoretical alternative to postmodernism and other antirealist traditions in contemporary philosophy.
