This article is an extended review of Graham Harman's Heidegger Explained: From Phenomenon to Thing. The paper explains Harman's argument that Heidegger's famous broken tool incident - the account that introduces a critique of presence based on the withdrawn dimensions of things - has a much greater relevance than is usually imagined. It explores Harman's extrapolations from Heidegger to rethink the very nature of objects - or things in themselves, their relations to each other, and their own unfathomable inner being. The paper goes on to note the implications of this argument for thinking more generally about relationality, space, and the more-than-human.
