This chapter questions the contemporary stakes of speculative philosophy. Taking Whitehead’s claim of inscribing all problems of knowledge, of reality, and of experience within a “speculative scheme” seriously, this chapter is organized around a number of questions: How to inherit from speculative philosophy in the aftermath of the critiques that haven been formulated with respect to it in the beginning of the 20th century, most notably by pragmatism, Bergsonism, and phenomenology? Which are the instruments thanks to which speculative philosophy can enlarge the field of thought in order to account for experiences that transcend human limitations?

Keywords:   Speculative philosophy, Simondon, Schelling, Pragmatism, Creativity, Bergson, Actual Entity, Actualism
