In this chapter, I explore the possible benefits of combining an analysis of the psychodynamism of individuation with New Materialism. I contend that concepts such as dynamic objectivity and autonomy can help us to understand the specificity of human agential cuts proposed by New Materialism. This, in turn, opens up possible answers to ethical difficulties left entangled by New Materialism’s posthumanist approach to ethico-onto-epistem-ology.
