In this essay I commend a naturalism that is more finitist thanan objectivating naturalism that abstracts from its origins in humanbody performances and changing socio-historical worlds. My discussion begins with the case for an expanded naturalism that inherits several of the traditional senses of "speculative". I then discuss four differential naturalisms and briefly indicate how an expanded naturalism has implications both for "theology" understood in a critical sociological as opposed to an ecclesiastical sense, and for a possible redeployment of "utopia".
