In this essay I raise difficulties for both speculative realism and speculative materialism, both fashionable stances. I do not argue against realism or materialism as such, but I suggest that in both cases a more precise delineation of what is meant by 'speculative' would be beneficial. I discuss speculative realism in part one and speculative materialism in part two, and then add a brief conclusion in part three.
