Althusser and the “Problem” in Philosophy

6 Nov , 2019  

Deleuze’s philosophy of virtuality has simply put the non-creationist construction of problems, concepts and their relations before interpretation. Similarly, Althusser has formulated this in several passages of Das Kapital Lesen 1 when he writes that the production of a problem constellation and the concepts unfolding it is to be understood ...

How to Spot a Digital Philosopher

6 Nov , 2019  

The expression “Digital Philosophy” has a specific meaning. Recently I’ve tried to expand that meaning to include other thinkers and traditions from throughout history, not just those who claim, improbably, that “the world is a giant computer.” I’m thinking, for instance, of Richard Dedekind’s work on arithmetic, or the Wittgenstein ...

The End of Dialectics

4 Nov , 2019  

There is a continuous insistence in philosophy on the illusion that the problem of the relationship between theory and practice can be thought of in terms of an original disjunction and a possible synthesis (the differential positions remain, but are constantly both traversed or synthesized). The monistic-plural thinking of a ...

What is determination in the last instance? (20 points)

31 Okt , 2019  

) For Laruelle, philosophy always revolves around dualities or differences, being – other, theory – practice, ontic-ontological, etc.

2) Laruelle leaves this terrain to fully invest his thinking power in the solutions of the One’s problem, or more precisely to develop an irreversible thinking in one or according to the ...

An Ontology of Motion for a Moving World

26 Okt , 2019  

This is such a shock to our geological imagination because our understanding of what the world is  and how it works  (our“ontologies”) have largely considered the Earth as something stable : as the static ground  of being and knowing. The Kinocene should therefore be aloud wake-up call to us that ...

For a New Leftist Policy of Subtraction – Adorno – Dark Deleuze – Laruelle (1)

The hegemonically important discourses are currently taking place between neoliberal positions propagating the national market as a location in international competition and thus free trade, mobility for capital and a limited immigration of labour, and between the racist New Right, which fears for the sovereignty of the state and propagates ...

25 Thesis about Time

30 Sep , 2019

Laruelle and Capital

25 Sep , 2019  

Each statement of non-Marxism aims at a double methodization, either as axiom or as theorem, the latter remaining entirely related to the Marxist material, which is always different symptomatologies. The specific operations of non-Marxism should also produce new theoretical objects, be they specified circumstances or concepts such as “non-proletariat” or ...

Laruelle: The One, The Real

14 Sep , 2019  

Laruelle tries to liberate the real and the one – terms he mostly uses as synonyms – from any determination by philosophical being. If the One is not a synonym for being, it cannot be realized in it either. The One should also not be equated with existence, it is ...

Laruelle, the myths of and about Marxism

11 Sep , 2019  

Marx has often spoken of the dwarfish and narrow-minded idea of the German petty bourgeois. Without a doubt, this also applies today to the remaining stocks of German left-wing academics and their Marx reading, as one could see again on the occasion of this year’s Marx Party. There is swaggering, ...

Quantum Marxism/Non-Laruelle

6 Sep , 2019  

Laruelle calls for a Marxist gnosis in his essay Marx with Planck and consequently calls himself not a Marxist, but a future-oriented Marxist in search of an aleatoric teleology that has no connection with what Marxist philosophy has hitherto set as the measure and method for Marxism. Laruelle thus in ...

Light Manifesto: Non-Philosophy and Meteophilosophy

29 Aug , 2019  

Abstract
Deleuze’s speculative suggestion on the dark precursor is not a
neutral “creative” cooperation with science that his “hybrid”
projects of geophilosophy, schizoanalysis, and so on, were. The
dark precursor is mentioned once in Difference and Repetition as a
notion of a “vaguely scientific” discipline, and there was no broad ...

Schizoanalysis, Marginalism, Fourierism (on two additional resources for understanding the economic views of Deleuze and Guattari)

T

Taken from Stasis

This article analyzes how two theories, both emerging in the
nineteenth century—Fourierism and marginalism—influenced the
economic views of Gilles Deleuze and Félix Guattari. Despite the
fact that explicit recourse to those theories in Capitalism and
Schizophrenia is merely sporadic, the implicitly inherent
interrelation between these ideas ...

A Method to the Madness: The Revolutionary Marxist Method of Deleuze and Guattari

26 Aug , 2019  

taken from Stasis

Abstract


In this article, Andrew Culp looks to how Gilles Deleuze and Félix
Guattari flip Marxism on its head. He makes the case by drawing
on Marx’s own distinction between the dialectical mode of
presentation and research-based mode of inquiry that went into
writing Capital, which leads ...

“Where am I?” asks the sleeper who wakes with difficulty. He doesn’t recognize the room, the furniture. It is too dark; lingering parts of the dream slip into the surroundings, giving them a strangely worrying air. But are we not living the inverse situation today? Prolonged awakening, work without the ...
