Ecstasy of the social: The masses. More social than the social.

1 Apr , 2020  

What is there beyond the end? Beyond the end extends virtual reality, the horizon of a programmed reality in which all our functions—memory, emotions, sexuality, intelligence— become progressively useless. Beyond the end, in the era of the trans-political, the transsexual, the trans-aesthetic, all our desiring machines become little spectacle machines, ...

La plus-value c´est ça, c´est le plus de jouir…
(Jacques Lacan, Milano 12.05.1972)

Lacan gibt bekanntlich im Seminar 17 (1969/70) eine eigenwillige, von Hegels Herr-Knecht-Dialektik inspirierte (oder von Alexandre Kojève animierte) Begründung des Kapitalismus. Er behauptet dort, daß der Knecht dem Herrn die(se) Mehrlust schuldet: „Was auf der Ebene von ...

Within the pages of Gilles Deleuze and Felix Guattari’s collaborative works recur images of the most unsettling kind. Writing of capital’s endless thirst for living labour, they remark that it “is no longer the cruelty of life, the terror of one life brought to bear ...

25 Theses at time (of capital)

23 Jan , 2020  

1) Economic quantities can be changed in time precisely because money, as a so-called transcendental signifier of capital, has the quality of a pure quantity, whereby money is released from current acts of exchange and thus, as a monetary sign, accounts for the time accumulated in the commodity, which in ...

Adorno and Laruelle: The non-identical and the real

12 Jan , 2020  

Adorno speaks of the “non-identical being the own identity of the thing against its identifications” (Adorno, Negative Dialectic: 164). The cognition of the non-identical identifies differently from the identifying thinking, it emphasizes to say what something is, while the identifying thinking acts up as representation of the something that now ...

Meillassoux at the Googleplex

9 Jan , 2020  

I’ve been thinking about the old maxim “correlation is not causation.” Skeptics tend to push a strong interpretation of the maxim. The skeptics say significance doesn’t emanate from behavior; the phenomena of the world refuse to furnish their own meaning. Working scientists on the other hand tend to be more ...

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 ...
