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)

27 Aug , 2019  

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 ...

Um heute die Effekte, die Potenziale und die Gefahren der digitalen Angebote (Meme) nachzuvollziehen, muss man die gefährliche Macht der Quasi-Objekte verstehen, die einzig und allein da sind, um mit steigender Geschwindigkeit zu zirkulieren. Es geht hier um die rigorose Transsubstantiation des Seins in die Relation. Damit drohen selbst noch ...

DREAMS AND NIGHTMARES BEYOND THE ANTHROPOCENE ERA

24 Jul , 2019  

Freedom is what produces negentropy, it is what generates negentropic acts. Freedom does not mean the freedom to choose between Coca-Cola and Pepsi-Cola: it is the freedom to combat an entropic state of fact in order to establish a new negentropic reality. This entropic state of fact is precisely a ...

Atopia: On Frédéric Neyrat’s Manifesto for a Radical Existentialism

22 Jul , 2019  

“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 ...

The Revolutionary Disaster / The Disaster of Revolution

2 Mrz , 2019  

Our world is awash with disaster. The cheapest explanation would be to dismiss it all as wish fulfillment. That account takes the apocalypse to be the
playing out of impossible fantasies. On the one hand, it delivers the satisfaction of revenge, entitlement, or wickedness without forcing one to face the ...

Micropolitics and Segmentarity

17 Feb , 2019  

We cannot say that one of these three lines is bad and another good, by nature and necessarily. The study of the dangers of each line is the object of pragmatics or schizoanalysis, to the extent that it undertakes not to represent, interpret, or symbolize, but only to make maps ...

Gloss on Humanism

5 Feb , 2019  

Since the emergence of bourgeois society and throughout the course of its existence, the emphasis on man has been the price paid for the development and the autonomization of exchange value as well as for the progressive reification of human relations. The more capitalist dehumanization – the ‘organic composition’ of ...

“This world of wild production and explosive desire” – The Unconscious and the Future in Felix Guattari

21 Jan , 2019  

… In the context of science fiction studies Guattari’s interest in Cyberpunk
offers an alternative to Frederic Jameson’s dismissal of the genre as failing to offer anything more than an uncritical celebration of late-capitalism’s technological ubiquity. In fact Guattari offers hisown version of the theory of capitalist and cybernetic Accelerationism ...

Politicising Deleuzian Thought, or, Minority’s Position within Marxism

15 Jan , 2019  

The difference between the two points of view will thus be all the
more pronounced. The Marxist notion of the proletariat entails a
triple consideration: its position within the structure of production,
determined at minimum by its dispossession of the means of production
and its insertion into the process of ...

Laruelle, Art, and the Scientific Model

I want to begin by briefly considering Francois Laruelle’s Non-philosophy project alongside the philosophy of Louis Althusser, in order that some of the consequences for an ‘aesthetics of the generic’ (or what for Laruelle would be a Non-aesthetics) might be made intelligible for artistic practice, and also because it will ...

Channel that great saint of radical blackness, Toussaint Louverture, and return to the Haitian Constitution of 1804, which stated that all citizens will be called black regardless of color. Such blanket totality of black, such cataclysm of human color, renders color invalid and denies the endless dynamics of black-as-white or ...
