Derivative and difference. On the stratagem of différance in Derrida

15 Jul , 2020  

In the case of derivatives, it is always also a matter of a differentiality that is shifted and shifted in time, whereby one can paraphrase this with Derrida’s stratagem of “différance”, which he presented in his writing Marginalities of Philosophy. (Derrida 1976: 6ff.) For Derrida, the stratagem of différance has ...

NON – Ultrablack Resistance

30 Apr , 2020  

The formal structures of time collapse, regress to mud, and
space is pushed back and forth until it bends to be trampled by the
pulsations of alien music, while the thinking space becomes seasick:
this is the disruption as it can be experienced when ultrablackness
hits you. When the all-consuming, ...

In Praise of the Prophylactic

19 Apr , 2020  

Prophylaxis is on everyone’s mind these days. Oh what a reversal from only a few months ago, when the decades long march of promiscuous ontologies seemed unstoppable. Are freedom and mobility unquestionable virtues? Should everything touch everything else? Until recently the answer was an unmitigated YES. The Spinozians spoke of flat ontologies. ...

The Paucity of Digital Theory

11 Apr , 2020  

A provocation: theories of the digital have generated very little digital theory. What do I mean? And why is this the case? First, one must separate the form of digital theory from the kinds of objects it wants to study. Thus a digital theory may make a claim about a digital object. ...

Ultrablack of Music / Vorwort – Technokulturen, unmenschliche Rhythmusmächte und das Ultra-Schwarz der Nicht- Musik

16 Mrz , 2020  

“Blitze explodieren zwischen verschiedenen Intensitäten, aber ihnen geht ein unsichtbarer, nicht wahrnehmbarer, dunkler Vorbote voraus, der ihren Weg im Voraus determiniert, aber (wie eine Gravur) in umgekehrter Richtung. Ebenso enthält jedes System seinen dunklen Vorboten,
der die Kommunikation der peripheren Serien gewährleistet. Wie wir sehen werden, wird diese Rolle, angesichts ...

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 ...

Black

6 Jan , 2020  

Laruelle often talks about the black universe and that philosophy is not dark enough. But what is black? Is black a colour and if so, can we see it?

Reza Negarestani has provided a mix of theory and fiction in his book Cyclonopedia, where he portrays the earth as a ...

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

9 Dez , 2019  

1) 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 ...

Capital and Total Capital: The Quasi-Transcendental and the Actualisation- Virtualization Interconnection

24 Sep , 2019  

For a further explanation of the concept of capital we refer to the French philosopher François Laruelle, who in his conception of non-philosophy, when he speaks of “unilateral duality”, first generally assumes that two or more terms and their relations are always determined by one term. This is the principle ...

Rhythmus und Zeit (Ultrablack of Music 3)

11 Dez , 2018  

Das Musik-Ereignis konstruiert die Zeit und seine Parameter konstituieren sich durch die Zeit: Dem Rhythmus inhäriert eine gequantelte, intensiv-variable und wellenförmige Zeit; eine Zeit, die durch Echos und das Klonen von Echos auch verschleppt werden kann, durch Hallblöcke gebrochen und schließlich geremixt wird. Kodwo Eshun fragt mit A Guy Called ...

Derivat und Differenz. Zum Strategem der différance bei Derrida

1 Mrz , 2018  

Es geht bei den Derivaten immer auch um eine in der Zeit verschobene und sich verschiebende Differenzialität, wobei man diese mit Derridas Strategem der »différance«, das er in seiner Schrift Randgänge der Philosophie vorgestellt hat, umschreiben kann. (Derrida 1976: 6ff.) Für Derrida kombiniert das Strategem der différance je schon die ...
