Auto-Position and Being-in-One (Being-According-to-the-One)

24 Sep , 2020  

The highest formal act of the philosophical Decision through which philosophical faith in the real enables the latter to be posited as the Real in an illusory way. It is consequently the real cause of the appearance of philosophy. Auto-position as real of the transcendental Unity proper to philosophy is ...

Laruelle und die generischen Wissenschaften

6 Jul , 2020  

Laruelle strebt eine nicht-philosophische oder generische Maschine an, die eine ihrer Suffizienz geraubten Philosophie (ohne umfassende Transzendentalität) mit einer ihres mathemathischen Apparats geraubten Quantenphysik (ohne Kalkulation) verbindet. Die Herausdrehung der Nicht-Standard-Philosophie aus der Philosophie und der Nicht-Philosophie mündet für Laruelle in der generischen Wissenschaft, die selbst eine Methode zu entwickeln ...

Laruelle – Against the Digital (pdf)

21 Nov , 2018  

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 ...

The Seduction of the Real

17 Mai , 2017  

“…images precede the Real.” —Jean Baudrillard

Child of Kant, and of all those for whom the Real is illusion and delusion, delirium and the panic ridden world of impulse and evil, Baudrillard would return us to that ancient world of Pyrrho and Gnosticism, skepticism and dualism. As he’d say ...

Non Philosophy as Politico/Heretical Tract

13 Apr , 2015  


On a superficial reading of non-philosophical texts, it might seem that it is possible to side-step the difficulties of philosophy — its complexity, proliferation, opposing camps, obscurantism, abstraction, specialization — what the ordinary man or woman calls its difficulty. It might seem that non-philosophy is a blow on behalf ...
