Laruelle and Non-Philosophy Hardback
Edited by John Mullarkey, Anthony Paul Smith
Part of the Critical Connections series
This is the first collection of critical essays on the work of this most original thinker.
Francois Laruelle is one of the most important French philosophers of the last 20 years, and as his texts have become available in English there has been a rising tide of interest in his work, particularly on the concept of 'Non-philosophy'.
Non-philosophy radically rethinks many of the most cutting-edge concepts such as immanence, pluralism, resistance, science, democracy, decisionism, Marxism, theology and materialism.
It also expands our view of what counts as philosophical thought, through art, science and politics, and beyond to fields as varied as film, animality and material objects.
This title provides an overview of Laruelle's thought and how it relates to contemporary debates and other philosophies, introducing and contexualising Laruelle for new readers and making it relevant to students and academics with broader interests.
It contains an exclusive interview with Laruelle giving an insight into non-philosophy.
It includes the contributors are the best and most current commentators on Laruelle, and the volume includes a new essay written by Laruelle himself. It includes a bibliography of Laruelle's work and secondary literature.
