Superpositions : Laruelle and the Humanities, Paperback / softback Book

Superpositions : Laruelle and the Humanities Paperback / softback

Edited by Rocco Gangle, Julius Greve

Part of the Critical Perspectives on Theory, Culture and Politics series

Paperback / softback

Description

One of the most important French philosophers working today, Francois Laruelle has developed an innovative and powerful repertoire of concepts across an oeuvre spanning four decades and more than twenty books.

His work-termed non-philosophy or, more recently, non-standard philosophy-has garnered international attention in recent years and stands likely to have a significant impact on the critical practices of the humanities in the near future. Bringing together some of the most prominent scholars of Laruelle, Superpositions: Laruelle and the Humanities explores the intersections of Laruelle's work with multiple discourses within the humanities, including philosophy, critical theory, political theory, media studies, and religious studies.

The book addresses two main questions: In what relation does non-philosophical thought stand with respect to the materials and methods of other disciplines?

How can Laruelle's non-standard philosophy be applied, appropriated and used by other discourses?

Superpositions provides a useful introduction to Laruelle's work for students and scholars, and marks an important intervention into one of the most vigorous and contested areas of contemporary scholarship in the critical humanities.
