AGAINST RELIGION-ORIENTED PHILOSOPHY: the hi-jacking of Laruelle by the religionists

One must never forget that the same Laruelle who wrote INTRODUCTION TO NON-MARXISM later wrote SCIENCE OF CHRIST and CHRISTO-FICTION. Whatever the strategic calculations of the publication of translation decide, the translators of Laruelle are predominantly « religionist » and have their own ideological agenda. A religion-oriented philosophy as interpretation of Laruelle would be a shame, given his non-standard potential. Being « non-standard » in religionist circles is no guarantee of being non-standard in the wider philosophical culture.

    It is interesting: Laurelle himself ponders NP being made into another philosophical object. But for ‘philosophical faith’ what is there to be had if not the religious/ philosophical polemic?

      The leap of faith is supposed to be also a quantum leap, hence the Christic contortions to get faith and quantum to be compossible.

        I don’t think they can. Or rather. Faith is that possibility. And you just gave me evidence for my discussion about Laruelle. Does L speak about this leap in Chrito Fiction? Interesting Kierkegaard also posits a ‘quantum ‘.

    Suspending philosophy in order to make room for religious speculation or mystic quietism is the sort of antiphilosophical move Badiou has rightly inveighed against in Pascal, Wittgenstein etc. Non-philosophy is to move alongside philosophy, watching every step it makes, every breath it takes, but not superseding it. And especially not replacing it by religion.
