NON-LARUELLEAN NON-PHILOSOPHY:Deleuze, Badiou, Zizek, Latour, Stengers, Feyerabend, Serres, Lyotard, Haraway

Laruelle’s “non-philosophy” is a misnomer, and should really be termed “(non-)philosophy to bring out its continuity with the most interesting and exciting endeavours in contemporary philosophical creation. Laruelle invites us to make a new use of existing philosophies, to treat them as raw material for creating our own conceptual spaces outside the careerisation and the standardisation that inevitably arises with the transformation of conceptual creation into market doxa.

Non-philosophy is not something to be done in proud isolation, on the mountain-tops, but in dialogue with the most vital aspects of recent and contemporary philosophy (with Foucault, Deleuze, Badiou, Zizek, Latour, Stengers, Serres, Lyotard, Feyerabend, Haraway), science, poetry, religion, science fiction, art, and human experience. Laruelle invites us to use the power of “non-” to become non-Laruellean, as he himself has become not himself, declaring in an interview: “Laruelle does not exist”.

Let a thousand non-Laruellean (non-)philosophers bloom!

  1. I liked the feeling this post gives. I know you have written a lot about (non-) philosophy but is there an introduction for the philosophically infants (like myself)?

  2. What you say here also reminds me of Latour’s book MOE. pg198-199
    the [MET] beings that attack the self and trie to alienate and devour it are like the philosophys that people just accept and follow considering that they are addressed “to them”. What you describe here sounds more like deflecting current philosophies, trying to get what they can give, never considering that they are there to descrive how I am to be. (I am not the adresee, the wax tablet that waits to be formed)
