LARUELLE’S NON-PHILOSOPHY: principles of a metaphysical research programme

Some people might be puzzled at the idea of treating François Laruelle’s non-philosophy as a form of « metaphysics”. After all, he is known for a position that sharply limits the utility of traditional philosophical vocabulary, and that seeks to propose more satisfactory vocabularies. I argue that this concern is more semantic than substantial, an instance of a new logophobia,. This context-blind attachment to words could impede cross-continental understanding if allowed to flourish unchallenged. Karl Popper’s concept of metaphysical research programmes as composed of a mixture of philosophical and scientific (testable) elements fosters cross-continental understanding by allowing us to compare and evaluate alternative systems of thought as endeavours of a similar type, namely the elaboration, articulation, and development of metaphysical research programmes.
