About this product
- DescriptionAll Thoughts Are Equal is both an introduction to the work of French philosopher Francois Laruelle and an exercise in nhuman thinking. For Laruelle, standard forms of philosophy continue to dominate our models of what counts as exemplary thought and kwledge. By contrast, what Laruelle calls his n-standard approach attempts to bring democracy into thought, because all forms of thinking including the nhuman are equal.John O Maoilearca examines how philosophy might appear when viewed with n-philosophical and nhuman eyes. He does so by refusing to explain Laruelle through orthodox philosophy, opting instead to follow the structure of a film (Lars von Trier s documentary The Five Obstructions ) as an example of the n-standard method. Von Trier s film is a meditation on the creative limits set by film, both techlogically and aesthetically, and how these limits can push our experience of film and of ourselves beyond what is rmally deemed the perfect human. All Thoughts Are Equal adopts film s constraints in its own experiment by showing how Laruelle s radically new style of philosophy is best presented through our most nhuman form of thought that found in cinema.
