About this product
- DescriptionVery few thinkers have traveled the heretical path that Francois Laruelle walks between philosophy and n-philosophy. For Laruelle, the future of philosophy is problematic, but a mutation of its functions is possible. Up until w, philosophy has merely been a utopia concerned with the past and only provided the services of its conservation. We must introduce a rigorous and nimaginary practice of a utopia in action, a philo-fiction a close relative to science fiction. From here we can see the double meaning of the watchword, a tabula rasa of the future. This new destination is imposed by a specifically human messianism, an eschatology within the limits of the Man-in-person as antihumanist ultimatum addressed to the History of Philosophy. This book elucidates some of the fundamental problems of n-philosophy and takes on its detractors.
- Author BiographyFrancois Laruelle is professor emeritus at the University of Paris West Nanterre La Defence and the inventor of the science of philosophy, non-philosophy. Drew S. Burk is a cultural theorist and translator of contemporary French philosophy. Anthony Paul Smith is an Assistant Professor of Religion at La Salle University in Philadelphia.
