Very few thinkers have traveled the heretical path that Francois Laruelle walks between philosophy and nphilosophy. 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 provided only 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.
Francois 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.
