Philosophy Forum 20/07/2017: Francois Laruelle (again)

Dear All

for those of you waiting for him to go away I’m sorry,  Laruelle still plat du jour as it were. The difficult nature of the discussion means any insights/rereadings into any of the previous reading materials is perfectly acceptable.

However for those of you who do want to look at something else I would recommend the introduction to this book by Alexander Galloway along with this paper that he refers to in the his intro. If that’s not enough there is this other short paper by Laruelle.

The meeting is in the usual room UL102 14:15-15:45.

with best wishes

Philosophy Forum 06/07/2017: Francois Laruelle’s Non-Philosophy

Dear All

next week the philosophy forum will embark on the perilous mission of trying to understand Laruelle’s challenging work. Our starting point will be Brassier’s translation of ‘A Summary of Non-Philosophy’ though forum members are invited to use any weapon at their disposal in order to decipher this (and his philosophy in general). Also of interest may be this interpretation of his work.

The meeting will be in UL102 14:15-15:45.

With best wishes

Graham
