This volume provides for the first time a collection of English translations of the writings of François Laruelle, one of the most important, but also least well-known, French philosophers working today.
For the past thirty years Laruelle has been setting out a rigorous theory for philosophy that offers a universal and abstract transcendental organon capable of conceiving the various philosophical accounts indifferent to their doctrines.
Laruelle has invented a totally new conceptual framework that transforms not only philosophical practice but even thought itself: In universalizing the theoretical conditions of philosophical theorising through his unique formal inventions, Laruelle develops a new form of thinking: one that initiates a transcendental and non-decisional theory for philosophical decision in a militant and heretical way.
This volume follows Laruelle's ambitious project of constructing this universal but non- systemic theory of philosophical decision. It is unquestionable that the technical rigour and heretical radicality of 'Non-Philosophy' will have a major impact on contemporary philosophy and future theoretical practices.
