The ant-ibadiou traces a conceptual portrait of a Badiou that is more an artefact of Laruelle’s method than a faithful image.

See Peter Osborne, “Neo-Classic: We require further details as to the new version of non-philosophy, and as to the analytic means that will allow us to detect in Badiou the indestructible residue of philosophy, and its conservation-reeducation by Cantor and Mao under the sign of Plato.

Bloomsbury Academic; Reprint edition February 28, Language: In this text Laruelle wagers a polemic despite those risks and engages with Badiou by aping the latter’s own polemical style to uncover what he sees as the authoritarian nature of Badiou’s philosophy. In short, philosophy appears as a helicopter parent, always speaking for the ignorant maojsm who does not know what is good for it and never will. This compelling and highly original book represents a confrontation between two of the most radical thinkers at work in France today: Most of his targets, however, have not been philosophers of talent equal to his own, and so he has rarely risked as much as Laruelle does here.

If the risk of a polemic is that the polemicist falls flat in his own writing, Laruelle quite deftly does not try to meet Badiou punch for punch.

Up until Badiou, philosophy was educative and pedagogical; with him, it is re-educated by mathematics.

In “Matrices and Principles” he develops the differences in what could be anti-badiu meta-philosophy for the two thinkers. Badiou’s entire project aims to re-educate philosophy through one science: It is worth noting that pgilosophy these chapters Laruelle’s aping of Badiou’s polemical style is fully displayed and that many of the most entertaining lines are found here. What results is a true disagreement, the first in a very long time.


In response to the previous review I’d point philoophy that in Principles of Non-Philosophy Laruelle specifically targets Badious “anti-philosophy” as remaining within the principle of sufficient philosophy and as auto-positional.

Adrian Johnston – – Contemporary French Civilization 33 1: He continues, saying, The Real of immanence, by virtue of the particle that it configures, is the non-dialectical solution to contradiction and to antinomies. But what we also see in this final chapter is the scope of non-philosophy, a scope ingo moves from what we would normally refer to as meta-philosophy, to epistemology, then to philosophy of religion, and finally to ethics and political philosophy.
