Ebook Description

Fran�ois Laruelle�s �non-philosophy� or �non-standard philosophy� represents a bold attempt to rethink how philosophy is practiced in relation to other domains of knowledge. There is a growing interest in Laruelle�s work in the English-speaking world, but his work is often misunderstood as a wholesale critique of philosophy. In this book Anthony Paul Smith dispels this misunderstanding and shows how Laruelle�s critique of philosophy is guided by the positive aim of understanding philosophy�s structure so that it can be creatively recast with other discourses and domains of human knowledge, from politics and ethics to science and religion.
