Everything you need to understand both Laruelle's critique of difference and his project of non-philosophy. Hailed as a key thinker by important philosophers such as Gilles Deleuze and Ray Brassier, the 2010 translation of Philosophies of Difference has made Francois Laruelle's work accessible to the English-speaking world in time to meet a rising tide of interest. This new guide takes students and academics through Philosophies of Difference, following the development of Laruelle's thought, unpicking the difficult structure, discussing the strengths and weaknesses of the text and evaluating the arguments for and against his ideas. Readers will find everything they need to understand both Laruelle's critique of Difference and his project of non-philosophy: one of the most intriguing avenues in contemporary thought. It critiques philosophical Difference as a whole and the 3 specific models treated by Laruelle: Nietzsche-Deleuze, Heidegger and Derrida. It situates Philosophies of Difference within the rest of Laruelle's work and contemporary European thought. It explains the key shift from philosophy to non-philosophy which makes Laruelle so intriguing to philosophers today. It shows how Laruelle impacted on the work of Deleuze, Badiou and the Speculative Realism movement.
