François Laruelle’s Christo-Fiction is Unbound and On the Loose Somewhere Out There

"François Laruelle's lifelong project of "nonphilosophy," or "nonstandard philosophy," thinks past the theoretical limits of Western philosophy to realize new relations among religion, science, politics, and art.

Trauma and the Immanence of Eternity

In my previous post I've attempted to trace, clarify and briefly define certain positions and oppositions within the philosophical field today. It is my conviction that at the root of philosophical enquiry lies a series of dialectical relationships between affirmation and negation, transcendence and immanence, reality in-itself and reality for-us, finitude and infinity, being and...

Melancholia and the Cartesian Subject

In his lecture On Melancholy and an essay entitled Melancholy and the Act, Zizek claims that melancholia occurs not when we lose the object, but rather when the object is still here although we no longer desire it. According to Zizek, melancholia as Freud defines it in Mourning and Melancholia, shouldn’t be interpreted as if it... Continue Reading →

Transendental Materyalizm, Diyalektik ve Plastisite (Johnston, Zizek, Malabou)

Adrian Johnston 2010 yılında Real Objects/Material Subjects adlı felsefi etkinlikte yaptığı Naturalism or Anti-naturalism? No thanks, both are worse: Science, Materialism and Slavoj Zizek adlı konuşmada Zizek’in ontolojisini neden Transendental Materyalizm diye adlandırdığını net bir şekilde ortaya koyar. Johnston’a göre özelde Zizek’in, genel olarak ise transendental materyalizmin amacı cogito gibi bir öznelliğin olumsuzlayıcılığının/olumsuzluğununmaddi varlıktan nasıl doğduğunu...

Freedom’s Fairytale? Pt. 3 Narratology, the Ancestral and the Real (via Naught Thought)

Several points in the post are indebted to discussions here and here. Derrida's notion of language play and the purported death of the transcendental signifier seems to have anchored narratology, as it is understood in cultural studies and many veins of literary studies, in the swamp of post-structuralism. Furthermore, the phenomenological and post-Kantian articulation of... Continue Reading →
