Gilles ChâteletAn uproarious portrait of the evils of ‘market democracy’ and a technical manual for its innermost ideological workings, this is the story of how the perverted legacy of liberalism sought to knead Marx’s ‘free peasant’ into a statistical ‘average man’—pliant raw material for the sausage-machine of postmodernity.
Negarestani sharply asserts abstraction's origins as the dialectic between form (mathematics) and sensible matter (physics) and its otherwise flat interpretation in art history, and presents us with the redemptive possibilities for its enrichment and diversification through the lens of artistic practice.
This volume provides a collection of the writings of François Laruelle, one of the most creative and subversive philosophers working today. The book opens with an introduction based upon an in-depth interview with the author and closes with several experimental texts, most of which have not previously appeared in English translation.
