Philosophies of Difference
Laruelle then uses this analysis to introduce a new theoretical practice of non-philosophical thought. Rather than presenting a narrative historical overview, Laruelle provides a series of rigorous critiques of the various interpretations of difference in Hegel, Nietzsche and Deleuze, Heidegger and Derrida.
From Laruelle’s innovative theoretical perspective, the forms of philosophical difference that emerge appear as variations upon a unique, highly abstract structure of philosophical decision, the self-posing and self-legitimating essence of philosophy itself. Reconceived in terms of philosophical decision, the seemingly radical concept of philosophical difference is shown to configure rather the identity of philosophy as such, which thus becomes manifest as a contingent and no longer absolute form of thinking.
The way is thereby opened for initiating a new form of thought, anticipated here with the development of a key notion of non-philosophy, the Vision-in-One.

Feb 03, Phillip rated it really liked it Shelves: For Laurelle philosophies of difference reconstitute, at a point of maximum axiomatization, the condition which has determined greco-occidental philosophy across its history. In philosophies of difference the autopositioning of an ideal-real mixture, always the fundamental characteristic of philosophical thought, the ‘decision’ characterising this thought, is perpetually reconstituted for philosophies of difference soley in the mode of its overcoming.
Differential philosophy must perpetually pre For Laurelle philosophies of difference reconstitute, at a point of maximum axiomatization, the condition which has determined greco-occidental philosophy across its history.
Differential philosophy must perpetually presuppose the transcendental ideal-real mixture which it overcomes, in order to acheive this act constituting its identity. This reproduction is interiorised, and forms the transcedental ground of its possiblity. For Laurelle such thinking will always have produced a parasitic relationship with the properly transcendental, immediate condition which Laurelle determines “the phiposophies transcendental insofar as in its immediacy, it denies the possibility of any autopositional cut.
The one is that which latuelle always be, necessarily, indifferent to any act of autopositional determination or ‘philosophical activism’. It is absolutely irreducible and in its irreducibility absolutizes thought against the possiblity of being determined through the presupposition of a real-ideal mixture taken as sufficient expression of its essence.
The one will be absolutely resistant to any such mode of accountancy. Differential philosophy will be that philosophical mode which absoutizes the philosophical decision, internalising it in thought in the mode of its perpetual overcoming, precisely at the moment when it believes itself to overturned any such autopositioning.
In this way it is the paradigmatic mode of greco-occidental philosophical practice, a supra-logocentrism rather than irreversible overturning of the logocentric. It sustains the philosophical decision at the very limit of its possible extinction.
In its relation to the one, a relation always suppressed, differential philosophy illuminates necessarily the possiblity of the non-philosophical solution non-philosohpical insofar as the one refuses any mode of autopositioning which is the basis of philosophical practice of an always immediate, irreducible real, discoverable behind any philosophical, decisional representation of it.
All of which is a long way of saying that reality exists and doesn’t much care what we have to say about it. Laurelle describes his thought as heterodox in its relation to philosophical history. This book deals with the holiest cows of contemporary continental thought Nietzsche, Derrida, Heidegger and Deleuze in an incredible way.
Very worth reading if you are interested in these thinkers. Sep 25, Rui Coelho rated it liked it. Laruelle’s “my philosophy is not philosophy” act is unconvincing but I don’t mind playing along since Ethics of the Stranger was a great take on ethics and one o my all time favorite books. I found Philosophies of Difference less impressive but I still had a good time reading it.
