He updates this problematic and historical complexity and demonstrates the final emergence of a concept largely containing the future of non-philosophy, that of "non-thetic transcendence" which aims to settle the issue of Nietzsche and Heidegger.
This eminently readable critical introduction will put Laruelle on the map of Anglophone audiences. Gangle provides a magisterial account of Laruelle's difficult notions of Difference, in-One, and duality in their direct reworking of Nietzsche-Deleuze, Heidegger, and Derrida. But beyond that his narration of the philosophical history of the one and the multiple is strikingly original in its own right.

Philosophies of Difference
Qty :. 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. This will certainly change with Gangle's translation of this indispensable text, which is probably the most important summation of Laruelle's 'non-philosophy'.

Philosophies of Difference: A Critical Introduction to Non-Philosophy
Born in the same year as the already famous Alain Badiou , he is no longer young. But while Laruelle already has a sizable following of Anglophone readers who discovered him in the original French, it took until for this first book-length work to appear in English. The book is skillfully translated and introduced by Rocco Gangle, who does good work in making Laruelle available to a wider readership, quite apart from the objections I will register to the style and content of the book. Laruelle's general term for his work is "non-philosophy," and the implicit historical claim is as radical as it sounds.
