(p.1) Introduction
Cut of the Real

Katerina Kolozova

François Laruelle

Columbia University Press

This introductory chapter sets out the theoretical foundations of this volume, which aims to conceive of possibilities of rethinking the real by building on the legacy of poststructuralist feminist philosophy and, in particular, a philosophy that is primarily grounded in the work of Judith Butler and her reappropriations of Foucault and Lacan. This goal is not the product of a mere “philosophical desire” to introduce a “realist twist” to what is otherwise poststructuralism. What is at stake here is expanding the critical possibilities of a potent feminist philosophical legacy by affirming the relevance of theoretical investigations about the effects of the real on our discursive universes. Such a goal can be accomplished only by developing an adequate epistemological apparatus.

Keywords:   feminist philosophy, poststructuralist philosophy, real, Judith Butler, Foucalut, Lacan, poststructuralism
