Cut of the Real

François Laruelle

Columbia University Press

The non-philosophy of Laruelle establishes theoretical grounds for a thinking that can escape the impasse of “specularization,” of autoreflexivity and autolegitimization as the defining constituent of philosophy. The unavoidable route of accomplishing this, according to non-philosophy, is establishing a unilaterally situated thought. This involves a cognitive posture devoid of any relationism produced by and situated within the doctrinal horizon(s), producing a thought of singularity that only unilaterally correlates with the real. This chapter attempts to make use of this Laruellian proposition in order to create a thinking stance that is faithful to the reality of the lived identitary subjection. It is also faithful to the reality of the transcendental identitary frame (the identity subjugation as prescribed by the world) acting in such a compelling way upon the real ([of] the human-in-human) that it itself acts as an instance of the real.
