December 2011/May 2012

Starting this winter, Professor François Laruelle will give two annual seminars and workshops on Non-Standard Philosophy at the London Graduate School. The first of these events will be on December 6th and 7th 2011, and the second will take place in May 2012.

Professor Laruelle has taught at both the University of Paris X, and the Collège international de philosophie, and is the author of over twenty books, including Les philosophies de la différence (1986), Principes de la non-philosophie (1996), Le Christ futur (2002), and, most recently, Le Concept de non-photographie and Anti-Badiou (both 2011) – all of which have either just appeared or will soon appear in English translation.

Over this forty year period, Laruelle has constructed one of the most demanding, methodical, and provocative intellectual practices in contemporary theory – an absolutely immanent materialism of thought. The purpose of these series of talks at the LGS will be both to cover the conceptual background to Non-Standard Philosophy and to explore its consequences for theory throughout the arts, sciences, and humanities.  The Autumn events will comprise one afternoon workshop on December 6, 2-5pm in Swedenborg Hall, Bloomsbury (Wynter Room) that will be open to 25 postgraduates and faculty working in areas related to this field (reservation required), followed by one lecture from 2-4pm on December 7 in Swedenborg Hall – this will be open to members of the public (no reservation required, but come early to get a seat).

Further information is available through

Professor John Mullarkey

UPDATE: The Laruelle Workshop on December 6th is now full. Any new people wishing to participate will be put on a reserve list. (Please note that there will be a second workshop on May 15, 2012). The lecture on this December 7th, however, does not require a reservation and so remains open to all – though do come early to guarantee a place.
