Ray Brassier | SenseLogic
Brassier absolutely avoids lazy generalizations, every page is working and the argument is always under development. If you want to get more of a sense of Laruelle it is definitely worth a read.
Most impressive is that Brassier in one text covers thinkers as different as Quine and Deleuze, to Churchland and Henry all with equal capability and insight. He doesn’t appear to be a partisan philosopher but is equally as willing to draw from any school in order to develop the argument, although the essential framework is non-philoosphical.
Alien Theory: The Decline of Materialism in the Name of Matter by Ray Brassier
This really goes to the heart of the problems of current philosophy and not in any fadish manner. It is a seriously impressive ‘first effort’. May 03, Niklas rated it liked it Shelves: As always with Brassier, things can get a bit over-complicated and aggressive, but it’s nevertheless an impressive PhD thesis.
