whatmakespistachionuts asked: great post on Laruelle. I've been meaning to get into him for a while, do you have any recommendations on where to start with him?
Your best bet would be to get in on the e-seminar I’m currently taking. It costs $50, but Laruelle is just so damn recondite that he’s more or less inaccessible to anyone except Ph.D students in philosophy (which I’m obviously not). As well, you get access to draft translations for books and papers that won’t come out until 2013. If you’re interested, just contact firstname.lastname@example.org and he’ll set you up. There have been a lot of late entrants, so you won’t stick out or anything.
If you’re masochistic enough to try to go it on your own, however, the book Principles of Non-Philosophy is infinitely more lucid than any of his other texts that I’ve read so far, but unfortunately it won’t be coming out until June 2013. The parts of Anti-Badiou that I’ve read were extremely exciting, plus really clear if you’re familiar with the basics of quantum physics. (There are tons of introductory books on the topic, and most of them are very accessible.) It isn’t coming out until February, though.
As for secondary lit, John Mullarkey’s Post-Continental Philosophy: An Outline looks really clear, but I haven’t gotten the chance to read it yet. Also, NP is popular on hardcore theory blogs such as Speculative Heresy and Planomenology (which is no longer active), so that might be your best bet for a general introduction, along with essay collections like The Speculative Turn.
Actually, come to think of it, Nick Srnicek has a tumblr, and he knows way more about NP than I do, so if you’re dead-set on trekking through Laruelle alone, he’s the guy to ask for recommendations.
