IMperialism and State (Interview with Pravda)

The essay you published with Laika Publishing is called „Imperialism, State Fascism, and the War Machines of Capital.“ How do you define these individual terms? The war machine is a Deleuze/Guattari term, a machine that does not have war as its primary goal, but rather the creation of a creative…

My Parmenides

Laruelle, Francois. “Mon Parmenide.” La Decision philosophique 7 (1989): 105-114. On the argument: The One is One because it is One rather than because it is or is Other. Non-Parmenidian Axioms 1. If the One (etc.), the One is the real identity that founds a transcendental rather than logical…

68, without end. Exchanges with Jean-Luc Nancy

Interview (in translation) that he gave to Carole Dely, for the journal Sens publique on the occasion of the fortieth anniversary of france’s May 68. Carole Dely – May 68 is often presented as one of the most important social movements in French history, which was both a students and workers mov…

Becoming ungovernable – On Di Cesare’s book „The Time of Revolt“

The Italian philosopher Donatella Di Cesare’s minoritarian book „The Time of Revolt“ can certainly be read as a complement and extension to Andrew Culp’s „Dark Deleuze“ and Joshua Clover’s „Riot.Strike.Riot.“ From the very first pages, the police as a formation of the security stat…

The Problem of The „Problem“ – On Deleuze (and Althusser)

If one does not read Deleuze exclusively in the context of a position critical of reason, which is commonly paraphrased as transcendental empiricism (cf. Rölli 2003), nor as a proponent of an ontological realism (cf. De Landa 2006), then Deleuze (and Guattari) could also be used to describe socio-e…

Red Giant

1.      Introduction In 2012, we published a paper in the Journal of Critical Globalization Studies titled ‘Imperialism and Financialism: The Story of a Nexus’. Our topic was the chameleon-like Marxist notion of imperialism and how its different theories related to finance. Here is the…

Manifest Destiny

One might be forgiven for thinking that America is dead. The country does not have a president. Biden, if he ever existed, has been annihilated by the disaster of the retreat. This country does not have one people but two, and they are at war with each other. The allies are melting away and, last bu…

On Marxism

Marxism constitutes one of the main currents of contemporary thought. By now, there is no counting the works that set out to expound, combat, or even ‘supersede’ it. It is already no easy task to find the path that cuts through this mass of polemical works and leads to the texts. Moreover, there…

Capitalocene and fossil capital (malm; Moore)

In 2012, global CO2 emissions were 58% higher than in 1990, causing, among other things, hurricanes to become stronger due to higher temperatures in ocean catchments and Arctic ecosystems to reach a number of tipping points. The limit at which the ice sheet in Greenland irreversibly melts and a rise…

Demonstrations Against the Health Pass
a Non-Movement?

Taken from Ill Will Introduction to the French edition: The demonstrations against the health passthat have been held for seven weeks and that have managed to traverse the usual summer desert have something exceptional to them. Some find in them the emergence of a spontaneous, angry movement like th…

For a theory of destituent power

From a public lecture in Athens (16/11/2013), at the invitation of and organised by the Nicos Poulantzas Institute and SYRIZA Youth, and originally posted on Chronos 
 A reflection on the destiny of democracy today here in Athens is in some way disturbing, because it obliges us to think the end of…

Imperialism and Financialism. A Story of a Nexus

Over the past century, the nexus of imperialism and financialism has become a major axis of Marxist theory and praxis. Many Marxists consider this nexus to be a prime cause of our worldly ills, but the historical role they ascribe to it has changed dramatically over time. The key change concerns the…

Dominant Capital and the Government

This note contextualizes the ongoing U.S. policy shift toward greater ‘regulation’ of large corporations. Cory Doctorow (2021) and Blair Fix (2021) are optimistic about this shift. We doubt it. 1.      The Limits of Power Large U.S.-based corporations are extremely powerful, but the gr…

Di Muzio on ‘Sabotage’

Note from Blair Fix: In a series of essays published in 2013 and 2014 on capitaspower.com, political economist Tim Di Muzio explored the concept of ‘sabotage’ as it applies to capitalist power. I recently rediscovered these essays and was so impressed by them that I have reposted them here as a…

Death haunts every line of flight, tempting revolutionary forms of self-destruction into becoming forms of reactionary suicide

Thesis: States and state-capture [comparison + appropriation] are solutions to the problem posed by the lines of flight encountered in the historical process of State formation. But while both capture and its evasion presupposes these lines of flight as indeterminate processes of destratification, t…

The Grand Crash

Some Notes on Housing Markets in China, and What This Tells Us About Wider Economic Realities taken from here Context of a Crisis With the impending collapse of housing conglomerate Evergrande, focus has been placed on the housing market in China, a market estimated to be worth around $52 trillion o…

How Dominant are Big US Corporations?

I recently had a lively Twitter debate with Jonathan Nitzan, Shimshon Bichler and Cory Doctorow1 about the future of big corporations in the United States. The debate was prompted by Doctorow’s piece ‘End of the line for Reaganomics’, which I reposted on capitalaspower.com. Doctorow argue…

Theory of The Object (Introduction)

We live in an age of objects. Today there are more objects and more kinds of objects than ever before in human history, and they continue to multi-ply at a mind-boggling rate. The sciences have succeeded in transforming almost every dimension of reality into one kind of object or another. They have…

A Lesson on Non-Philosophy

A Lesson on Non-Philosophy François Laruelle In En tant qu’un: la « non-philosophie » expliquĂ©e aux philosophes (Paris: Aubier, 1991), p.177-197. 1. The first task is to clarify the field of non-philosophy: its programme, its limits, its objects. And especially its name. The term “non-phi…

Of Being-in-Common

Below, we share a chapter of this work entitled, “Of Being-in-Common”, which was also published in united states as a separate essay in a volume entitled, Community at Loose Ends (1991). 
 What could be more common than to be, than being? We are. Being, or existence, is what we share. When it…

Communism, The Word

Notes for the London Conference Birbeck College The following are the notes that Jean-Luc Nancy prepared for the conference ‘On the Idea of Communism’, March 2009. An edited version is available in Costas Douzinas & Slavoj Zizek (eds), The Idea of Communism (Verso, London 2010) 145–53. 
 N…

From the universality of progress to cosmotechnics

Autonomies share below an interview with Yuk Hui for the french magazine, Ballast (09/07/2020). “Change the system”, “fight the system”, “profit from the system”: the space of politics and the media is saturated with this reference – a world order that is never precisely defined but wh…

What is the difference between process philosophy and the philosophy of movement?

Process Ontology and Becoming The historical precursors of the philosophy of motion have also had a major influence on a number of contemporary process ontologies, or ontologies of becoming. Process ontology, like the ontology of movement, emphasizes flux and becoming but is not necessarily identica…

“Clicks’n’cuts is not a genre”

 What are the tactics of imperceptibility and opacity that appear independent of the forces and relations of capital and are useful for the destruction of this world? The zones of imperceptibility and opacity are less features of reality that can be applied in any situation, but are instruments tha…

Laruelle and generic Science (quant-philosophy)

Laruelle strives for a non-philosophical or generic machine that combines a philosophy robbed of its sufficiency (without comprehensive transcendentality) with a quantum physics robbed of its mathemathical apparatus (without calculation). The turning out of the non-standard philosophy from the philo…
