Description

© Graham Harman, 2011. All rights reserved. An in-depth study of the emerging French philosopher Quentin Meillassoux Freshly called to a professorship at the Sorbonne, and described as the fastest-rising French philosopher since Derrida, Meillassoux's star has continued to rise. This expanded edition of the only book on Meillassoux remains the best introduction to one of Europe's most promising thinkers. In this expanded edition of his landmark 2011 work on Meillassoux, Graham Harman assesses Meillassoux's publications in English so far, covering new materials not available to the Anglophone reader at the time of the first edition. Along with Meillassoux's startling book on Mallarmé's poem 'Un coup de dés jamais n'abolira le hasard,' Harman discusses several new English articles by Meillassoux, including his controversial April 2012 Berlin lecture and its critique of 'subjectalism'. It also includes an insightful interview with Meillassoux and first-time translations of excerpts from L'Inexistence divine (The Divine Inexistence), his famous but still unpublished major book.
