All concepts Are Equal is either an creation to the paintings of French thinker François Laruelle and an workout in nonhuman considering. For Laruelle, commonplace kinds of philosophy proceed to dominate our versions of what counts as exemplary idea and data. in contrast, what Laruelle calls his “non-standard” technique makes an attempt to carry democracy into notion, simply because all sorts of thinking—including the nonhuman—are equal.
John Ó Maoilearca examines how philosophy may well seem whilst seen with non-philosophical and nonhuman eyes. He does so by means of refusing to give an explanation for Laruelle via orthodox philosophy, opting in its place to persist with the constitution of a movie (Lars von Trier’s documentary The 5 Obstructions) for example of the non-standard procedure. Von Trier’s movie is a meditation at the inventive limits set via movie, either technologically and aesthetically, and the way those limits can push our adventure of film—and of ourselves—beyond what's in general deemed “the ideal human.”
All recommendations Are equivalent adopts film’s constraints in its personal test by way of displaying how Laruelle’s notably new type of philosophy is better provided via our such a lot nonhuman kind of thought—that present in cinema.
