The Concept of Non-Photography develops a rigorous new thinking of the photograph in its relation to science, philosophy and art, and introduces the reader to most of the key concepts of Laruelle's 'non-philosophy'. Laruelle explores what the photographic mode of seeing could be, removed from its technological conditions, its aesthetic history, its relation to painting, and all of the theoretical frameworks that have been thrust upon it. The object is not to re-interpret photography philosophically but to move towards a non-photography, an science that would be able to describe photography without displacing its essence through 'philosophical decision'.In the process, we discover that photography has always inhabited philosophy: A certain spontaneous self-understanding of philosophy has taken photography as its model, and has prevented the philosopher from ever truly thinking photography. If photography can only be thought non-philosophically, philosophy, itself, can only be thought non-photographically – that is, through a science that does not fall prey to the arche-photography of philosophical self-imaging.Rather than another book on the 'philosophy of photography', The Concept of Non-Photography is therefore a book on the photography of philosophy. Much more than an 'application' of 'non-philosophy', The Concept of Non-Photography provides an invaluable introduction to Laruelle's thought, a growing influence on contemporary philosophy

The first collection of critical essays on the work of this most original thinker. Francois Laruelle is one of the most important French philosophers of the last 20 years, and as his texts have become available in English there has been a rising tide of interest in his work, particularly on the concept of 'Non-Philosophy'. Non-philosophy radically rethinks many of the most cutting-edge concepts such as immanence, pluralism, resistance, science, democracy, decisionism, Marxism, theology and materialism. It also expands our view of what counts as philosophical thought, through art, science and politics, and beyond to fields as varied as film, animality and material objects.

In The Medium of Contingency Elie Ayache builds upon his ground-breaking book The Blank Swan, in exploring the intersection of philosophy and finance, introducing new notions of price and market. Inverting the received view, he now sees a creation of matter in both the market and its metaphysics, rather than pure speculation. Once recognized as the proper medium of contingency and disassociated from the probabilistic and statistical tools traditionally used to model it, the market can be thought as 'real', in a new sense of reality corresponding to the new sense of matter. To bring this new and original perspective, The Medium of Contingency builds on probability theory as first formalized by von Mises and Kolmogorov, and later revisited by Shafer and Vovk. It utilises the author's extensive experience in derivatives pricing technology and software, as well as his work in the philosophy of contingency and contingent claims, to propose a new philosophical interpretation of Brownian motion and of the Black-Scholes-Merton formula. Then it completes the overturning of the traditional view of the market by arguing that there should be no difference, ultimately, between an underlying asset and the derivative written on it. This book does not aim to change the market but the way we must think of it. It is the author's conviction that there can be no philosophy of the market, and consequently no thinking of it, without a philosophy of contingent claims and of derivative pricing. The book provides the missing piece, which the philosophy of probability cannot provide alone. Its scope, however, extends beyond the strict critique of financial mathematics, as it also, and perhaps most importantly, delivers the author's definitive treatment of the philosophically prominent and recently much discussed notion of contingency.

Theorists critique photography for ÒobjectifyingÓ its subjects and manipulating appearance for the sake of art. In this bold counterargument, John Roberts recasts photographyÕs violating powers and aesthetic technique as part of a complex Òsocial ontologyÓ that exposes the hierarchies, divisions, and exclusions behind appearances. Photography must Òarrive unannouncedÓ and Òget in the way of the world,Ó Roberts argues, committing to the truth-claims of the spectator over the self-interests and sensitivities of the subject. Yet even though the violating capacity of the photograph results from external power relations, the photographer is still faced with an ethical choice: whether to advance photographyÕs truth-claims on the basis of these powers or to diminish or veil these powers to protect the integrity of the subject. PhotographyÕs acts of intrusion and destabilization constantly test the photographer at the point of production, in the darkroom, and at the computer, especially in our 24-hour digital image culture. RobertsÕs refunctioning of photographyÕs place in the world is therefore critically game-changing, as it politically and theoretically restores the reputation of the art.

L'image photographique fixe sur sels d'argent l'empreinte des choses ou des êtres qui se sont trouvés placés devant l'objectif. Le dispositif de la prise de vue est tel que la scène enregistrée paraît, pour le spectateur, toujours peu ou prou liée à l'expérience sensible de l'opérateur, à celle du (ou des) modèle(s). Souvent, à la fin du vingtième siècle, dans le domaine de la littérature comme dans le champ très diversifié des arts visuels, des clichés ont été appréhendés comme traces du passé, comme jalons d'une histoire individuelle ou collective. Des images argentiques sont invoquées par des écrivains engagés dans une entreprise de reconstitution du temps révolu. Des vues - prélevées sur le continuum des apparences ou entièrement mises en scène - se trouvent rassemblées, dans des livres ou sur les murs des galeries, pour composer des formes variées de " récits de soi " dont la fiction n'est pas exclue. Les études réunies ici tissent des liens entre des champs distincts afin d'interroger les rapports susceptibles de se nouer aujourd'hui entre photographie et projet à dimension autobiographique.

The title of this book, Language and Beyond, suggests a dynamic relationship between two poles in which language is confronted with an otherness that is apparently fundamental to it, and towards which it is seen to be reaching. But what is the beyond of language? Is it an object or an image? Do images, visual or aural, actually constitute a beyond of language? The interdependence of words might appear to perpetuate an absence instead, and yet signs can also be seen to establish a presence by their very materiality. The articles in this collection investigate and therefore postulate some form of dialogue between word and image, but they also test semiotic borders, examining the various shades of the interdependence, conflict or dominance, and the orientation of the relationship.Ce livre s'adresse aux spécialistes, chercheurs et étudiants, ainsi qu'à un public plus large, aux lecteurs ouverts aux théories, méthodes et pratiques de la recherche interdisciplinaire. Son titre suggère un rapport dynamique entre le langage et ses au-delàs: une bipolarité tour à tour assumée et transgressée, voire intériorisée. Mais quels sont ces au-delàs? Et comment les objets, images, sons ou représentations mentales sont-ils investis ou réinvestis par le langage? Dès lors que la nature séquentielle de ce dernier semble souligner le caractère dérivé et marginal de ses au-delàs, il suffit au contraire de la matérialité même des signes, pour les projeter au coeur de l'expression verbale.Les articles de ce recueil postulent un dialogue entre le mot et l'image, mais scrutent également les confins des systèmes de signes, les modes et degrés de leurs interdépendances et de leurs oppositions.

L’auteur propose ici un modèle sémiotique de compréhension du signe photographique appelé « contexture photographique ». Dans un premier temps, l’auteur offre une mise en situation de la problématique axée sur les notions de transparence et d’opacité du signe. Deuxièmement, il présente un parcours historique de l’état de la question photographique s’appuyant sur ces notions paradigmatiques résumées, à la suite de François Récanati, par la formule « transparence-cum-opacité ». Le tout est suivi d’une analyse d’une photographie d’Alexandre Rodchenko, Le Sauteur à la perche (1936), en se basant notamment sur quelques concepts théoriques issus des sciences cognitives qui proposent, par exemple, que la cognition opère sur la base de catégorisations à la fois perceptives et conceptuelles. Il est ensuite suggéré un modèle tétradique d’interprétation du signe photographique inspiré des travaux théoriques de Philippe Dubois, cependant modifié par les analyses et réflexions de l’auteur. Quelques exemples de mise en application du modèle de contexture photographique sont proposés en fin de parcours. L’auteur s’interroge également sur la pertinence de considérer le signe photographique comme une nouveauté dans le champ des représentations symboliques, dans la mesure où la photographie aurait partie liée avec d’anciens schémas conceptuels pré-modernes.

Ces dernières années, l’importance des thèmes liés aux frontières est allée crescendo, dans l’actualité politique et dans les débats intellectuels. Aujourd’hui, les drames qui se jouent aux frontières de l’Europe questionnent les fondements des communautés politiques contemporaines à travers les limites de celles-ci. Dans ce contexte, le présent ouvrage n’est pas un plaidoyer « pour » ou « contre » l’ouverture ou le renforcement des frontières de type nationales-étatiques. Prenant acte des avancées des Border Studies, il invite à prendre du recul par rapport à une notion qui semble saturée, presque étouffante, et entend faire droit à une diversité de significations et d’usages du faire frontière. A travers leurs différents objets et terrains et grâce à la complémentarité de leurs approches – l’anthropologie, la sociologie, la sociologie politique, les études européennes et la théorie politique – les contributions rassemblées éclairent les manières dont les communautés et leurs frontières se construisent mutuellement.
