Future Christ: A Lesson in Heresy

Translator: Anthony Paul Smith

Paperback

Price: $24.95

Overview

Future Christ is one of the first English translations of the work of François Laruelle, one of the most exciting voices in contemporary French philosophy and the creator of the practice of ‘non-philosophy’.

In this work Laruelle draws on material from the traditions of Christianity, Judaism and Gnosticism, but he does so by suspending their authority. This adventure in non-philosophy does not claim to think for religion, but from it as material and with disinterest towards its self-given status as ultimate authority. This provocative, yet remarkably accessible book introduces philosophy to the lessons of heresy and makes use of them in a non-philosophical dualysis of messianism and apocalypticism. Laruelle investigates the heretic question, analogous to but historically distinguished from the Jewish question, to develop a non-Christian science that struggles against and for our World. Future Christ thus opens up novel ways of thinking within existing religious and philosophical thought and marks an incisive and wide-ranging non-philosophical engagement with key contemporary debates in philosophy and theology.
