In his interpreting of Marx, François Laruelle indicates a parallel among the position performed by means of the value-form in capital and that of ‘philosophizability’ as a kind governing the economic climate of considering. taking over either Laruelle and Marx, Katerina Kolozova spells out the hyperlink among Marx’s demystification of the metaphysics of capital and Laruelle’s demystification of the shape of philosophy in inspiration. yet Kolozova is going past Laruelle by utilizing Marx to concretize the fundamental different types of ‘non-standard philosophy’ even as she makes use of Laruelle to render immanent the types of Marxist concept: labour-power, commodity-fetishism, alienation, exploitation, and revolution. this can be a passionately engaged paintings that dramatizes the novel stakes of Marx’s and Laruelle’s tasks whereas drawing creatively at the paintings of Butler, Firestone, and Haraway alongside the way in which. it truly is straight away the absolute best advent to Laruelle’s appropriation of Marx and a Marxian radicalization of Laruelle’s ‘non-standard philosophy.’ ~ Ray Brassier

Katerina Kolozova provides the 1st exact and finished research of my interpretation of Marx in my ebook “Introduction to Non-Marxism,” and extra quite often, of latest Marxism. She treats Marx’s texts like an open chôra, which permits her to envision what “non-standard Marxism” provides, rightly or wrongly, to the conceptualization of the true and extra essentially of the “determination within the ultimate instance.” She deals compelling analyses of fetishism, alienation, the natural physique in its jouissance and agony, and immanent riot, and he or she additionally exams out new options for these kinds of difficulties. yet she additionally re-reads in a well timed and astounding means the aftermath of the 2008 monetary difficulty. and eventually, she ends via addressing the matter of utopia in terms of communist-feminist cyborgs! In energetic model, Kolozova re-awakens Marxism and rescues it from its torpor. ~ François Laruelle

Departing from the normal readings of Karl Marx’s Capital and different of his works, when it comes to François Laruelle’s “radicalization of concepts,” Katerina Kolozova identifies a theoretical kernel in Marx’s inspiration whose serious and interpretative strength might be hired irrespective of its next interpretations within the philosophical mainstream. The latter involves a strategy of abstracting a philosophical legacy — or fairly, of placing it in brackets — after which codifying a heritage of a discovered interpretation confirmed in intended constancy to the theoretical undertaking of a “master.” reading the grasp implies a mastery of doctrinal instruments, which leads to developing a catechism of the emblems of the grasp. And this catechism interferes, Kolozova argues, with extra direct encounters with Marx’s writings.

As we all know, Marx’s carefully descriptive language unravels the novel middle of capitalist financial methods and, via that unraveling, additionally finds capitalism’s important exploitation and subjugation of human hard work. towards a thorough Metaphysics of Socialism makes an attempt to get well and emancipate the proposal of metaphysics during this situation by means of advantage of radicalizing thought’s come upon with the true. Kolozova argues that this metaphysical drama is on the foundation of the social and monetary injustices of latest worldwide economic-political realities, and he or she illustrates this situation in discussions of the matter of salary hard work, computerized hypothesis because the middle of overdue capitalism, the post-2008 monetary situation, the prestige of know-how in past due capitalism, sexual distinction and gender, and the human and non-human body’s subjugation capitalist automation.

"The actual isn't really unavoidably a actual exteriority. fairly, it's an exteriority within the feel that it truly is open air the achieve of our linguistic intervention, appropriation and re-invention. the genuine is an impact that's skilled as violence (as the implacable restrict to our signifying automatism), as a linguistically non-negotiable predicament, as that which Lacan could name the tuché that occurs to the (signifying) automaton within the type of trauma. Such an example is the idea that of capital and the fabric and immaterial realities it creates. The ideology of capitalism stipulates the chances of any truth we will be able to inhabit and picture. hence, the exteriority which holds the prestige of the genuine isn't unavoidably actual. in addition, the genuine isn't really inevitably external because it will be an internally skilled limit/ation to the subject’s signifying pretensions."

She is additionally vacationing professor at a number of universities in Former Yugoslavia and Bulgaria. In 2009, Kolozova was once a vacationing pupil within the division of Rhetoric (Program of serious thought) on the collage of California-Berkeley.
