Translated by Taylor Adkins.

In The Dictionary of Non-Philosophy, the French thinker Francois Laruelle does something unprecedented for philosophers: he provides an enormous dictionary with a theoretical introduction, carefully crafting his thoughts to explain the numerous terms and neologisms that he deems necessary for the project of non-philosophy.

With a collective of thinkers also interested in the project, Laruelle has taken up the difficult task of creating an essential guide for entering into his non-standard, non-philosophical terrain. And for Laruelle, even the idea of a dictionary and what a dictionary is become material for his non-philosophical inquiries.

As his opening note begins, "Thus on the surface and within the philosophical folds of the dictionary, identity and its effect upon meaning are what is at stake."d
