Summary:
Very few thinkers have travelled the heretical path that François Laruelle walks between philosophy and nonphilosophy. For Laruelle, the future of philosophy is problematic, but a mutation of its functions is possible. Up until now, philosophy has merely been a utopia concerned with the past and provided only the services of its conservation. We must introduce a rigorous and nonimaginary practice of a utopia in action, a philo-fiction - a close relative to science fiction.
