Quentin Meillassoux: Philosophy in the Making by Graham Harman
Offers an in depth study of the emerging French philosopher Quentin Meillassoux. In this expanded edition of his landmark 2011 work on Meillassoux, Graham Harman covers new materials not published at the time of the first edition. Along with Meillassoux's startling book on Mallarme's poem 'Un coup de des jamais n'abolira le hasard', Harman discusses several new English articles by Meillassoux, including his controversial April 2012 Berlin lecture with its critique of 'subjectalism'. Freshly called to a professorship at the Sorbonne, Meillassoux's star has continued to rise. This expanded edition of the first book on Meillassoux remains the best introduction to one of Europe's most promising thinkers.
