Globalization and Global Thought
An Anthropological Extension of Non-Philosophy
Non-philosophy is a theoretical practice that provides an alternative account of universality in an age of globalization and cultural homogenization. In this article, the author conjoins non-philosophy and ontological anthropology to think a uni-versalist globality against particularist, nationalist, and ethnocentric reactions to globalization. In making an anthropological usage of non-philosophy, the author intends to extend François Laruelle’s notion of philosophy as “Greco-Judaic transcendence” beyond its Eurocentric relativity and toward the global field of ontologies. A non-philosophical treatment of Eduardo Viveiros de Castro’s concept of Amerindian Perspectivism prepares the way for a unified theory of philosophy and anthropology, a discipline simultaneously transcendental and empirical. In trying to articulate a variational and matrixial approach to indigenous ontologies, the author aims at a decolonial and generic extension of non-philosophy.
