Who Are Minorities, and How Are We to Think Them?
Laruelle’s essay from 1987 strives to scientifically describe the individual experience of minorities distinguished from the State’s point of view, including political philosophy. This essay pairs well with Laruelle’s texts written around this time, including Le principe de minorité (Paris: Éditions Aubier, 1982), A Biography of Ordinary Man: On Authorities and Minorities (Paris: Éditions Aubier, 1985; trans. Jessie Hock and Alex Dubilet, Cambridge: Polity, 2017), and Philosophies of Difference: A Critical Introduction to Non-Philosophy (Paris: PUF, 1986; trans. Rocco Gangle, London: Bloomsbury, 2010).
