In the inaugural issue of Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy, we pick up a subject that several theoretical disciplines have come to deem as the end times. While the challenges of environmental change and economic crises signal a paradigm shift, collapse thought is predominantly a characteristic of European and American academia, and the generation of scholars that it has trained over the last few decades. Are we truly witnessing the end times, or are we seeing a certain form of Western thought - under the name of philosophy with all of its methodological and identitarian characteristics - process its own end? What will grow in the barren land of philosophy? Non-Philosophy has long interrogated how philosophical thought presents itself as "the real," as the unshakable, inescapable given; it has already asked the question of the end of philosophy, or rather the perpetual loop of the death and renewal of philosophy, in the cracks of which non-philosophy finds exit routes.
