In this episode we talk with Jeremy R. Smith, co-editor of Oraxiom: A Journal of Non-Philosophy, a translator, and PhD candidate at the Centre for the Study of Theory & Criticism at Western University. Our discussion is pegged to an essay by the French philosopher Francois Laruelle titled 'Non-Philosophy as Heresy'. Together, we take on the concepts of non-philosophy and 'philosophy as the capital form of thought'. Figures mentioned in the discussion include Nietzsche, Marx, Stirner, Deleuze, Aquinas and others.
