9780955308789: Fanged Noumena: Collected Writings 1987-2007

Level 1, or world-space, is an anthropomorphically scaled, predominantly vision-configured, massively multi-slotted reality system that is obsolescing very rapidly.
Garbage time is running out.
Can what is playing you make it to Level 2?

Fanged Noumena assembles for the first time the writings of Nick Land, variously described as 'rabid nihilism', 'mad black Deleuzianism', accelerationism , and 'cybergothic'. Wielding weaponised, machinically-recombined versions of Deleuze and Guattari, Reich and Freud, in the company of fellow werewolves such as Nietzsche, Bataille, Artaud, Trakl and Cioran, to a cut-up soundtrack of Bladerunner, Terminator and Apocalypse Now, Land plotted a rigorously schizophrenic escape route out of academic philosophy, and declared all-out war on the Human Security System. Despite his disappearance , Land s output has been a crucial underground influence both on recent Speculative Realist thought, and on artists, writers, musicians and filmmakers invigorated by his uncompromising and abrasive philosophical vision.

Beginning with Land's radical rereadings of Heidegger, Nietzsche and Kant, and ending with Professor Barker s cosmic theory of geo-trauma and neo-qabbalistic attempts to formulate a numerical anti-language, Fanged Noumena rescues from obscurity papers, talks and articles some of which have never previously appeared in print. Long the subject of rumour and vague legend, Land s turbulent post-genre theory-fictions of cybercapitalist meltdown smear cyberpunk, philosophy, arithmetic, poetics, cryptography, anthropology, grammatology and the occult into unrecognisable and gripping hybrids.

Fanged Noumena is a dizzying trip through Land's rigorous, incisive and provocative work, establishing it as an indispensable resource for radically inhuman thought in the twenty-first century.

About the Author:

Nick Land was lecturer in Philosophy at the University of Warwick, UK, from 1994-99, during which time he accrued a remarkable notoriety, provoking both adulation and execration. His polemical, genrebusting monograph The Thirst for Annihilation: Georges Bataille and Virulent Nihilism (Routledge, 1990) has been hailed as reaching a pitch comparable with Cioran or Nietzsche [Parallax]. Having been retired from academia, he now lives and writes in Shanghai.

Review:

Land had the most brilliantly seductive and meteoric mind, endlessly imaginative and capable of adopting, inhabiting and discarding any philosophical position. With him - and rightly so - philosophy infected every area of life, and sheer vitality of life reverberated in his thinking. I see Fanged Noumena as a kind of righteous revenge. Nick was dismissed by professional philosophers because they simply didn't want to think and preferred their turgid academic complacency. I always admired him for his unwavering desire to take thought to its absolute limit and then see how much harder one could push. --Simon Critchley

This is theory as cyberpunk fiction: Deleuze-Guattari's concept of capitalism as the virtual unnameable Thing that haunts all previous formations pulp-welded to the timebending of the Terminator films. Land's machinic theory-poetry parallelled the digital intensities of 90s jungle, techno and doomcore, anticipating 'impending human extinction becoming accessible as a dance-floor'. --Mark Fisher (K-Punk)

These texts are bite-marks quite different from those left by any academic species of cross-bred monstrosity: Surgically well-placed, covered with rainbows of infectious bruises, asymmetrical, whilst at times they suggest intimate playfulness, they are profusely saturated with acidic secretions. It is hard to imagine how a noisome beast like this could slip away under the nose of both literature and philosophy at the same time, largely unnoticed. Land generates synthetic strains of thought in which theory and fiction relentlessly problematize one another. Land s geotraumatics, constructed by gluing Freud and Reich to Deleuze and Guattari, proceeds on the basis of theory-fiction, with the earth as a plot where cosmic twists take shape. In the field of geotraumatics, not only the geological history of the earth but also its biological, cultural and economic evolutions can be subjected to forensic psychoanalytical profiling. Yet even more importantly, the earth and all its terrestrial narratives can be analyzed on the basis of their convoluted traumatic syntheses toward the abyssal outside. Land s work is rife for misunderstanding, but this is essential since it forces us to recalibrate his weapons and to reevaluate our capacities as humans while we renavigate minefields at the outer frontiers of thought (and praxis). All in all, here is Nick Land as the 'patient zero' of speculative thought for the 21st century. --Reza Negarestani

Descrizione libro Urbanomic Media Ltd, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. Nick Land s unique work, variously described as rabid nihilism , mad black deleuzianism and cybergothic , developed a rigorous and culturally-engaged escape route out of the malaise of continental philosophy . Land s work has continued to exert an influence, both through the British speculative realist philosophers who studied with him, and through the many cultural producers who have been invigorated by his uncompromising philosophical vision. Beginning with Land s radical rereadings of Heidegger, Nietzsche, Kant and Bataille, the volume collects together the papers, talks and articles of the mid-90s in which Land developed his futuristic theory-fiction of cybercapitalism gone amok; ending with his enigmatic later writings in which Ballardian fictions, poetics, cryptography, anthropology, and the occult are smeared into unrecognizable hybrids. Fanged Noumena gives a dizzying perspective on the entire trajectory of this provocative and influential thinker s work. Codice libro della libreria AAO9780955308789
