Tomorrow the Manifold - Essays on Foucault, Anarchy, and the Singularization to Come
This volume tracks the crucial role of Reiner Schurmann's engagement with the work of Michel Foucault between 1983 and 1991. Drawing on Foucault's highly original reading of the philosophical tradition, Schurmann traces the status of identity and difference in Foucault's conception of history to develop a radical phenomenological understanding of anarchy. He examines the fate of philosophy after the critique of the subject and the collapse of the divide between theory and praxis, philosophy and politics.
Taken together, these pivotal essays introduce the reader to Schurmann's most urgent concerns and assemble the conceptual tools that go on to lay the groundwork for his final work, Broken Hegemonies, which offers a subversive re-reading of the history of Western metaphysics outside of Foucault's genealogical approach. To the reader unfamiliar with Schurmann's work, these texts establish him as one of the most radical thinkers of the late 20th century, whose work might eventually become legible in our present.
