François Laruelle and (Non-Standard) Communication
François Laruelle ve (Standart Olmayan) İletişim

Philippe THEOPHANİDİS [1]


The work of François Laruelle is not often mentioned in the fields of communication and media studies. Those research notes propose to outline three points of intersection. The first point is a short essay Laruelle wrote specifically about communication. Alongside a brief overview of this essay, it is suggested that a model already exists –shared by various authors– that could be for communication what non-philosophy is for philosophy. This model is dubbed “non-standard communication”. The notes proceed to offer two additional ways in which this non-standard communication intersects with Laruelle’s non-philosophy. The first intersection is found in the fact that non-standard communication does not communicate anything other than itself. The second intersection has to do with the fact that non-standard communication does not take place between two agents but instead is how agency occurs in the first place.


İletişim ve medya alanlarında François Laruelle’in çalışmasından pek sık söz edilmez. Bu araştırma notları, bu kesişimin üç noktasının ana hatlarını çıkarmayı önerir. İlk olarak, Laruelle’in özellikle iletişim üzerine yazdığı kısa bir deneme ele alınacaktır. Söz konusu denemeye hızlıca bir genel bakışın yanı sıra, felsefe için olmayan-felsefe neyse, iletişim için de –pek çok yazar tarafından dile getirildiği gibi- bir modelin halihazırda varolduğu öne sürülmektedir. Bu model “standart olmayan iletişim” olarak ifade edilmiştir. Bu noktadan sonra çalışma,  standart olmayan iletişimin Laruelle’in olmayan-felsefesi ile kesiştiği, iki ilave yol önerisiyle devam etmektedir. İlk kesişim, standart olmayan iletişimin kendisinin dışında hiçbir şeyle iletişim kurmadığı gerçeğinde yatmaktadır. İkinci kesişimdeyse standart olmayan iletişim, iki fail arasında yer almaktan çok bu failliğin en başta nasıl meydana geldiğiyle ilişkilidir.
