The physical and the automaton, introducing the radical dyad of the non-human -- Formalism of materialist reason -- Subjectivity as inherently philosophical entity and the third person's perspective -- Homologies and asymmetries between the automata of capital and patriarchy -- New political economy is possible only under the condition of abolishment of the metaphysics of animal-for-killing.
abstract
"Building on discussions originating in post-humanism, the non-philosophy of François Laruelle, and the science of 'species being of humanity' stemming from Marx's critique of philosophy, Katerina Kolozova proposes a radical consideration of capitalism's economic exploitation of life.
