By John Ó Maoilearca

All options Are Equal is either an creation to the paintings of French thinker François Laruelle and an workout in nonhuman considering. For Laruelle, usual sorts of philosophy proceed to dominate our types of what counts as exemplary idea and data. in contrast, what Laruelle calls his “non-standard” method makes an attempt to deliver democracy into proposal, simply because all types of thinking—including the nonhuman—are equal.

John Ó Maoilearca examines how philosophy may perhaps seem while considered with non-philosophical and nonhuman eyes. He does so through refusing to provide an explanation for Laruelle via orthodox philosophy, opting in its place to stick to the constitution of a movie (Lars von Trier’s documentary The 5 Obstructions) as an instance of the non-standard technique. Von Trier’s movie is a meditation at the inventive limits set by means of movie, either technologically and aesthetically, and the way those limits can push our adventure of film—and of ourselves—beyond what's as a rule deemed “the ideal human.”

All options Are equivalent adopts film’s constraints in its personal scan by way of exhibiting how Laruelle’s considerably new form of philosophy is better awarded via our such a lot nonhuman kind of thought—that present in cinema.
