"General Theory of Victims demonstrates the force and rigour of Laruelle’s most recent thinking. He has created something genuinely original: an ethical theory untied from worldly subject positions and identities, transforming the understanding of the victim in our political and intellectual culture and offering a radically new conception of justice."
Ian James, University of Cambridge
"The philosopher’s victim is an abstraction, a theoretical plaything (where the roles of ‘oppressor’ and ‘oppressed’ can be as easily reversed as maintained). In this excellent translation of Laruelle’s work, we glimpse the presence of another, radical form of victim, one who cannot be theorized through philosophical concepts: beyond the ‘victimology’ of philosophy lies the ‘victim-in-person’."
John Ó Maoilearca, Kingston University, London
