Quentin Meillassoux's remarkable debut makes a strikingly
original contribution to contemporary French philosophy and is set
to have a significant impact on the future of Continental
philosophy. Written in a style that marries great clarity of
expression with argumentative rigour, "After Finitude" provides
bold readings of the history of philosophy and sets out a
devastating critique of the unavowed fideism at the heart of
Meillassoux introduces a startlingly novel philosophical
alternative to the forced choice between dogmatism and critique.
"After Finitude" proposes a new alliance between philosophy and
science and calls for an unequivocal halt to the creeping return of
religiosity in contemporary philosophical discourse.
The exceptional lucidity and the centrality of argument in
Meillassoux's writing should appeal to Analytic as well as
Continental philosophers, while his critique of fideism will be of
interest to anyone preoccupied by the relation between philosophy,
theology and religion.
