Each generation invents new practices and new writings of philosophy. Ours should have been able to introduce certain mutations that would at least be equivalent with those of cubism, abstract art, and twelve-tone serialism: it has only partially done so. But after all the deconstructions, after Wittgenstein, Heidegger, and Derrida,this demand takes on a different dimension: What do we do with philosophy itself? How do we change our relation to this thought, which keeps indicating that it is increasingly conservative and repetitive? These two questions together have prompted what we call "non-philosophy."
