Jeremy R. Smith returns alongside Jacob Vangeest to discuss Laruelle's view on Nietzsche and Nietzsche's influence upon the milieu of 20th century French thought, which includes thinkers such as Bataille, Deleuze & Guattari, Foucault, and others. Our brush with Laruelle's 'Nietzsche Contra Heidegger' involves a discussion of Laruelle's theory of 'political materialism' in addition to various political appropriations of Nietzsche's thought.
