Quantum Queer: Towards a Non-Standard Queer Theory
Keywords:Laruelle, queer theory, non-philosophy, flat ontology, the human, sexual difference, the stranger
This essay looks at some potentially fruitful lines of correspondence between Laruelle’s non-philosophy and gender, feminist and queer theories. Drawing on the work of leading Laruelle scholars I seek to outline some highly tentative principles for a non-standard queer theory which would help us to think about democracy, the human, performativity, sexual difference and some other crucial questions for current queer theorizing.
