Non-Evental Novelty: Towards Experimentation as Praxis, Oliver Human

Non-Evental Novelty: Towards Experimentation as Praxis, Oliver Human

“In this article I explore the possibilities of experimentation as a non-foundational praxis for introducing novel ways of being into existence. Beginning with a discussion, following Bataille, of the excess of any thought, I argue that any action in the world is necessarily uncertain. Using the insights of Derridean deconstruction combined with Badiousian truth procedure I argue that experimentation offers a means for acting from this uncertain position. Experimentation takes advantage of the play and uncertainty of our understanding of the world as a means of moving towards more progressive political positions.”
